Tube Body precleaners contain very tight tolerances which are quickly filled by snow, and by design, are not suitable for snow applications.This system relies upon a particle separation process which takes place in very small diameter.

Snow occupies a large volume which cannot be effectively handled by a dust bowl, which needs to be emptied every time it is near full. Once filled, a dust bowl is sending the snow and debris right down into the filter housing. [continue reading] Snow Part 09: Ingestive Precleaners: Dust Bowls
The Series 9000 is the only real-world choice for SNOW. [continue reading] Snow Part 10: Summary – Series 9000 is best for snow
Wayne, an Aussie known as “Nugget” on the HummerXClub forum, has just returned from a 6,200 km (3853 miles) trip through the Australian Outback. His trip included 1,500 km (932 miles) of dirt and he was full of praise for the excellent performance he got out of his Sy-Klone Series 9000.

The Series 9000 Air Precleaners and XLR Powered Precleaners overcome several problems inherent in competing technologies. Many other precleaner technologies INGEST the dirt – they collect debris and then must be manually emptied or cleaned. Some are supposed to empty the dirt, but this may not happen under less than ideal conditions. Sy-Klone precleaners are EJECTIVE – the debris is never collected in the precleaner in the first place.

In this case study, several Caterpillar mining haul trucks achieved unprecedented filter life, up to 2000 hours without loss of power or clogging.
NOTE: At the end of the case study, the filters lasted 2,000 hours without blow-out or filter change. As of January 2014, the filters have now reached 3,000 hours! [continue reading] Series 9000 Case Study: IN0077 Kit Replaces Tube Bodies, Filter Life Extended to 3000 hours
