Micro-abrasive dust: dirtier than dirt itself.

All around us, there are particles in the air that are much smaller that dirt, yet they account for as much as 85% of all engine damage. These particles are less than 20 microns in size and are known as micro-abrasive dust.

Micro-abrasive dust consists of tiny silcon particles that severly damage engines and drastically shorten the life of filters. Worst of all these nearly-invisible particles are everywhere - not just in extreme environments.

It's no wonder that the filter industry is researching solutions to combat micro-abrasive dust - it's quickly becoming recognised as the single most deadly contaminant to today's precision engines.
