Snow Part 01: The Problem with Precleaners in the Snow

Sy-Klone often gets many questions about the use of the Series 9000 in snow conditions.  Most OEMs will tell you that the Series 9000 is the ONLY precleaner to use in snow conditions because it doesn’t suffer the same fate as the metal competitors.

Snow Part 02: Ejective Precleaners – The Prescreen

Integrated permanent prescreens clog quickly and ice over with wet driving snow, choking off air flow to the engine. (Turbo II, Turbo III, O’Cautro, Klean Air) [continue reading] Snow Part 02: Ejective Precleaners – The Prescreen

Snow Part 03: Ejective Precleaners – Stratification of Debris Fields

Through patented design and processes, the Series 9000 is able to stratify the snow within the precleaner, allowing it to optimize the FULL LENGTH of the ejection slot for ejection of snow.  This allows the Series 9000 to process large amounts of snow without clogging or bogging down.  No other precleaner does this!

Snow Part 04: Ejective Precleaners – Maintaining Operating Efficiency

Operating efficiency –We have incorporated ingenious compression technology into the Series 9000 dome. Patented design and processes allow the precleaner to recapture lost energy, maintaining rotor speed and efficiency when ejecting large quantities of snow/ice/rain. No other precleaner does this! [continue reading] Snow Part 04: Ejective Precleaners – Maintaining Operating Efficiency

Snow Part 05: Ejective Precleaners – Sealed Bearings in our Patented Bearing Cavity

The Series 9000 is the only precleaner in the world today that has a patented sealed protected bearing cavity and a 0.04% warranty claim rate. Our bearings don’t fail! [continue reading] Snow Part 05: Ejective Precleaners – Sealed Bearings in our Patented Bearing Cavity

Snow Part 06: Ingestive Precleaner Technologies

Ingestive Precleaners draw the debris-laden air into themselves for particle separation. When this debris is SNOW, many of these technologies fail. Series 9000 avoids all the problems of ingestive technologies by ejecting rather than internalizing the snow. [continue reading] Snow Part 06: Ingestive Precleaner Technologies

Snow Part 07: Ingestive Precleaners: Tangential Air Filter Housing

Tangential Air Filter Housings pull snow into the filter housing. Frozen dump valves cannot seal properly and particle separation efficiency is lost. Saturated air filters can quickly blind over when frozen, starving the engine of air. [continue reading] Snow Part 07: Ingestive Precleaners: Tangential Air Filter Housing

Snow Part 08: Ingestive Precleaners: Tube Body / Dona Cone

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. [continue reading] Snow Part 08: Ingestive Precleaners: Tube Body / Dona Cone

Snow Part 09: Ingestive Precleaners: Dust Bowls

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
