Intake precleaners


Maradyne turbo Precleaners protect valuable equipment and engines in demanding environments where dust, dirt and debris are a given. They feature a straight-through airflow pathway that creates less air intake restriction to optimize engine power. Engineered paddles create centrifugal force, ejecting up to 85 percent of contaminants through discharge ports.
