Baldwin Air Filtration

Baldwin Filters has been a leader in industrial heavy-duty mobile filtration for over seventy years, delivering pure air that significantly extends engine life.

With over 2 200 air filter designs which exceed OEM standards and specifications for all grades of applications, Baldwin Filters is the preferred choice for air filtration in agriculture, construction, industry and consumer applications.

Baldwin air filters offer enhanced contaminant removal and holding efficiency at every flow rating with minimum initial restriction. The result is an air filter that lasts longer, traps more contaminants and extends engine life by thousands of kilometres.

Every Baldwin air filter is designed to have an efficient balance of three important characteristics – maximum efficiency, minimum initial restriction and cost-effective service life.

Baldwin air filters improve dust holding capacity and air flow efficiency to separate and stabilise media pleats through two proven methods:

  • PermaPleat®: ensures uniform airflow through inter-pleat embossing which prevents bunching.
  • Beading: a continuous adhesive bead around the circumference of the filters metal wrap to lock pleat tips in place and prevent movement.

Channel Flow®

The design of this filter occupies 50% of the space of regular filters, meaning an easier installation process in increasingly constricted interiors, yet, with a larger media area, delivers twice the contaminant capacity of traditional filters. The fully enclosed frame prevents air entering through the filter walls and protects the media during installation. The non-metal filter element allows for more environmentally friendly disposal and is fully incinerable. Baldwin's Channel Flow filter has more surface area than a traditional air filter, while requiring the same or less installation space. The Channel Flow media is formed by layering alternating rows of flat sheets and corrugated media. When completed, the media resembles a honeycomb network of channels.

Radial Seal Air Filters

With a heavy-duty urethane radial seal gasket and end cap, Baldwin’s radial seal filters are extremely durable and do not degrade under environmental and application stress while PermaPleat® technology retains the integrity of the filtration media. Its flexible outer edges permit deflection which assists with installation. The primary components of a typical heavy-duty Radial Seal air filter are the seal, moulded ends, inner and outer metal wrappers and the media. The metal wrappers protect the filter media and provide structural strength for the completed filter. With 73% of the surface area of all Baldwin metal wrappers open, minimal air flow restriction is attained. Baldwin Radial Seal air filters are ideal aftermarket replacement.

Extreme Performance Air Filters

Designed for high dust environments, these filters feature ProTura nanofibers bonded to cellulose media, delivering unequalled performance, particularly at the submicron level, meaning higher initial efficiency for greater engine protection and life and greater capacity for extended replacement intervals. ProTura nanofiber air filters feature a lattice-like structure composed of submicron diameter fibers bonded to cellulose media. The result is higher initial contaminant removal efficiency and lower flow restriction. The filter ejects its trapped contaminants: as the contaminants cake the media surface application vibration loosens the matter, which then falls from the media to the bottom of the housing. The contaminants are then removed by the housing dust ejector.

Fleetguard® Air Filtration

Fleetguard® supplies a range of mobile and industrial air filters that deliver maximum output with precise filtration for all types of engines in all operating environments.

As the only filter manufacturer that is also part of an engine manufacturer, Fleetguard® provides the very best in engine protection. Fleetguard® filtration products are developed alongside the development of each engine, testing capabilities in dozens of engine test cell and field trial environments around the world.

This improved filtration offers significant reductions in the engine’s ingestion of abrasive contaminants, while the decreased restriction allows the engine to operate at its preferred power rating more consistently.

The result is prolonged engine life and increased service intervals. Fleetguard® filtration offers dependability and reliability beyond OEM specifications and covers the widest scope of industrial air filtration applications to meet all requirements.

This range of Fleetguard filtration solutions has a history of long-lasting performance in a range of applications across Africa.

Use Fleetguard filtration products to:

  • Prolong engine life
  • Achieve longer service intervals
  • Assist with cooling maintenance
  • Provide engine protection
  • Reduce your disposal costs

Direct Flow™ Air Filters

Fleetguard® Direct Flow™ provides more performance in less space than competitive air system providers. This is the next generation of air filtration solutions and offers better engine protection and lower maintenance costs within a smaller profile than conventional air filtration systems. With performance sensors in the filter housing, users can evaluate the performance of their air filter system, allowing optimisation of filter life, reduced filter changes and lower overall maintenance costs. Direct Flow™ has proven handling capabilities for large debris and snow that causes premature plugging of the pre-cleaner and filter.

Magnum Radial Seal™ Air Filters

Designed to meet the rugged demands of equipment that operates in the harshest environments, the Magnum RS™ radial seal primary and safety air elements provide REAL™ Value. The Magnum RS™ Radial Seal Air Filter is designed for maximum engine performance in harsh, off-highway applications. Its cellulose media is resin-treated and corrugated for both increased filtration as well as offering precise channels for better air flow. The closed-end urethane design reduces the possibility of moisture-related rust. Magnum RS™ offers unique features for longer service life and optimum performance.

NanoForce® Air Filters

NanoForce® Air Filters are designed for heavy duty, diesel powered construction and mining engines, delivering the cleanest combustion air possible for large construction and mining engines. This is achieved via nanofiber pleats that combat dust on a submicron level, delivering 99.99% filtration efficiency, offering three times the protection and twice the service life of conventional air filters. Small particles can quickly bring productivity to a halt. Due to the use of air pre-cleaners, the typical primary air filter is challenged with capturing dust particles in the 0-5 micron size range. NanoForce® nanofibers combat tiny particles at a submicron level, removing and retaining the particles before they reach engine components.

OptiAir™ Air Filters

OptiAir™ systems consist of 7 filter series, covering air flow requirements up to 1100 CFM (31.15 m3/min.). The compact radial seal design, with optimised pleat spacing and depth, offers a 30% more effective media area and a 60% larger filter outlet area increases output flow and lowers restriction. These industrial air filters provide up to 50% greater capacity by increasing the effective media area resulting in extended service intervals, reduced downtime, and lower maintenance costs. These filters increase filter life by up to 50%. The lower air flow filters have rotatable 90-degree outlet and straight outlet options. OptiAir™ elements can handle higher CFM flow rates with lower initial restriction.
