Bosch has launched its new Filter+pro cabin filter for workshops to offer their customers additional health protection for the vehicle occupants.
This new cabin filter is the successor of the well-proven Bosch Filter+, separating allergens and pollen, fine dust, bacteria and harmful gases. In addition, the improved Filter+pro generation is also highly effective against viruses and mold.
By end of 2023, Bosch says the Filter+pro will completely substitute its predecessor within the range.
The three coordinated filter layers of the Filter+pro effectively reduce the amount of pollutants inside the cabin. A special antimicrobial layer works against viruses and bacteria. It also prevents the growth of mold and binds both allergens and pollen in the filter fleece.
The activated carbon layer neutralises harmful and foul-smelling gases. Finally, an ultrafine microfiber layer separates more than 98 per cent of all fine dust and soot particles, according to Bosch. Moreover, the packaging clearly highlights the functions and benefits of the new Filter+pro for workshop customers.
Besides improved air quality, Bosch says its cabin filters also provide for clear safety benefits. They reduce the formation of deposits on the windshield, which could result in dazzling effects. In addition, the windows fog up less. They also reduce the risk of allergic reactions – such as sneezing – which could lead to dangerous situations if they occur while driving. Another advantage: The reduction of deposits on the fan and air conditioning system supports their functionality.
To ensure the filter effectiveness, Bosch recommends replacing cabin filters every 15,000 kilometres or at least once a year. Cabin filters should ideally be replaced in spring prior to the pollen and hay fever seasons. For this purpose, Bosch provides a wide range of filters for almost any customer demand reaching from standard filters and activated carbon filters through to Filter+pro.
The Bosch range features a market coverage of 96 per cent regarding the European vehicle market. This allows workshops to find a suitable filter for almost all customer vehicles. The installation instructions included help workshops easing the filter replacement.
