MINNEAPOLIS – March 4, 2014 – Donaldson Company, a leading, worldwide manufacturer of filtration systems and parts, is pleased to announce that the company’s ground-breaking fuel filtration technology is now available for Cummins® QSK engines.
Branded as Donaldson Blue™, these new DBF5782 fuel filters are manufactured using Donaldson’s Synteq XP™ media technology. On-engine fuel filters offer the last chance to remove damaging contaminants from your fuel system. Therefore, it's essential that fuel filters remove and retain as much contaminant as possible in all types of operating conditions. Donaldson Blue filters with Synteq XP media offer best-in-class contaminant removal and retention – tests show that they deliver fuel that is four times cleaner over the life of the filter – all under the dynamic operating conditions that your engines and equipment experience every day.
“Donaldson has a long history of providing filtration technologies that protect a wide range of heavy-duty engines,” said Ted Angelo, Global Product Director at Donaldson Company. “For fleets and operators that run Cummins QSK engines, this new fuel filtration technology with our advanced Synteq XP media captures and retains greater amounts of contaminant from fuel, dramatically reducing downstream particle counts and delivering industry-leading injector and fuel system protection.”
Traditional filters use resin-based media. In simple terms, the resin that’s used to bind fibers together also has the unintended effect of filling in gaps, causing filters to clog with contaminant sooner. Donaldson Blue fuel filters with Synteq XP media use a resin-free bonding technique. When the filter media isn’t “pre-clogged” by resin, it lowers the overall restriction of the filter, allowing it to do what filters are intended to do – remove and retain fine contaminant.
Angelo continued, “The end result is that Donaldson Blue filters deliver best-in-class fuel cleanliness, lower operating pressure drop, greater contaminant holding capacity and higher filtration efficiency.” According to Angelo, “This new Donaldson Blue fuel filter is nothing short of a game-changer for Tier 4 engines.”
Donaldson will showcase the new line of Donaldson Blue filters at CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IPFE 2014 – South Hall, Booth #83940 – held March 4-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
