- About Us
Construction, by its nature, is mobile and variable. The equipment goes where the projects are, and the construction companies themselves range in size and equipment capabilities. The construction environment and operating conditions also vary widely – and so does the consistency and quality of the fuel supply. And increasingly stringent emissions requirements for off-road equipment are ratcheting up throughout the world, creating new requirements for internal combustion engines. Equipment manufacturers have been forced to make significant modifications to equipment engine and emissions designs to keep pace with these regulations, and Donaldson is at the forefront of developing new technologies and system designs that provide greater performance and functionality in increasingly smaller packages.
The construction industry deploys fleets of equipment that vary in functional specialization and size. This means that filtration solutions need to adapt to a wide variety of space claims and functions as well. Donaldson specializes in fitting the filter to the space and application. We develop customized solutions to meet your unique function and size requirements, without sacrificing performance.
Air – Construction presents a broad range of challenges for clean air intake over varied dust conditions – all while maintaining effective airflow to meet power output and fuel efficiency requirements. On top of this, smaller air cleaners are expected to do more in less space. To meet these needs, Donaldson offers a range of air filtration options, including specialized and separate pre-cleaners, integrated pre-cleaners, and scavenge solutions. We also offer our industry-leading PowerCore® configurations and Ultra-Web® media.
Fuel – Engine technology has changed dramatically over the past two decades to meet environmental regulations that now require greater engine efficiency and reduced emissions from construction equipment. Fuel distribution efficiency can be improved with high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) injectors, as long as the fuel is protected from water and particulate contamination. To provide this protection, Donaldson offers leading filtration media options like the high-performing primary fuel filter water separator system that features Synteq™ DRY coalescing technology. Particulate contamination can be removed four times more effectively than our competitors’ best alternatives with our secondary fuel filters that use Synteq XP™ media.
Hydraulics – To safeguard equipment uptime, hydraulic systems on construction equipment need to start clean and stay clean. Donaldson offers a range of innovative solutions like Clean Seal to help hydraulic systems start clean and Alpha-Web™ media to help systems remain clean. Hydraulic systems perform more efficiently for longer periods of time with Alpha-Web media, including under the varied-flow operating conditions most heavy-duty construction equipment experience. Additionally, the available space and integrated deaeration filtration of hydraulic reservoirs can be engineered to the optimal size for your platform.
Lube – Donaldson lube filtration options deliver an ideal balance of efficiency and restriction. Our filters protect engines from contaminants while extending the life of oil and filters, saving on cost, space, and maintenance.
Emissions – Changes to construction equipment design and technology in the last several decades have been driven by increasingly stringent emissions requirements. To meet these requirements, Donaldson can design customized components that make emissions systems more effective and in a smaller space. We also offer unique mixer and dosing technologies.
There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for anything in construction. Every job requires different equipment, and every equipment has different needs.
