UFI Filters Group confirms its position as sole diesel filtration supplier for SAME Deutz-Fahr. The Italian group, one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of agricultural machinery, has chosen UFI diesel filters and heat exchangers for its new FARMotion engines.
In particular, the products of the UFI Green Farm range, the GF100 pre-filter and filter, and the GF1000 pre-filter are mounted on applications with FARMotion engines. The new compact powertrains offer optimal integration with the agricultural machine, optimised consumption and noise values, boosted productivity and comfort levels.
The 3- and 4-cylinder FARMotion engines are available in EU Stage IIIB and EU Stage IV/US-EPA Tier 4 Final certified configurations, and now EU Stage V too. They’re fitted on a variety of SAME Deutz-Fahr applications such as the flagship Explorer model, equipped with a UFI GF100 filter and pre-filter, or Deutz-Fahr Series 6, Series 7 and Series 8 that apply the GF1000 pre-filter.
UFI Filters: efficiency for agriculture
The primary filters (pre-filters) GF100 and GF1000 ensure the fundamental function of separating water from diesel, using filter media developed according to the exclusive FormulaUFI.H2O technology that guarantees maximum filtering efficiency on contaminants from 30 to 10 µm. The secondary filter is for fine filtration and is developed according to the FormulaUFI.CELL technology to ensure maximum filtering efficiency at 4 µm. Tested and validated in collaboration with SAME, they guarantee up to 1,000 hours of work.
The main advantages of the Green Farm filter range are its compact dimensions and the firm focus on reducing the environmental impact of worn components during the maintenance and disposal phases.
Compared with the previous spin-on filters, this complete model allows only the filtering element to be replaced, thus significantly reducing metal waste. Furthermore, the elements are made with infrared welding, without using any glue. The patented coupling ensures safer and cleaner maintenance for the operator, additionally avoiding diesel seepage.
