The high quality of original filter elements is often abused and brazenly copied!
These elements that appear to be “cost-effective” threaten your system in a huge extent! To reach low prices only cheap materials are used. The high-quality, multi-layer glass fiber media are for example replaced by simple paper non-wovens. Finest filtration with high separation efficiency is not possible. Compared to a standard element a 20 times higher dirt amount passes through the cheap elements. Your components are no longer protected against contamination! Due to the inferior material the service life of the counterfeit is just a fraction of the original.More frequent filter changes are the result.
In addition, the counterfeits cannot withstand even low differential pressures and collapse (getting compressed until dirt breaks through). Dirt gets freely to the clean side. Thus, the filters cannot fullfil their purpose! The high contamination can lead to malfunctions up to sudden breakdowns of the entire system.
Extend the service life of your components and the whole system by using original elements only.
