These Air Precleaners consist of a steel housing with static vanes and a rust-proof rotor mounted on dual ball bearings over double-welded plate steel. The outlet tube can be connected to metal ducting using the supplied reduction sleeves or to a flexible hose connection (”E” models). DUSTBUSTER Engine Air Precleaners are powder coated for a durable, corrosion-resistant finish. Air flows range from 53 to 988 CFM (1.5 to 28.0 m3/min).
DUSTBUSTER Under Hood Engine Air Precleaners are designed to be mounted on or connected to the air filter intake of the gasoline, diesel or compressed natural gas engine air cleaner. Their compact size and shape makes mounting easy in under hood applications where space is limited. Their applications include trucks; pick ups; tractors; earth moving, construction and mining equipment; stationary engines; generator sets; snow removal equipment and street sweepers.
HOW THEY WORK
DUSTBUSTER Under Hood Engine Air Precleaners can be remote mounted or attached directly to the air cleaner, eliminating the need for an external air intake. Air enters the precleaner through static vanes causing the air to spin. As the air spins, centrifugal force separates dust, dirt, insects, rain and snow from the air stream. The swirling air drives a high velocity rotor that acts as a blower, evacuating contaminants through special discharge ports in the side of the unit. Only purified air flows to the air cleaner.
