Improved performance with BMC Panel Sports Air Filter
Main BMC's aims are product quality and enlarging the products range in the quickest way. BMC air filters are designed and produced by Italian Engineers to be used in extreme conditions and to give you the highest performance.
Since 1996 BMC air filters have equipped some of the most important Teams in F1 and American Le Mans Series. Thus demonstrating the high quality level of the product.
BMC air filters are designed and produced to ensure a higher airflow than original paper filters. In F1, for example, BMC cotton filters minimize the loss of airflow pressure passing through the air filter; this way ensures the best conditions for full exploitation of maximum power.
Therefore the benefits of replacing the original paper filter with BMC cotton air filter produced using the same technology and materials as the F1 air filters are evident.
Design and materials
Qualified engineers using advanced software and expert technicians using the latest technologies produce BMC air filters. An F1 filter must be very light, must be made of the best raw materials and must improve performance.
For this reason BMC use only alloy mesh with epoxy coating to ensure protection from petrol fumes and from oxidization due to the humidity of the air. The filtering material is composed of special cotton gauze soaked with low-viscosity oil to give you the best air permeability.
BMC technical staff has developed a particular production system based on soft rubber moulding which produces the familiar BMC red filters. They are made in one single piece with no welded joints in the corners, thus avoiding breaking risks. This system, called "Full Moulding" comes from R&D in F1 and it is significant of BMC air filters' technical and quality specifics.
The BMC air filter is washable; we advise you to clean it every 15,000 miles (25.000 kilometers) to maintain the maximum performance.
