Clean air in the driver's cab: Protection against particulate matter, nitrogen oxides and allergens through MANN-FILTER cabin air filters

Ludwigsburg, 29 March 2019 – Changing the cabin air filter in good time is particularly important in Spring, when the peak pollen count season starts. Global filtration specialist MANN+HUMMEL, based in Ludwigsburg Germany, provides effective protection against allergens, harmful gases and particulate matter with its MANN-FILTER FreciousPlus cabin air filters.

A vehicle ventilation system draws in huge volumes of air from outside the vehicle into the driver's cabin. Each hour, several hundred thousand liters of this polluted outside air pass through the vehicle's ventilation system into the interior, bringing with them not only allergens but also particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, and other harmful gases that pose a threat to the health of the driver. This means that the air in the interior of the vehicle is often much more polluted than the ambient air. Thorough purification of the outside air by means of a cabin air filter is therefore essential, especially for professional drivers. However, a cabin air filter can only carry out its meticulous cleaning task properly if it is replaced in accordance with the service schedule.

MANN-FILTER cabin air filters in original equipment quality frees the air from outside the vehicle of nearly 100 percent of particles and harmful gases. The MANN-FILTER FreciousPlus filters out particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of 2.5 micrometers (PM 2.5), almost completely. For comparison: These particles are up to 30–40 times smaller than the thickness of a human hair. Its sources include the abrasion of tires and brake disks. These minute particles can penetrate deep into the lungs. Ultrafine particles can even enter the bloodstream via the pulmonary alveoli and can cause respiratory diseases and cancer.

In addition, the FreciousPlus cabin air filter absorbs unpleasant odors and poisonous gases such as nitrogen oxides and ozone. This reduces the nitrogen oxide concentration in the driver's cab.

The biofunctional and antimicrobial coating on the FreciousPlus also traps the allergens which can be released from pollen as well as blocking the growth of bacteria and mold fungi.
