Why you should recommend cabin air filter replacement to customers this spring

MANN-FILTER cabin air filters offer protection against particulate matter, nitrogen oxides and allergens

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 has said.

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 MANN+HUMMEL spokesperson said: “A vehicle ventilation system draws in huge volumes of air from outside the vehicle into the passenger compartment.

“Each hour, several hundred thousand litres 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 vehicle occupants.

Health threat

“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 frequent drivers, allergy sufferers, and children.”

MANN+HUMMEL say its MANN-FILTER cabin air filters in original equipment quality frees the air from outside the vehicle of nearly 100 per cent of particles and harmful gases.

The MANN-FILTER FreciousPlus filters out particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of 2.5 micrometres (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 tyres and brake disks.

Odours and poisonous gases

In addition, the FreciousPlus cabin air filter adsorbs unpleasant odours and poisonous gases such as nitrogen oxides and ozone.

This reduces the nitrogen oxide concentration in the vehicle interior.

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 mould fungi.

With over 100 different types of FreciousPlus cabin air filters in original equipment quality, MANN-FILTER covers nearly 70 per cent of the European passenger car and transporter fleet.
