Engine air filtration system

Recommended Posts

Friends, I have got a question please... assist.

Can anyone please assist with a basic "simplified" explanation explaining a systematic engine air-filtration process? i.e. from the atmosphere back to the atmosphere asking the WHY question for every step.

lets discuss.

Engine filtration system simply defined as compressed air are pass through the radiator so temperature of the air are reduced then its passed through the air filtral. In Air filtral two filtral are stabilize first air filtral are filter the air & reduce impurity in the air & u can clean the first filter if chokes condition are occured . But second filter do not clean because its is make  a proper way only which air are pass through in to second filter whoes air are come to the first filter (in which not contain carban & impurity). Filter air are move to inlate manifold of the engine. All process are done & all are know very well.

Air Filtration is designed to eliminates dirty particles to enter into any intake chambers. In engine air filtration, the function is the same, and its primary purpose is to minimize CO & CO2 deposits in its exhaust system. CO & CO2 are the product of Air & Fuel mixture from the combustion chamber.

it simply defines filtration of air particles  that enters the intake manifold by the use of air filter weither it is a caburetor type engine or direct inject engine which uses turbo system to the engine.

with the carburetor type: filter-carburetor-intake manifold-intake valve-fuel to air mixture-compression-ignition-power to exhaust

the same thing with turbo direct inject type engine you just only remove the carburetor because it has induction manifold which known as intake manifold.
