  • Patent number: 10711736
    Abstract: An air cleaner assembly (100) for an internal combustion engine, has a housing (10) with at least one intake air inlet and at least one intake air outlet (14) formed in the housing wall (18) for supplying an intake air to the internal combustion engine, at least one filter element disposed within the housing (10) for filtering the intake air, separating a rough air side from a clean air side inside the housing (10), and at least one flow straightener insert (20) comprising a body structure (40) with a hydrocarbon absorbing medium (30) disposed at the clean air side of the filter element. The at least one outlet (14) accommodates the at least one flow straightener insert (20).

  • Patent number: 10711818
    Abstract: An enforced one-time snap connection system mounts a first component to a second component. The first component has a circumferentially extending groove formed into an exterior surface. The second component has an annular mounting adapter having an internal bore. An annular retainer is secured on an end of the second component at the internal bore, the annular retainer includes an axially extending annular portion having a radially inwardly projecting annular locking rib received into the circumferentially extending groove during installation of the first component into the second component such that the annular locking rib or locking tabs and/or the circumferentially extending groove are critically damaged or destroyed if the first component is removed from the second component, thereby preventing re-assembly and re-locking of the components together again.

  • Patent number: 10369505
    Abstract: An air filter system for a motor vehicle includes a common housing, first and second D-shaped filter elements and a common cover. The common housing defines a first airflow chamber extending between a first inlet duct and a first outlet duct and a second airflow chamber extending between a second inlet duct and a second outlet duct. The first airflow chamber is fluidly separated from the second airflow chamber. The first D-shaped filter element is disposed in the first airflow chamber for filtering air passing through the first airflow chamber. The second D-shaped filter element is disposed in the second airflow chamber for filtering air passing through the second airflow chamber. The common cover is secured to the housing and closes the first airflow chamber and the second airflow chamber.

  • Patent number: 9897049
    Abstract: An air intake tract with a hydrocarbon adsorber is provided for adsorbing hydrocarbons of a motor vehicle. The hydrocarbon adsorber includes at least one first layer constructed of a hydrocarbon adsorbing material. Optionally, one or more stacked layers are provided including at least an uppermost layer and at least one intermediate layer. The at least one first layer includes a solid shape within an outer boundary and is adapted for sonic welding onto an interior of the air intake tract. The uppermost layer and any intermediate layers include an opening such that the uppermost layer provides access for a sonic welding tool from an upper side of the subassembly to the at least one first layer through the opening.
