How Precleaners Work

  1. Dirty air enters the CENTRI®, which is clamped onto your equipment’s air intake.
  2. Specially-designed vanes, curved and angled to precisely direct air flow, move the dirty air toward the stainless steel impeller.
  3. The dynamically balanced, one piece impeller (CENTRI®’s only moving part) creates a tornado inside the housing.
  4. The centrifugal force of the tornado expels the heavier than air dirt particles, chaff, dust, snow, rain, etc., out the discharge louver
  5. Cleaned air enters the engine intake pipe, and the filter element has only the very light particles to remove.

Note that there are no external piping, evacuator valves, bowls, braces or brackets, which can malfunction and affect the efficiency of the CENTRI® Precleaner.
