Breather Filter by Hastings®. The crankcase ventilation system channels harmful crankcase vapors to the air intake so they can be burned along with the air/fuel mixture. The Crankcase Breather Filter filters the air that is drawn through the crankcase to mix with the vapors.
- Properly filters air drawn through the crankcase ventilation system
- Prevents dirt and abrasives from damaging the engine
- Direct replacement
- Provides long lasting durability
Crankcase vapors include oil vapor, combustion blowby, and moisture. These gases must be allowed to escape from the crankcase or pressure could build up causing gaskets and seals to fail resulting in leaks, and to prevent oil contamination which could reduce the oil’s effectiveness and usable lifespan. However, because these gases contains large amounts of hydrocarbons and other gases, they cannot be released into the atmosphere. The crankcase ventilation system draws air through the crankcase and channels the air and vapors into the intake air stream, where they can be added to the air/fuel mixture and burned. The Hastings Crankcase Breather Filter will ensure only clean air is drawn into the system for superior engine protection.
