This article is a continuation of research on the possibilities of applications of fuzzy systems and fuzzy systems of higher order to control the air filters. The article presents the author’s fuzzy implications and use of them in the interval type 2 fuzzy controller. Variable inputs which are the concentration’s levels of nitrogen oxides described by linguistic variables, interval type 2 fuzzy sets using the rules of the type IF-THEN controller calculates the filter settings. The results are highly correlated to a data provided by the expert.
