? Snorkels are usually the first accessories ever fitted to a four-wheel drive system. They aid in deep water crossings and provide trouble-free air induction when submerged in the dust. Air is cooler and cleaner at the roof level than air flowing through the hood, which means lower fuel consumption and less clogging of air filters. These are important factors, especially when driving in four-wheel drive on dry, dusty roads.
? 4?4 equipped Airtec Snorkels are industry leaders in design and function. All of our snorkels are designed to complement the shape of the vehicle, maximize airflow and minimize air noise and obstruction of vision. The snorkel body is manufactured with a smooth inner wall, hard corners are avoided in all designs, which reduces air turbulence and allows a constant uninterrupted flow of air to the motor.
All Airtec snorkels are perfectly designed to deliver the correct volume of air or better to the engine, which can improve the efficiency of your engine.
? Rainwater droplets entering the air ram of an Airtec snorkel are collected at the rear of the curved inner surface, collect around the base of the air ram, and disperse through the drainage holes.
When small droplets of rainwater enter the snorkel body, they are atomized at the air filter. Finally, the last line of defense is the original water drain in the vehicle’s air filter unit.
? Airtec snorkels are designed and manufactured in Australia from Australian plastic materials with a combination of special additives and strong bonding processes. The result is a product with strong physical properties and tough impact resistance. In colder temperatures, the true power of the Airtec snorkel becomes apparent. Some competitor snorkels are always weaker in the cold due to the way they are manufactured. A simple knock from an overhanging branch can crack the snorkel body, rendering it useless.
