Bosch Introduces HEPA Premium Cabin Air Filter Line for Passenger Vehicles
Robert Bosch LLC has launched a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) premium cabin air filter line. The new HEPA line includes 58 SKUs covering 110 million vehicles in operation in the U.S. and Canada.
Bosch says a HEPA cabin air filter offers advantages over a non-HEPA filter including protection against finer microscopic particles of dust, allergens, harmful gasses and bacteria to provide the cleanest air possible inside the vehicle. It also reduces deposits of these substances on heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) components to promote optimum performance and reduce the risk of costly repairs
Benefits of Bosch HEPA premium cabin air filters include:
- triple-layer construction that includes a support layer, the HEPA layer and a static cotton layer that together provide outstanding efficiency in trapping more particles and dust than double layer filter designs;
- a melt-blown electrostatic HEPA layer made with very dense media that provides greater particle-trapping capabilities than non-HEPA cabin air filters;
- efficiency of 99.97% at 0.3 microns to provide the cleanest air possible; and
- structural ribs that provide additional stability and durability for a stronger cabin air filter.
Bosch says its HEPA premium cabin air filters are designed and tested to meet high efficiency particulate air standards based on test standard ASTM D2986 and have an efficiency rating of 99.97% at 0.3 microns.
Most Bosch HEPA premium cabin air filters can be replaced in 15-20 minutes. Bosch recommends replacing the cabin air filter every 12,000 miles or at the manufacturer’s suggested change interval as indicated in the vehicle owner’s manual.
