The cabin filter is responsible for cleaning outside air entering the vehicle. Because up to 100,000 litres of air can be blown into the vehicle’s interior in less than an hour, it can easily become clogged with debris. Unfortunately a blocked cabin filter will not be effective, resulting in a below-par heating and cooling system, and causing the air inside the vehicle to become more polluted than the air outside up to six time more. Similarly, bacteria and fungi can accumulate in the filter, leading to unpleasant smells in the cabin. Fitting a high-performance cabin filter, such as Delphi Technologies, is essential in eliminating these harmful pollutants and odours, safeguarding both you and the air conditioning (A/C) system.
All our cabin air filters use a high-performance, non-woven fabric to eliminate dust, pollen, bacteria and exhaust particles, amongst others. The specially designed filter fabric contains up to five individual layers, removing near 100 percent of harmful pollutants.
Over time moisture can build up in the filter and become a feeding ground for bacteria and mould. This can then spread into the lines of the HVAC system, where it emits unpleasant odours. For the ultimate protection from this and other pollutants, we also offer a range of carbon activated filters. Our carbon activated filters feature the same high quality, non-woven fabric as our particle filters, with the addition of a layer of activated carbon. Sandwiched between two layers of fleece, this highly effective technology removes more pollutants than standard filters, and expels nasty gases and smells too.
