Turbo Precleaners are proudly manufactured and assembled in the U.S.A. All Turbo Precleaners come with our lifetime guarantee on their Titanium spinners, and the Turbo Engine Guarantee.
What is Turbo Precleaner
A Precleaner makes your engine breath easier by cleaning the incoming air passing into its air intake. It is installed before your engine’s Air Filter, and reduces the amount of problematic dust entering your equipment.
All Precleaners operate on the same basic principle, that centrifugal force will separate dirt from air ensuring that you get the Highest Separation Efficiency (up to 85% of dust and particulate matter) and Lowest Restriction out of your Precleaner. Yet, not all Precleaners are made equal.
The Turbo Promise
Why do we dare to promise you that our product will make a difference to you and your fleet of equipment? Because Turbo Precleaners have a 40-year proven record of performance, separating 87% of dust and other particles below 20 microns, and 98% above 20 microns.
Turbo Precleaners remove up to 98% of all air born contaminates (dust, snow, insects, sand, etc), all while achieving the necessary balance between efficiency and restriction
The Turbo Benefits
1. The turbo Precleaner helps to reduce costs incurred by dust ingestion.
2. Removes the dust before it enters the engine’s air intake.
3. Significant savings on Engine Air Filters and Fuel
4. Better overall engine performance
5. Decreased maintenance time and cost
Important of Air Intake
1. Combustion engines obtain energy from fuel by burning it.
2. Burning fuel requires oxygen, which comes from air.
3. An engine spends more than 25% of its time acting as an air pump, drawing air into itself.
4. Restricting the flow of air into the engine = higher fuel consumption, loss of power
Think of your engine air intake as the “lungs” of your machine:
The amount of fuel an engine can burn efficiently depends on the quality of the air it ingests. Maximum performance demands maximum efficiency.
In much the same way your lungs protect you from harmful chemicals and allow you to breathe the air that allows you to survive, your customer’s too should worry about protecting their engine’s air intake, the “lungs” the protect their machine from damage caused by dust and other particles.
These particles, if allowed into the air intake, can cause big, expensive problems, destroying air filters and costly components that allow the engine to run.
How Turbo Works
1. Dirty air is drawn through the protective screen that repels stones and large debris.
2. Carefully designed, compound angle vanes spin the incoming air causing centrifugal force to separate the dust and dirt from the air.
3. The dirt spins down the wall of the main chamber, into the blower chamber, and out the discharge ports at the base of the unit
4. The rapidly spinning blades become a blower, blowing the dust away from your air intake.
Choosing the Right Turbo
Using your CFM value, please select the correct CFM range below to determine which Turbo best suits your needs:
Model 24: 100 – 300 CFM
Model 35: 200 – 400 CFM
Model 46: 300 – 700 CFM
Model 68: 600 – 1200 CFM
Model 15: 15 – 75 CFM
Model 50: 50 – 250 CFM
Model 200: 200 – 500 CFM
Model 500: 500 – 1100 CFM
800 – 1500 CFM
Please Note: If you find that the model you have chosen offers a Restriction Level of more than 5″ for your CFM, please go up one size to the next model. Excessive Restriction Levels may cause premature wear and hamper the performance of your engine.
