Abstract:

This final report covers design and development of a family of dry- type engine air cleaners, ranging from 110 to 800 cfm capacity, for wheeled and light-tracked vehicles. Basic considerations included designing the family to 1 withstand the extremes encountered in military use, 2 adequately protect vehicle engine and, 3 afford sufficient installation versatility to allow widespread use. The resulting family of air cleaners utilizes interchangeable air manifolds and dust cups, allowing 18 variations from 6 basic models. Laboratory tests confirmed performance meeting requirements of MIL-E-46736MO. A family of air cleaners is now available for wheeled and light-tracked vehicles and should be used wherever possible on new engine air cleaner installations to better standardize military air cleaners.
