Construction News & Case Studies
With expensive heavy equipment, nothing is more important than maximizing UPTIME. Construction applications produce large amounts of dirt & debris which prematurely clogs the air filter. Most machines come equipped with a rain cap, providing no precleaning at all, or a dust bowl which adds huge hidden maintenance costs. See how self-cleaning Sy-Klone products can INCREASE UPTIME and REDUCE COSTS with our Online Savings Calculators.

Low-cost construction machines intake systems are designed to be high maintenance
Construction machines are extremely price competitive. Their relatively low cost coupled with strong competition forces the Manufacturer to weigh between quality components and costs. With few exceptions the ultimate determiner of what goes on a machine is cost. For this reason, options that would decrease your cost of maintenance on the machine are high priced options. The Series 9000 is the one of the most proactive cost savings devices that you can put on a new machine. By reducing the amount of silica allowed into the engine, you prolong engine wear. By reducing the amount of large and small debris getting into your filter housing you extend your filter life.
Not all precleaners do what they advertise
Companies that specialize in filters sell precleaners to help their filter sales. For this reason not all precleaners do what they advertise. In many cases they prematurely dirty the filter. By forcing the operator to dump a “Dust Bowl” every day, the filter manufacturer is assured by human nature that this won’t happen and that the consequence will be a clogged filter media and a subsequent filter sale. Who is being fooled here? Just because the machine is relatively inexpensive does not mean that the owner wants to spend extra money in engine repairs or filter replacements. Fight back with the Series 9000 Precleaner.
Price sensitivity ultimately drives the manufacturers to forgo install a dump valve filter housing or a dust bowl type precleaner on the machine. The dust bowl type precleaner is the most costly device that you can place on an intake pipe. When the “Dust Bowl” is full of debris, it provides the debris which passes to the filter when the machine is started.
The labor to dump the “Dust bowl” every 8 hours of run time ultimately cost the owner thousands of dollars all by itself. Sy-Klone developed the Cost Savings Calculator so that machine owners could assess for themselves the potential value of replacing their current precleaner or rain cap with a Series 9000 Precleaner. The owner knows best how he will run and maintain his equipment, the calculator allows for real time assessment of actual maintenance patterns to determine cost savings.
Not only engines deserve clean air; YOUR OPERATOR does too!
