MANN develops brake dust filter innovation

mann-brake-filterMANN+HUMMEL is once again at the cutting edge of filter technology with the development of a brake dust particle filter which substantially reduces the release of particulates which are created during braking into the atmosphere.

Braking in city traffic creates significantly more dust than exhaust emissions. Every braking action creates brake dust through friction on the brake disc and brake pads. This mainly comprises particulates and due to the small particle size is harmful to health and the environment. A study from the World Health Organization came to the conclusion that 92% of humans live in areas where air pollution is above the permissible level.

After successful tests on the test bench the brake dust particle filter is now being tested in the "fine dust eater" fleet by MANN+HUMMEL in tests which are close to real driving conditions. The newly developed brake dust particle filter from MANN+HUMMEL considerably reduces the emission of particulates and as a result less brake dust particulates are able to penetrate the ambient air in traffic. The filter can be adapted to existing installation space in the area of the brake disc. The brake dust particle filter is suitable for use with all types of drive ranging from electric vehicles to hybrid vehicles as well as conventional petrol and diesel vehicles.

The robust housing of the filter fitted close to the brake caliper allows the filter to prevent the emission directly at the source of fine dust to the ambient air. The filter medium which efficiently filters the various particle sizes is made from a material which is resistant to temperature and corrosion. The retention of the fine dust directly at the place where it is created also prevents the soiling of alloy rims.

The brake dust particle filter from MANN+HUMMEL with its robust design can also become a coloured styling element. It will also have application on trucks and trains.

This development shows how MANN is looking to the future and developing new products which can add value in a changing aftermarket.
