Clean air is critical to the performance and life of your engine. For efficient combustion, a modern diesel engine requires several thousand times as much air as it does fuel. Under normal operating conditions, to burn one gallon of fuel you have to clean 15,000 gallons of air. JIMCO’s Air Filter is designed to remove solid particulates, such as dust, pollen, mold, and bacteria from the air.
JIMCO’s Air Filters are used where air quality is important. Therefore, it will increase your engine life and prevents engine from wearing, besides also providing better fuel economy to vehicles.
JIMCO’s Oil Filters remove impurities and undesired components from the oil that flows through an internal combustion engine in on- and off- road motor vehicles, light aircraft, and various naval vessels. The oil is necessary to lubricate the engine, and as such, it has to be free from particles that could slow it down by enhancing forces of friction, and greatly reducing effectiveness and efficiency of the engine. JIMCO’S oil filter gets rid of these particles, enabling the oil to lubricate the engine.
Filters are an important part of hydraulic systems for filtering out contamination and debris. Contamination and debris in hydraulic systems come from many sources. Contamination includes metal flakes, glass, ash, lint, various fibers, rubber, sand, etc. Contamination is very small – generally in the 1~100 micron range. Over time contamination can impact component reliability and performance of components. The purpose of hydraulic filters is to remove contamination from a system and keep the fluid cleanliness within design tolerances.
JIMCO’s Hydraulic Filters are designed with high system performance, design flexibility and product quality to meet your needs. JIMCO Filtration performs multi-pass, pressure drop, flow-fatigue, and hydrostatic burst testing on all hydraulic elements to ensure product reliability and top performance.
JIMCO’s Fuel filters serve a vital function in today's modern, tight-tolerance engine fuel systems. Unfiltered fuel may contain several kinds of contamination, for example paint chips and dirt that has been knocked into the tank while filling, or rust caused by moisture in a steel tank. If these substances are not removed before the fuel enters the system, they will cause rapid wear and failure of the fuel pump and injectors, due to the abrasive action of the particles on the high-precision components used in modern injection systems. JIMCO’s Fuel filters also improve performance, as the fewer contaminants present in the fuel, the more efficiently it can be burnt.
Fuel filters need to be maintained at regular intervals. If a filter is not replaced regularly it may become clogged with contaminants and cause a restriction in the fuel flow, causing an appreciable drop in engine performance as the engine struggles to draw enough fuel to continue running normally.
