Improved performance with BMC Carbon Dynamic Air box (CDA)
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.
Carbon Dynamic Air box Performance
The CDA filtering system is composed of a cylindrical carbon fibre airbox containing a washable filtering element. The choice of this composite material is due to the fact that carbon has low thermal conductivity allowing insulation from the engine heat to the aspirated air. Replacing the original airbox with the CDA, fresh air is channelled directly to the filter, thermally insulated inside the carbon airbox and then conveyed to the engine through an air flow deflector with minimum loss of power
The CDA filtration system is connected to a frontal air intake via a flexible aluminum tube. Thanks to the dynamic air intake you get a real supercharging system that conveys fresh air to the air box at a speed and capacity greater than that of traditional systems. The air flow entering the dynamic air intake is accelerated further thanks to the air flow deflector inside the carbon fibre airbox. Dynamic over-boosting, greater air flow, higher pressure and colder air are the elements which help to significantly increase the performance of the engine both in terms of power and torque
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.
The BMC filter element is washable; we advise you to clean it every 15,000 miles (25.000 km) to maintain the maximum performance. You can buy BMC Complete Cleaner kit here in our store. See product list for details.
