Blue Print reveals filtration range

With over 2,200 part numbers in its filtration portfolio for multiple makes and models, Blue Print offers one of the most extensive ranges available in the aftermarket, and this is continuing to grow.

Each filter protects and preserves internal components of the engine by supplying the necessary circulation of clean air and fluids.

Blue Print filters are manufactured with high-quality materials to ensure optimum performance.

The portfolio is continually reviewed and researched for gaps in the market, and new parts are added.

Blue Print’s percentage coverage is still growing and currently covers over 95 per cent of the vehicle parc with over 100,000 applications in range for a variety of vehicle makes and models.

Oil filters

Engines rely on clean oil circulating under pressure to prevent metal-to-metal contact of bearings and cam gear.

The oil also aids cooling by carrying heat away from the pistons, cylinders and turbochargers.

Microscopic wear particles, dust and soot from combustion must be filtered out to prevent them from being embedded in the bearing surfaces and increasing engine wear.

Air filters

Air filters remove particles from the air before they get into the engine.

On average, an air filter deals with approximately 10,000 litres of air for every one litre of fuel burned and particle sizes can vary from visible granules of grit and sand to microscopic soot particles, tyre rubber and brake dust.

Fuel filters

Modern petrol and diesel fuel systems contain the most accurately engineered components in the engine.

They are manufactured to tolerances of just two microns and are put under massive loads.

Fuel not only burns to make power but in the case of a diesel engine, it also lubricates the moving parts in the pump and injectors.

A fuel tank can contain particulates and water, so the fuel filter must be manufactured with media of the correct type and quality to stop these impurities from reaching and damaging the precision injection components.

Cabin filters

Cabin filters also referred to as pollen filters, remove almost all airborne pollutants before they can be drawn into the passenger compartment.

This includes dirt and dust, pollens, vehicle exhaust emissions, sulphur dioxide, soot, tyre rubber, brake dust and other harmful substances.

A Blue Print spokesperson said: “All Blue Print filters undergo rigorous testing to ensure quality is upheld at all times and are checked against the manufacturers’ specifications to ensure the first-time fitment every time.

“By observing the recommended service intervals, Blue Print filters provide optimum performance.”
