Hyundai Tucson was last year not only the best selling car over all in Ireland, but also the best selling C-segment SUV right across Europe. It is an efficient and reliable performer and part of this is down to the guaranteed protection provided by UFI Filters filtration systems, which are fitted as original equipment on the Tucson.   


UFI Filters supply as original equipment the diesel filtration system for the 1.6 CRDi engine of the new Tucson and also for the mild hybrid version. Compared to the previous version, the advantages of this new module are the integration of multiple functions and the lightness of the element given by the plastic materials and the cartridge in ecological material. Water presence sensor, ceramic material heater and pressure sensor are located within the same group sensor unit, located on the top of the filter. This allows for greater efficiency of the heat exchange.

The filter cartridge has high water separation capacity, produced according to the exclusive material in FormulaUFI.Stratiflex which separates the water particles based on the coalescence principle. Reinforced with an internal hydrophobic mesh, the filter blocks the water droplets marking them fall to the bottom of the module tank, where there is a draining plug. The water presence sensor signals precisely when it is time to empty the tank.

For the aftermarket, the UFI module for Tucson model year 2015 to 2021 comprises an aluminium head with pressure sensor and a heater, while the filter body is equipped with a water presence sensor. This is all supplied inside a retainer to protect the system in an impact. The steel filter element encloses a dual-stage filtration system, made of FormulaUFI.Stratiflex: a first barrier for impurities and water formed by a cellulose-based media, a second made of hydrophobic mesh to eliminate residual water particles.

The diesel filter for Hyundai Tucson second generation is available in the aftermarket catalogue with the UFI brand, under the code 24.123.00 and with the brand SOFIMA, under the code S 4123 NR. 

The introduction of the eco-cartridge for Tucson last generation is now under development.
