Designing engines presents a plethora of challenges for OEMs. From geographically varied environmental conditions to rapidly evolving vehicle performance and emissions standards, there are a lot of factors to be considered. On-engine parts are subjected to extreme vibration but still need to perform consistently under challenging conditions, and end-users need easy access to OE-quality service parts.
On-engine filtration faces these challenges and then some. Air intake filtration needs to account for a variety of contamination sources, such as airborne hydrocarbons, wet environments, and ambient air dust-loading from ultra-fine to heavy particulates. Fuel needs to be protected from contaminants to avoid high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) fuel injector wear and plugging which can result in costly repairs, warranty claims, replacement, and equipment downtime. And water needs to be removed from fuel to minimize engine component wear and maximize engine power output. It’s a lot for OEMs to manage.
To help address these challenges, Donaldson designs customized filtration solutions that protect engine components and maximize uptime. We are a global leader in filter media design and development and can create efficient filtration systems for specific engine needs.
Air – To deliver superior engine protection from airborne contaminants, our air filters incorporate standard, high-tech filter media like Ultra-Web™ media. We also offer pre-cleaners that can be incorporated to extend primary filter life and safety filter stages to protect the engine. All of our air filtration solutions maximize filter life, optimize engine power output and extend equipment uptime.
Fuel – Today’s engines require greater efficiency combined with reduced emissions. Fuel distribution efficiency can be improved with HPCR injectors, as long as the fuel is protected from water and particulate contamination. Donaldson offers leading filtration media options to provide this protection, including the high-performing primary fuel filter water separator system that features Synteq™ DRY coalescing technology. Plus, our secondary fuel filters that use Synteq™ XP media remove particulate contamination four times better than our competitors’ best alternatives.
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.
Engines need to run – and run efficiently. Donaldson builds solutions to protect modern engines. We deliver highly customized filtration systems designed with the specific needs of the vehicle in mind. On-road, off-road or both, we’ll work with you to create the optimal solutions to protect your engines and powertrains.
Our vast distribution network ensures easy access to parts, better supporting your manufacturing operations or your dealer service parts network. We proactively anticipate challenges and work directly with your teams to solve problems. And we do it nearly everywhere in the world.
Our bottom line is your bottom line. Donaldson creates technical solutions that address real end-user needs. This creates differentiated value and revenue streams for your brand that help lower the overall cost of ownership.
