The new universal power steering filter helps deliver a level of filtration designed to help shops protect their repair, while significantly reduces warranty claims on pumps, racks, and gears.
According to Tony Edwards, VP Business Development, Plews & Edelmann:
“The industry breakthrough behind the new patent-pending Edelmann Elite power steering filter is an innovative design that features interchangeable connectors for precise fitment and flow rates on 3/8″, 1/2″, and 5/8″ ID power steering hoses.
“This allows shops to be ready for service on over 99% of import and domestic makes and models that come into their facility. The filter is also a game-changer for distributors and parts stores because it will help reduce inventory hassles and unnecessary parts returns for incorrect filter sizes.”
Reduces warranty claims, protects the repair
The dual filtration technology that it incorporates provides a high-capacity flow while preventing contamination. The filter eliminates that risk by easily capturing and removing metallic and non-metallic debris from the fluid before it enters the power steering pump.
The Edelmann Elite power steering filter includes an oversized magnet that captures any additional metal fragments into an anodized aircraft aluminum body and features a built-in safety bypass to ensure uninhibited flow.
Compact, serviceable design
Edwards noted, “Before the introduction of the Edelmann Elite power steering filter, service technicians found that, in many applications, typical replacement filters were too large for the fitment area and difficult to install.
“Our new design is smaller and fits into more areas, while still delivering a high-capacity flow. The filter is also serviceable, so it can be cleaned and reused.”
