Trouble-Free Air Filter Cleaner
"The Filt-O-Kleen is designed to clean dirt from paper air filters," says Clifton Wilbourn of Versailles, Mo. The big issue here is keeping your engines running with horsepower and fuel economy at its peak performance. "If you go through a lot of filters, it'll pay for itself in no time," says Wilbourn. "It's not intended to permanently replace the purchase of new air filters. It'll just make them last longer."
Each tank comes with instructions and a diagram for easy assembly. Tanks are powder coated inside and outside and are pressure tested at 300 psi.
To clean a filter, the tank is placed on top of the filter with the gasket side up toward the base plate. The volume of air pressure cleans the filter of dirt and debris instantly.
"It's a safe and efficient way of cleaning paper filters at an affordable price. It does an amazing job of cleaning dirt from filters," says Wilbourn. "The air tank can be pressurized and used on filters ranging in pressure from 70 to 110 psi, depending on size of filter."
One Missouri study found replacing extremely dirty filters increased fuel efficiency by as much as 20 percent.
"You can spend a lot of time cleaning filters other ways and possibly damage the paper in the filter. The Filt-o-Kleen works much better and it takes less time, too."
One model is available. A 10-gal. model sells for $340.00 plus S&H.
