Magnom magnetic filtration entered F1 with Ferrari back in 2004
Following exhaustive testing, a development of this innovative magnetic filtration was fitted to the F1 cars of Michel Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello, for the first race of the season in Australia…
The two Ferrari drivers finished 1 & 2 and Michel Schumacher went on to win the world title, for the first time using Magnom Technology in the Ferrari F1 car.
It being so important to harness new technology, from the outset…Ferrari insisted on exclusivity for the new Magnom technology for a minimum of 5 years.
The Magnom magnetic filtration was fitted to the Ferrari F1 cars power units, and uniquely, was fitted ‘pre-pump’ for the first time, protecting the oil pump its self as well as the system as a whole.
Ongoing evaluation and metallurgy analysis proved the value of the Magnom magnetic technology to the team.
Ferrari also congratulated the Magnom team, saying “Congratulations in winning your first F1 Grand Prix &F1 constructors title with the team first time out”… a long term relationship followed, with a number of development iterations of the innovative Magnom technology being used by Ferrari each season.
This was to be the start of a number of F1 relationships over the years, and has resulted in the lessons learned from developments in F1, to Magnom evolving their designs to optimise their products performance in hydraulic and lubrication applications, and has seen development of the first and only bi-directional hi-pressure in-line filtration in the world, which is now being used by numerous OEM’s such as JCB…
With their presence in high performance motor sport, Magnom has gone from strength to strength, Proving the value of their technology in a wide variety of applications world wide.
