Baldwin Filters announced the release of its new CA30102 Channel Flow EXO air filter. According to the company, the Baldwin CA30102 is the first aftermarket air filter to replace the P611698 OE filter for Kenworth truck models T440, T470, T660 and T800.
“The CA30102 utilizes Baldwin’s proprietary Channel Flow EXO technology,” the company explained. “Channel Flow EXO takes the unique fluted media design of Channel Flow air filters and combines it with proprietary structural technology. As a result, the CA30102 is as durable as it is efficient, surpassing the OE in its ability to protect heavy-duty engines under the most extreme working conditions.”
Like all its filters, Baldwin said the CA30102 meets strict quality standards. “Not only are Baldwin filters tested above and beyond industry standards,” said Stefan Polywka, vice president of operations, Clarcor Engine Mobile Group. “Our manufacturing processes exceed 6 Sigma standards, guaranteeing that every filter will meet our customers’ high expectations for durability and performance.”
Baldwin added that its venting system evacuates trapped air from the primary and secondary filters enabling fuel to build up the pressure needed for a proper prime. Air vent tubes provide a passage for air trapped in the fuel filter housing to escape to ensure the engine starts quickly, the company said.
The PF9924 KIT is one example of this new technology. The PF9924 KIT is designed specifically for use on Detroit Diesel DD13, DD15 and DD16 engines where the A0000904251 fuel filter is specified.
“The PF9924 KIT meets or exceeds the OE filter in contaminant removal efficiency and capacity (per ISO 19438) and water removal efficiency (per SAE JI488),” according to the company.
