  • Publication number: 20190351361
    Abstract: A filter element for an air filter has a filter bellows with a filter medium folded multiple times. A recess is disposed in the filter bellows and is designed to receive a guiding rib of the air filter. The recess is curved at least in sections thereof along a length extension of the recess. The air filter has a housing and a guiding rib, wherein the filter element is arranged at least partially in the housing and the guiding rib is immersed at least partially in the recess of the filter element. In a method for producing the filter element, the recess in the filter bellows is formed with a computer-assisted separation method that forms the recess to be curved at least in sections thereof.

  • Patent number: 9586165
    Abstract: An air filter has a filter housing and a filter element inserted in the interior of the filter housing. The filter element has an inflow surface and an outflow surface and a filter medium that extends between inflow and outflow surfaces. The filter element has a circumferentially extending seal arranged in the area of the inflow surface or outflow surface and interacting in the mounting position with the sealing surface of the filter housing to separate inlet and outlet of the air filter. A support device clamps the filter element transversely to the insertion direction in the filter housing by a transverse clamping action in a support area that is spaced from the seal. The transverse clamping action results by an insertion movement of the filter element into the filter housing by interaction of the filter element with inner sides of the filter housing.

  • Patent number: 9586167
    Abstract: A flat filter element to be mounted in a filter housing has an inflow surface and an outflow surface downstream of the inflow surface in a flow-through direction. A filter medium extend between the inflow surface and the outflow surface. A sealing section extends circumferentially relative to the flow-through direction. A seal fastened to or interacting with the sealing section is provided, wherein the seal, when the flat filter element is mounted in a filter housing, separates an inlet of the filter housing for air to be purified from an outlet of the filter housing for purified air. A first functional element section is arranged on at least one circumferential side of the filter medium so as to be spaced apart from the circumferentially extending sealing section. The first functional element section is attached to a lateral strip and the lateral strip is attached to the filter medium.

  • Patent number: 9586168
    Abstract: A flat filter element has a filter medium and a sealing section that seals the flat filter element relative to a filter housing. A support element section is arranged on a circumferential side of the filter medium outside of the sealing section and supports the flat filter element relative to an inner side of the filter housing, wherein the support element section projects past the filter element in at least one direction. The filter housing has a mounting opening through which the flat filter element is inserted into the interior where the flat filter element is arranged such that the inlet is separated from the outlet of the filter housing. A projection arranged on an inner side of the filter housing supports under mechanical tension the support element section of the flat filter element in a mounting position of the flat filter element in the interior.

  • Patent number: 9062638
    Abstract: A filter element for filtering fluids has a support tube having a circumferential wall provided with passages for a fluid. A hollow elongate filter medium is arranged axially on the support tube. The passages are adapted in regard to size; distribution; or size and distribution to a fluidic configuration of the filter element such that non-uniform fluid flows that exist in operation of the filter element upstream of the support tube are compensated. The filter element is used in particular in air filters for internal combustion engines.
