Automotive industry

Filter technology and filter systems have not changed or evolved much since the 1980s. Dry filter systems are predominant. In addition, filters meant to shield the passenger compartment from pollution or contamination, are almost never exchanged in the car’s entire lifetime. This deteriorates safety, air quality and passenger wellbeing.

Several successful tests – run by Honda in Tokyo in 2004 and at the Duisburg-Essen University in Germany in 2008 – prompted the idea to introduce dexwet filter technology to the automotive industry. A great number of suppliers have shown interest. In order to speed up the process, dexwet decided in 2014 to continue testing and to become involved in motorsports.

Clean air in the passenger room

So that the indoor air in summer and winter can be distributed evenly throughout the vehicle, blower fans are used. These are matched to the back pressure and efficiency behavior of a carcabin filter accordingly need the necessary performance and thus also have a corresponding model (especially necessary for vehicle air conditioning and heating systems). The simpler the air flow through the filter and the cleaning thereby, the smaller this blower fan can be performed. This creates resources in performance, size and weight, which in turn makes the entire energy management of the vehicle more efficient. At the end, there are savings in fuel and material consumption as well as in service and maintenance costs.

You can count on finding patented dexwet filter technology in automotive manufacturing soon. We are also currently in negotiations with developers, suppliers and manufacturers of construction and agricultural machines, trucks and buses in Europe, Northern America and Asia.
