How the Kinser Air Filter Works
The air filter’s primary purpose is to supply clean air to the engine, however the air flow and filtration demands placed on a filter during normal operation are far less than the demands placed on the same filter in a high performance application. Higher RPMs for longer periods of time and harsher operating environments, like the dust and grime of a dirt track, require increased airflow and filtration efficiency.
The best way to illustrate the importance of air to an engine’s performance is to look at one of the most impressive engines in existence, the human body. Envision a human subject using a straw to breathe through while completing a few simple tasks. The first task is to walk from one end of the hallway to the other. For most individuals, the amount of air supplied through the straw is enough to accomplish this task. Now let’s require the same individual to sprint a mile breathing through the same straw. The increased amount of energy required to successfully complete this task will make it very difficult, if not impossible for the individual to complete the task at peak performance. In fact, it is very likely we’ll find our subject passed out on the side of the road.
The task of supplying air to the engine of an automobile
during typical driving conditions can be compared to the task of supplying
air to the human body as it walks from one end of the hall to the other.
Little air is required to successfully complete the task. The task of
supplying air to an engine powering a high performance race car can be
compared to the task of supplying air to the human body while it sprints one
mile. A significant amount of air is required to complete the task at peak
Problem-Paper Filters Just Don't Stand Up
Kinser Air Filter system brings to advanced racing technology that dirt track racers like J.J. Yeley, Travis Rilat and Critter Malone have used on their cars for many years now. Kinser Air Filters employ a major advancement in air filtration technology—open cell filter foam. Foam air filters combine great airflow capacity with huge dust holding capacity that can capture even the smallest of particles. Additionally these foam filters are much easier to maintain since they can even be washed in soap and water. In early testing, competitors have gained as much as an additional 200 RPMs after installing the Kinser Air Filter System.
