Looking for a mild steel snorkel for your vehicle? Jmax Engineering has you covered! Our mild steel snorkels are specifically designed to provide your engine with the cleanest air possible, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.

Constructed from high-quality mild steel, our snorkels are built to withstand even the most challenging conditions. Whether you’re tackling an off-road adventure or braving a dusty construction site, our snorkels will keep your engine running strong.
And because we know that every driver’s needs are different, we offer a variety of mild steel snorkel options to choose from. A mid-range material that gives you the same great look as stainless steel at a lower cost and offers better durability than PVC piping.

There are several advantages and drawbacks to utilising mild steel for your 4×4 snorkel. The malleability of mild steel allows you to adapt it to your vehicle frame. It is also highly ductile, making it easy to bend without being brittle or breaking. You can mould mild steel to your specific needs without losing any toughness. The disadvantage of mild steel is that it must be prepared for the elements, which takes time and effort.
Because of the lack of material and/or design, this item is highly susceptible to rust. It will need to be painted in and out of the snorkel or galvanised in order to maintain its sleek appearance.

Benefits of using Mild Steel for Snorkels

Mild steel is a versatile material that can be used in a variety of applications, and it’s an excellent choice for snorkels. It’s highly resistant to corrosion, so it will withstand the elements over time. And it’s also very strong, so you can rest assured that your snorkel will stay in place no matter what you’re using it for.

Mild steel is a type of low-carbon steel. Carbon steels are metals that have a small amount of carbon (less than 2.1 per cent) and improve the properties of pure iron. Carbon content varies depending on the steel’s needs. Low carbon steels contain carbon in the range of 0.05 to 0.25 per cent by weight.

There are numerous types of mild steel. However, all have carbon content within the aforementioned limits. Other substances are added to improve such characteristics as corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and tensile strength.
This is a good solution for individuals who don’t want to spend the money on a stainless steel 4×4 snorkel connection. Snorkels made of mild steel are more prone to rust over time, therefore they will need to be galvanised, which may make them less appealing.

Why Choose Snorkels from Jmax

We specialise in manufacturing high-performance snorkels that are built to last. A vehicle snorkel is in charge of feeding air into the engine to complete the fuel combustion cycle. To use a snorkel, you must first disconnect the original air intake system so that air enters the engine through the snorkel. After that, the air will flow through the snorkel rather than the front bumper’s air intake.

There are many reasons why you should choose a Jmax snorkel over the competition. First and foremost, our snorkels are designed for maximum airflow and breathability. In addition, our snorkels are made from durable materials that can withstand even the most challenging conditions.
