UFI Filters Group offers a comprehensive range of products in both the Original Equipment and Aftermarket sectors for the most popular compact SUVs produced by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.
Indeed, UFI has developed a fuel filter for the Nissan Qashqai and the Renault Kadjar that meets all the technical requirements of the latest-generation engines, such as the compact 1.5-litre dCi model.
UFI’s complete module features a robust steel body, which houses the Deep Filtration Media filter element; this exclusive depth septum produced by the Group ensures extremely high levels of filtration, as well as excellent water-diesel fuel separation.
The filter technology “communicates” directly with the electronics of the car: indeed, the product includes a group sensor, into which a series of electronic devices are integrated. These perform three key functions:
- they measure the temperature of the fuel;
- they warm the fuel in low temperature conditions, in order to melt the paraffin;
- they signal the level of water separated from the diesel fuel in the collection chamber.
It is easy to bleed the residues using the valve located on the bottom of the cap, thus facilitating operations in the workshop. The service includes the replacement of the complete module – comprising the filter and the group sensor – and this can be ordered from the UFI and SOFIMA Aftermarket catalogues with codes 55.517.00 and S 5517 GC.
