SPRINT FILTER BRIEF HISTORY
Established in 1952, Sprint Filter began production of innovative, high-performance air filters and intake systems, working together with the best manufacturers of supply systems and top teams. Constant research and development of new filtering fabrics and intake systems have been at the heart of Sprint Filter products for over 65 years. Thanks to this experience, Sprint Filter can meet all types of requirements; from a simple performance filter replacing the OEM unit, to entire intake systems utilising carbon fibre, fiberglass and plastics. Filtering elements manufactured from unique micro-calibrated polyester fabrics are incorporated into every Sprint Filter design.
INNOVATIVE FILTERING MEDIA
Sprint Filter with P08 has reinvented the concept of a special air filter. Unlike materials like cotton which fiber breaks easily or sponge that is inconsistent under pressure but an innovative polyester material that allows an air passage to be constant and calibrated. With the subsequent two patented waterproof air filters P037 and P08F1-85, Sprint Filter has allowed the use of a performance air filter even in dusty conditions (P037) and to reach unthinkable results for any other manufacturer of performance air filters with same filtering power (P08F1-85).
Sprint Filter P08 is the standard material for OEM replacement filters that offers the best filtration but better flow than competing products. The many results on the test bench show that Sprint Filter is the best solution in order to get the right amount of air in a constant way. This is achieved thanks to optimization of the surfaces of any air filter that Sprint Filter operates on every original air box. It follows the maximum attainable surface: more AIR, more POWER, more FILTRATION.
EXPERIENCED IN RACES
Sprint Filter elements were born in races. Top Racing Teams of World Championships like WTCR, TCR Series, MotoGP, Moto3, SBK, Supersport are constantly using P08, P037 and P08F1-85 air filters. Sprint Filter develops every day new solutions with best racing Teams in the World in searching of maximum and minimum power loss. From many years in a row Sprint Filter is the technical supplier of all Honda Civic Type-R TCR in the World and from the 2019 is the Official supplier also of all Alfa Romeo Giulietta WTCand also of another Factory Racing Team. In the TCR Series Honda, Alfa Romeo and another one brand have homologated the Sprint Filter KD1TCR intake, same as available for all our final customers. Because Sprint Filter sells to end users same products as used in Racing.
SPRINT FILTER TECHNOLOGY COMPARED TO COTTON GAUZE
Current production vehicles are typically equipped with paper filters, while performance vehicles used oil-soaked cotton gauze or sponge foam. An air filter job is to guarantee good air flow while preventing significant particles from ending up in the engine. These two operations naturally oppose each other and that is where Sprint Filters’ polyester filtering fabric takes a leap above the rest. The Sprint Filter polyester fabrics are extremely permeable, stable and are not affected by folding during construction. Cotton filters, on the other hand, have a weaving that depends on the overlapping of numerous layers, leading to poor flow in some areas and ineffective filtration in others. Sprint Filter P08, P037 and P08F1-85 air filters are totally different from others. There isn't a filter in the world built with similar technology. The membrane filter consists of a fabric of polyester threads starting from ø 22 microns (P08F1-85). What's more, the filtering surface is doubled than any other special filter. Here's an close up shot of the cotton filter and Sprint Filter P08 polyester in comparison.
ESSENTIALLY MAINTENANCE FREE
Sprint Filter air filter cleaning procedure is straightforward and quick: use an air jet, in the opposite direction of suction, to remove most of the debris collected. No washing or drying is necessary, so the filter can be refitted immediately. Maintenance of the air filter is essential for the protection, care, and efficiency of the engine. A clean and undamaged filter will always ensure the correct quantity of clean air for the air box. Another air filter maintenance aspect is how long it takes to clean. Apart from the time required for disassembly and reassembly, cotton and sponge air filters demand downtime for washing, drying and oiling the filtering element, none of these operations are required with a Sprint Filter air filter.
Sprint Filter P08, P037 and P08F1-85 air filters, if maintained in the correct way, will last for the entire life of the car and will no longer be necessary to replace the original air filter. Attached is the comparison of a paper OEM air filter vs Sprint Filter P08 air filter. As you can see, the paper filters are dirty and the folds are in a irregular shape. So how can it assure you a constant air flow? However, Sprint filter P08, P037 and P08F1-85 polyester folds are constant and build in a solid construction resulting in stable and efficient air flow.
