PRODUCT IN FOCUS: Centri Air Precleaners

EPE has sold Centri® Air PreCleaners, sourced direct from the manufacturer, for more than 35 years. These very useful add-ons to an engine’s air intake allow service intervals for air cleaners to be extended.

With intake sizes ranging from the 2-inch EX20 model up to the new 10-inch EX100, Centri certainly has a multitude of different air flows covered.

The Centri product comes with a lifetime guarantee against mechanical failure.

How CENTRI® Air PreCleaners Work


  1. Dirty air enters the CENTRI®, which is clamped on to your equipment’s air intake
  2. Specially-designed vanes, curved and angled to precisely direct air flow, move the dirty air toward the stainless steel impeller
  3. The dynamically balanced, one-piece impeller (CENTRI®’s only moving part) creates a tornado inside the housing
  4. The centrifugal force of the tornado expels particles that are heavier than air, such as chaff, dust, water and other dirt, out the discharge louvre
  5. Cleaned air enters the engine intake pipe and the filter element has only very light particles left to remove
