    Abstract: A filter insert for a filter for filtering a fluid having] an inflow surface, and outflow surface, and a main throughflow direction. A filter body of the insert has a filter medium with pleats forming a pleated bellows, are arranged perpendicular to the main throughflow direction. A first number of the pleat edges form the outflow surface and a second number of the pleat edges on a pre-filtration side of the filtration body form the outflow surface. A first seal prevents the fluid from overflowing from the pre-filtration side to the post-filtration on a surface formed by a first number of of end face of the pleats. A second seal prevents the fluid from overflowing from the pre-filtration side to the post-filtration side on a surface formed by a second number of end faces of the pleats.

  • Patent number: 10105626
    Abstract: A sealing device (24) of a filter system (10) for filtering fluids, in particular of a motor vehicle, with a sealing ring (26) is described. The sealing ring (26) serves to seal a pipe (16), in particular a central pipe of a filter housing (12), that penetrates through a flange-sided opening (18) of an end plate (20), in particular of an end element of a filter element (14). The sealing ring (26) features a central section (58) that connects it with the end plate (20). The sealing ring (26) features in its axial direction on both sides of the central section (58) elastic sealing sections (60, 62) which cause each a reduction of the inner diameter of the sealing ring (26) compared with the central section (58).
