Baldwin touts Channel Flow air filter as stronger, more reliable

Baldwin Filters says its Channel Flow air filters feature a design that provides a stronger, more reliable filter. According to Baldwin, the key to the filter is the element; the flat and corrugated media – when formed into a round or racetrack media pack – is inherently strong, eliminating the need for a center tube and metal wrappers of a traditional air filter. This translates to a more environmentally friendly filter, the company says.

Air enters an open channel on the inlet side and flows through the media, exiting through an adjacent open channel; contaminants remain trapped within the channels and won’t dislodge during servicing, according to Baldwin.

The filter also features a durable frame, which encloses the media pack, the company says; the frame, which protects the media from damage during handling and prevents air from being drawn in through the sides of the filter, adds an extra element of protection for the engine. Baldwin also has incorporated a stronger media support to help provide protection from increases in differential pressure.
