Hengst fuel filters for optimal performance


Hengst fuel filters are specially designed for strict requirements of modern fuel injection systems. They prevent particles from entering the size of ≥ 2 μm in the engine and provide optimal long-term operation of the engine.

Modern fuel injection systems in gasoline and diesel engines work with extremely high pressures, which sometimes exceed 5000 bar. Pollution in the form of mineral particles or organic substances, falling into fuel injection system, can lead to serious damage to both gasoline and diesel engines. The filter also performs an additional function of removing free and emulsified water from fuel. A large amount of water in the fuel is extremely negatively affected by a high-pressure system, leading to corrosion and insufficient lubrication of such components of the injection system, like a fuel pump, fuel distributors and fuel injectors.

High Quality Protection

Hengst fuel filters ensure reliable protection against particles and, if necessary, from water in fuel. As a system partner of automakers and the developer of filtering systems, the company offers its filters in original quality and for an independent secondary market. This means that we use only high-quality filter materials with an extremely high degree of filtering. Hengst uses the most advanced production processes and filtering materials, as well as the medium-blowing medium for effective water separation.

Three versions for pure fuel

The screw filter, perhaps, once the most popular form factor for filters, is an enclosure filter, usually located in the engine compartment or under the engine between the fuel tank and the engine, and is replaced as a single integer during maintenance. In addition to standard interchangeable filters for passenger cars, filters with a plug for drain drain and the discharge valve are also common.

Unlike the screw filters, the filter elements do not have the case, and when replacing it is necessary to change only the insertion itself. They are used both in passenger and in trucks, as well as in agricultural and construction equipment. Hengst uses only thermally processed materials in the manufacture of their filtering liners, due to which, in contrast to body filters, filter elements inserts can be easily and environmentally disposed.

The built-in fuel filter is a mesh or paper filter that is installed between the fuel lines. The filter housing is made of aluminum, sheet steel or plastic, depending on the application. Linear fuel filters are particularly suitable for use in modern gasoline injection systems and can be equipped with additional pressure regulators and thermostatic valves.

The fuel filter provides long-term engine protection under the condition of its timely replacement. Otherwise, the filter can be closed as a result of long-term use, increasing fuel resistance and not allowing a sufficient amount of fuel to fall into the injection system, which leads to a decrease in performance, problems with the start and poor-quality spraying of the nozzles. In addition, the resulting incorrect air-fuel ratio increases fuel consumption and emission levels.
