Fuel filter help to efficiently prepare gasoline and diesel fuels for the combustion process. For this purpose, they use high-separation filter media and feature an advanced functionality scope. The fuel pressure in gasoline filters can then be adjusted by a pressure regulator integrated in the fuel filter.
For diesel engines, the functional range of the MAHLE fuel filter modules can be significantly more complex. The fuel can be cooled or heated, for example, or the water content of the fuel can be separated.
Increasingly smaller package constraints require higher filtration performance, especially with respect to particle retention efficiency. This trend requires the use of high-performance filters, more complex flow guidance design, and new filter element concepts.
As a technology leader in the area of plasticized filter elements, MAHLE can react flexibly to any package constraint with the application of a wide range of design types.
