Designed for the ever-changing automotive industry, these filters use multi-layer filter media, also known as "fleece," made from melt-blown superfine fibers with a compressed cellulose substrate layer, a filter system already used by Mercedez-Benz as the world's first fleece oil filter, and as a fleece air filter in the Audi A8. The filter can improve current filtration standards from 85-99 percent to 95-99.9 percent, with ultra-small particles measuring between three and five microns.

The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
