Snorkels

From the Amazon to the Andies - from the Kalahari to the Kimberley - from the Sahara to the Simpson, four wheel drivers the world over have put their trust quality air Snorkel Systems.

Snorkels were born out of a need to protect 4WD engines from the hazards of dust and water commonly encountered in touring and off road applications.

Any Snorkel System that you are considering fitting to your vehicle should be designed by a company that has thoroughly researched, tested and tooled for each unique model of popular 4WD in Australia. Highfields Offroad offers this in our quality range of snorkels.

Any Snorkel Systems must be manufactured to the highest standards in durable, UV stable, cross linked polyethylene material and deliver a continuous and cooler supply of air for maximum engine performance. Each system should include quality fixtures and fittings that deliver superior sealing, OEM levels of presentation and long-term durability.

In addition, your choice of snorkel should be positively sealed in order to provide the engine with the ultimate in protection during river crossings and dusty desert driving conditions.

As well as the above, any high quality snorkel will have a Charge Air Ram that features a highly effective water separator system built right into the air ram in order to remove rain water from the incoming air stream - thus ensuring safe engine operation through even the most torrential tropical storms.

An added benefit of a high quality Charge Air Ram is that it can be rotated to any position. This means great peace of mind for those who plan to travel in cold or high altitude conditions where heavy snow falls are anticipated. By rotating the air ram to face away from the prevailing wind/direction of motion, the air ram delivers additional protection from the choking effects of snow build-up inside the air intake.

Dont Get Burnt!

 

Plastic ain't plastic

Not unlike the UV rating of sunblock creams on humans; the UV number applied to Plastics being exposed to the sun's UV rays, indicates the level of protection and consequently, life of the snorkel. In order to deliver the longevity of Snorkels that Highfields Offroad offers, the snorkels we provide are made with leading Australian polymer materials that exceed the Australian Standard for UV stabilisation of UV8, with ratings at UV20-UV24. The colour pigmentation process doesn’t cut any corners giving you an even, dense and bleed-free product. This contrasts markedly to other brand snorkels manufactured outside Australia. Even when these foreign snorkels use material sourced from quality major international suppliers, (such as Mobil Exxon), the finished product typically has a UV rating of only 8 - far short of the UV20 rating required for long snorkel service life.
