Protection against NOx and fine dust: the new MEYLE-PD cabin air filter keeps the air clean inside the vehicle

14 Jan 2021

Awareness surrounding the topic of health and environmental pollution associated with driving is increasing. Drivers and passengers want to protect themselves from harmful gases and particles, which in addition to smog, exhaust, soot, ozone and pollen also includes fine dust and nitrogen oxide (NOx). The vehicle’s cabin air filter plays a key role, preventing contamination of the cabin and ensuring cleaner and fresher air in the vehicle. With the new MEYLE-PD cabin air filter, Hamburg manufacturer MEYLE offers the appropriate filter: the high-quality filter media are enhanced with specially impregnated active carbon and can thereby provide a particularly high adsorption of NOx. They also offer a very high filter efficiency and an enormously high capture of fine dust, making the filter suitable particularly for large cities with high traffic and levels of fine dust pollution and ensuring seamless airflow with minimal loss in pressure.

What makes the new MEYLE-PD cabin air filter so special and unique on the market: unlike conventional cabin air filters with active carbon, filtered NOx is chemically bound in the filter material as a salt and is never released again even when disposed of. The new cabin air filter thus permanently and sustainably reduces NOx in the environment and directly in the cabin.

MEYLE is the only manufacturer in the aftermarket to offer a filter with this feature. MEYLE is offering 38 new references for the MEYLE-PD cabin air filter.

An overview of the layers of the new MEYLE-PD cabin air filter:

The cover fleece filters larger particles of dust.
The particle medium is outstanding at capturing fine dust.
The two impregnated layers of activated carbon chemically bind the NOx.
The carrier fleece serves as a basis for the layer of activated carbon and the particle medium.

The new MEYLE-PD cabin air filters have expanded not only the existing MEYLE range of nearly 400 cabin air filters, but also the MEYLE-PD product range. PD stands for ‘Performance Design’ and, following the success of the MEYLE-PD brake components, now also includes additional spare parts which boast performance-oriented properties and promise high efficiency.

Replacing the filter twice a year
For optimal filter performance, MEYLE recommends replacing the cabin air filter every 15,000 kilometres or, better yet, twice a year. The tyre changes in spring and autumn are a good opportunity. Over time fine dust, soot, pollen and even insects clog the filter, resulting in a gradual loss of function. In addition to cabin air filters, MEYLE also offers an extensive portfolio of high-performance oil, air and fuel filters for all conventional vehicle models.
