The weight and flow of this module from Hengst have been optimised to help increase the overall efficiency of the engine
Hengst, the Münster-based leading specialist for filtration and fluid management, has developed a multifunctional oil filter module for the new VW EA288 Evo 4-cylinder diesel engines from Volkswagen. The weight and flow of this module from Hengst have been optimised to help increase the overall efficiency of the engine. The engine will first be installed as a longitudinal engine in vehicles from Audi. Production of the Hengst´s oil filter module for longitudinal engines started in the third quarter of 2018. The filtration specialist will also supply filter modules for transverse engines, with series production planned to start in 2019.
Hengst has been a system and development partner of the automotive industry for 60 years. Filters and filter systems, which were developed for the original equipment market, will later be offered on the aftermarket with identical designs. The oil filter element for the new-generation engine from VW will also become available on the independent aftermarket in the course of the next year.
The module has an integrated oil drain valve, whereas the internal support frame of the inbuilt filter has been reinforced to withstand very high pressures. The oil filter element is also patent protected. A sealing lock is integrated to prevent the wrong filter being installed.
Hengst SE supplies products, systems and concepts for all aspects of filtration and fluid management - from development to high-tech production. The company is a development partner and OEM supplier for the international automotive and motor industry. State-of-the-art filtration concepts from Hengst are also used widely in many other everyday and not-so-everyday applications.
The agricultural sector, the navy, and manufacturers of cleaning equipment and electric tools for private or professional use rely on custom-tailored solutions from Hengst. The company´s filter systems can be found in an ever-growing number of devices - from household vacuum cleaners to professional electric tools to modern robots.
