    We draw attention to the fact that all values indicated are average values which do not always occur in specific cases of application. Our products are continually being further developed. Values, dimensions and weights can change as a result of this. Our specialized department will be pleased to offer you advice.

    We recommend to contact us concerning applications of our filters in areas governed by the EU Directive 94/9 EC (ATEX 95). The standard version can be used for liquids based on mineral oil (corresponding to the fluids in Group 2 of Directive 97/23 EC Article 9). If you consider to use other fluids please contact us for additional support.

    Subject to technical alteration without prior notice.

    10. Installation, operating and maintenance instructions
    10.1 Filter installation
    When installing the filter make sure that:
    a) Sufficient space is available to remove filter element and filter housing
    b) The mounting hole in the tank top is not excessively large, to ensure proper sealing,
    c) The filter is free of tension after installation, max. torque 7 Nm. Preferably the filter should be installed with the filter housing pointing downwards.
    10.2 Connecting the electrical pressure switch
    The electrical pressure switch is connected via connectors according to DIN 46247.
    10.3 When should the filter element be replaced??
    1 . Filters equipped with pressure gauge:
    When the dynamic pressure reaches 1.2 bar (red/green indication), the filter element must be replaced.
    2 . Filters equipped with pressure switch:
    During cold starts, the pressure switch may give a signal.If the electrical signal has not switched off after reaching operating temperature, the filter element must be replaced after the end of the shift.
    3 . Filters without indicator:
    The filter element should be replaced after trial run or flushing of the system.
    Afterwards follow instructions of manufacturer.
    4 . Please, always ensure that you have original MAHLE spareelements in stock: Disposable elements (MIc, Sm-x) cannot becleaned.
    10.4 Element replacement
    1 . Stop system and relieve filter from pressure.
    2 . Unscrew cover, turning counter-clockwise.
    3 . Remove filter housing and filter element by pulling upwards.
    4 . Remove filter element with a side-to-side motion.
    5 . Clean the filter housing with a suitable medium.
    6 . Check O-rings on filter cover and filter housing for damage. Replace, if necessary.
    7 . Make sure that the order number on the spare element corresponds to the order number of the filter name-plate.
    8 . Remove filter element from plastic bag and reassemble in reverse order (items 1 to 4).
    9 . Contaminated Mic elements can be reduced to ashes. Sm-x filter elements must be disposed in another way.
    10.5 Replacement of air breather filter element(plastic filter head only)
    • Push slightly on the lid and air breather element downwards(lid A).
    • Remove lid and element from the lower hook.
    • Pull out element from the lid.
    • Install new element in the lid.
    • Installation in reverse order.
    • Check correct position of the lid.

    Note: Filter element and air breather element should be always replaced at the same time.

    Subject to technical alteration without prior notice.
