Air Filter Air-Flow Demonstrator

Air Filter Air-Flow Demonstrator

While automotive disposable paper air filters and K&N lifetime performance air filters both provide the protection your car's engine needs, air flow restriction is what sets these two types of filters apart. K&N air filters provide virtually unrestricted air flow when compared to a typical paper air filter. The restriction from paper air filters can rob your car of performance and power. An air flow demonstrator can be used to visually show the vast differences between a K&N high flow cotton air filter and a typical disposable paper filter. This air flow demonstrator uses electric fans inside an acrylic box to pull air through an air filter raising a ping pong ball enclosed in the air exit tube mounted on top of the unit.

In the first phase of the demonstration, the air flow demonstrator is set to the ON position without placing an air filter in the front of the box. The ping pong ball shoots straight to the top of the tube because there is no restriction to hold it back.

The second phase of the demonstration is done with a disposable paper air filter installed and sealed to the front of the display box. You will notice that the ping pong ball does not shoot right to the top of the tube. The restriction of the paper filter prevents much of the air from being pulled in by the fans.

In the last stage of this demonstration the paper filter is replaced with a K&N high flow air filter. This reveals the outstanding benefits of K&N's high flow technology. The K&N air filter allows virtually unrestricted air flow into the box pushing the ping pong ball right back to the top of the tube. This visualization demonstrates that K&N air filters have less restriction than typical disposable paper filters.

K&N high flow technology is designed to increase the efficiency of the combustion process creating more power and torque. The multiple layers of cotton fibers in the filter provide many levels of dust retention. This characteristic allows the K&N filter to hold significantly more dirt per square inch of media than the average paper filter. Utilizing these scientific principles, K&N has been able to design an air filter that is very free flowing while also being highly efficient at removing dirt from the air.

More information on K&N's high flow filtering technology can be found on Our Air Filter Facts Page offers engine air filtration facts, our extensive testing, and technical information on K&N air filters. Audio books in MP3 format are also available on this page as a training tool. These audio MP3 files can also be found as a free download in the iTunes Store (search for air filters).
