IFT is a globally active company which operates in the development and production of high-quality, innovative blow-by filters. IFT’s blowby filters and their oil mist separators are absolutely zero-maintenance and have unlimited service life.
IFT’s technology is based on a newly-developed, innovative mode of operation whereby the effect of the Brownian motion of particles is exploited for purposes of coalescent particle separation. In conjunction with a range of patented features, this makes it possible to reduce the concentration of residual oil downstream of the blow-by filter to below 0.1 mg/m³m^3, combined with unrestricted filter service life and a consistent, minimum level of pressure drop.
IFT supplies global solutions which exploit the maximum potential for integration, such as filter concepts comprising integrated, membraneless pressure regulators, internal thermal insulation and crankcase ventilation and extraction systems, relying on supporting blowers, for large-scale engines.
These new, pioneering achievements in technology explain how the Company has succeeded in establishing itself as a worldwide leader in technology when it comes to crankcase venting systems and blowby filters.
The name IFT is a byword for quality and sustainability; the Company holds ISO 9001 certification and places a high priority on maximising environmental protection and the conservation of resources.
By now, many well-known engine manufacturers and plant operators have come to insist on the products of IFT GmbH, for their reliability.

The product portfolio of Liebherr components division comprises high-performing components such as diesel and gas engines, engine control units, axial piston pumps and motors, hydraulic cylinders, large diameter bearings, gearboxes, rope winches, switchgear, components for electronics and power electronics, software and injection systems. Liebherr also develops, designs and manufactures high-pressure pumps, injectors and pressure accumulators as well as micro-precision part
Within the framework of the MTZ conference, Liebherr presents its competence in the area of common rail systems for engines of up to six liters capacity per cylinder. The system is designed for operation under tough loads and conditions and is, therefore, ideal for the application in mining equipment, railroad technology and maritime applications. With precise multiple injection at pressures of up to 2,200 bar, constant performance and low emission values are guaranteed throughout the service life of the engine. Moreover, the integrated engine control unit ECU3 as an all-in-one system comprises all control functions, not only for the engine and the common rail system, but also for exhaust gas aftertreatment.

The UT99 AG – part of the ARTUM AG - develops and produces over 40 years high efficiently state-of-the-art oil mist separators for combustion engines, power plants and industry. As a filter specialist they have the Know-How and a product range from electrostatic filters for industrial solutions over coalescence filters for combustion engines to centrifugal filters for hydropower plants. The main focus at UT99 is the blow-by oil mist separation for engines in off-highway, marine and power plant applications. UT 99 can look back on field experience of over 15 years and now more than 10,000 delivered oil mist separators for crankcase ventilation for large engines. UT99 AG is the market leader in oil mist separators for crankcase ventilation of gas engines for use in chp systems with a power output of more than 600 kW. A residual amount of oil well below 1 mg/m³ blow-by can be ensured for the service life of the filter - and this with a very low pressure drop. The product range for combustion engines includes oil mist separators for closed (CCV) and open (OCV) crankcase ventilation. The actual products covers a range from 8,8 cfm (15 m³/h)up to 824 cfm (1.400 m³/h) nominal blow-by volume flow and can be used for engines from 50 kW up 100 MW. The UT99 oil mist separators were developed for the use on gas, diesel, heavy-fuel-oil (HFO) and dual-fuel (DF) engines.
Through the use of UT99 oil mist separators emissions and oil consumption can be reduced for all engines. Particularly in relation to the continuously increasing requirements of emission regulations, e.g. EPA Tier IV Final, the use of highly efficient oil mist separators is beneficial. The requirements for crankcase ventilation according to EPA RICE NESHAP are met. For gas engines the engine efficiency can be increased by up to 0.7 percentage points by switching to closed crankcase ventilation. UT99 oil mist separators prevent reliably and over the entire life negative side effects, such as sediments on turbochargers and filters have long service lives of up to 24.000 h.
UT99 AG is an innovative company which can implement customized requirements very efficiently. Unique demands and necessary approvals (e.g. UL, ATEX, Shock, Gastightness etc.) can be implemented promptly.
UT99 AG offers the world´s first and only oil mist separators for marine and offshore applications with a type approval by Germanischer Lloyd (GL) and RINA.
A large number of renowned engine manufacturers, ship yards and system manufacturers for a long time already rely on UT99 oil mist separators.
