MANN+HUMMEL at Agritechnica 2019: MANN+HUMMEL presents new technologies for agricultural machines

MANN+HUMMEL at Agritechnica 2019: MANN+HUMMEL presents new technologies for agricultural machines
  • New software solution enables fleet operators to plan service precisely
  • Air cleaners protect fuel cells from particles and harmful gases and offer space-optimized solutions for demanding applications
  • Reliable engine protection through urea filter module and fuel filter with three-stage water separation
  • Efficient crankcase ventilation system using ProVent2
  • Fast and clean service through WAVELOCK spin-on filter concept

Predictive service, protection of valuable components and space-optimized use - these are just a few advantages of the new technologies presented by the filtration specialist MANN+HUMMEL at the Agritechnica trade fair in Hanover.

Precise service planning and reduced total cost of ownership through software solution

Information on the status of their vehicles is a valuable asset for the fleet operators of agricultural machines, construction machines and heavy duty commercial vehicles. The smooth operation of their vehicles is only possible if the vehicles are properly maintained.

Until now, operators had to rely on their experience or fixed intervals to determine the right time for these maintenance operations. With its comprehensive software solution including sensors, MANN+HUMMEL is the first filter manufacturer worldwide which offers a solution for precise monitoring of the filter Status.

This proactive monitoring offers many advantages over common reactive measures. Maintenance times can be precisely matched to the machine schedule and reduce unplanned downtimes. This has a positive effect on the efficiency of the vehicles and thus reduces the total cost of ownership.

Air cleaners protect fuel cells from particles and harmful gases and offer space-optimized solutions for challenging conditions

Exhaust gas legislation is becoming stricter and with it the search for alternative drives. An important concept in this context is the fuel cell as an energy supplier for the electric drive. Central components of the fuel cell stacks react extremely sensitive to particles and harmful gases in the intake air. To protect the fuel cell stacks, MANN+HUMMEL has further developed an air cleaner from the ENTARON HD range. The catalog component which is usually equipped with a conventional filter element with a cellulose media is now fitted with a new activated carbon filter element. In this way, the air filter can not only separate particles but also bind harmful gases and optimally protect the fuel cell.

The IQORON VP range from MANN+HUMMEL offers a flexible filtration concept which shows its strengths especially in extremely dusty environments. The two-stage air cleaners which make the most of installation space complements conventional round air cleaners and with nominal flow rates from 14 to 33 cubic meters per minute provides the necessary flexibility for numerous applications. The core element of the compact air cleaner series is the innovative filter element concept called VarioPleat. It provides a particularly high power density with filter systems with an axial air flow.

Reliable engine operation due to compact urea filter module and fuel filter with three-stage water Separation

Urea filters are particularly stressed in construction and agricultural machinery. The use of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems in particular is a major challenge for off‑highway vehicles. The dust in the environment quickly contaminates the urea solution used to clean the exhaust gases in systems. Because refuelling takes place in a more polluted environment, but also because the SCR tanks are not sufficiently ventilated. MANN+HUMMEL developed the patented urea filter module to ensure the best possible starting time for the SCR system, robust operation, well-coordinated service intervals and efficient protection for the feed pump.

In addition to reducing fuel contaminations, separating water from the fuel is crucial for reliable engine operation. MANN+HUMMEL offers fuel filters with three-stage water separation and high-efficient filter media. This ensures reliable and robust protection of the injection system over the entire service life of the engine.

Efficient crankcase ventilation with ProVent2

The compact ProVent2 range for crankcase ventilation offers a particularly high separation efficiency and enables an easy service. The series separates the oil droplets from the blowby gas with a coalescence separator and reduces the remaining oil content to a minimum. With an optimized filter element with a high-efficient media made from glass fiber and a non-woven fabric, the ProVent² range impresses with a service life which is up to eight times longer than comparable Solutions.

Fast and clean service through WAVELOCK spin-on filter concept

The innovative WAVELOCK spin-on filter concept enables easy, quick and clean service. The basis for this is a bayonet lock, which securely connects the filter head to the spin-on filter and thus simplifies servicing. MANN+HUMMEL will in future offer its range of WAVELOCK spin-on filters as a modular system which is to be expanded in the coming years to include other sizes.
