CABIN AIR FILTER

THE ULTIMATE SUBARU OUTBACK CABIN AIR-PURIFYING EXPERIENCE

 The Subaru Outback cabin air filter features a sophisticated multi-stage Carbon air purification system to protect comprehensively against various pollutants and odours. This ensures that you and your passengers can enjoy cleaner and fresher air, promoting a healthier and more comfortable driving experience. Here’s how the filtration system works.

Activated Carbon Material

Activated carbon, known for its excellent adsorption properties, is the primary component of the filtration system. Its porous structure and large surface area allow it to effectively capture and trap pollutants, odours, and harmful gases from the air.

Multiple layers

The Subaru Outback cabin air filter is not just a single activated carbon layer. It consists of multiple layers of this material arranged in a specific sequence to optimise filtration efficiency. Each layer is designed to target different types and sizes of contaminants, ensuring that the air entering the vehicle’s interior is thoroughly cleaned and purified.

Pollutant Removal and Odour control

As air passes through the Subaru Outback cabin air filter, the activated carbon layers capture pollutants such as dust, pollen, mould spores, bacteria, exhaust fumes, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The carbon’s porous structure traps these particles, preventing them from circulating within the vehicle’s cabin. The activated carbon in the Subaru Outback pollen filter doesn’t just capture pollutants. It also adsorbs odorous molecules from the air, neutralising unpleasant smells and ensuring a fresher interior environment. Thus, occupants have a healthier and more comfortable driving experience.

Enhanced Seal Design

Unlike standard cabin air filters, which may have gaps or inadequate seals around the edges and housing, the Subaru Outback Cabin Air Filter is precisely engineered to provide a better seal. This is achieved using an acrylic support base, which increases the filter’s rigidity and helps it maintain a tight seal within the filter housing.

       Pre-filter Carbon Stage

This is the first filtration layer, consisting of a 15 mm thick pre-filter activated carbon filter sponge layer. It traps larger particles such as pollen, dust, mites, fungus spores, pet hair, and organic and inorganic material. Additionally, it absorbs noxious odours and pollutants, serving as the initial defence against contamination.

2nd and 3rd Carbon Stages

The second and third layers are each over 4 mm thick and composed of progressively finer carbon filter material. These layers target smaller particles such as bacteria, airborne heavy metals, harmful gases, diesel exhaust particulates, and chemicals. They further enhance the filtration process by trapping and absorbing these hazardous contaminants.

Replace Yearly

For optimal performance of your Subaru Outback Cabin Air Filter, it’s recommended that you replace the filter annually or more frequently in severe conditions. This regular maintenance is essential, as the micropores of the activated carbon can gradually lose their effectiveness when saturated with contaminants. By adhering to this recommendation, you ensure that your air conditioning system operates at its peak and provides the best possible protection against pollution.

About our filters and things to note before ordering
Origin

Your Subaru Outback cabin air filter is proudly made and designed in Australia, ensuring high-quality standards and supporting local manufacturing.
