The simple nature of the environment means that turf equipment is subjected to a variety of challenges during operation. Water and dirt are literally part of the job, so it’s very important to effectively filter air, oil and fuel when using turf machines.
Engine air intake can be exposed to wet environments and contaminated by ambient dust, from ultra-fine to heavy particulates and airborne hydrocarbons. Water needs to be removed from fuel to minimize engine component wear and maximize engine power output.
And since turf equipment comes in all shapes and sizes, OEMs need to consider a wide range of increasingly stringent emissions requirements for all engine sizes. Additionally, filtration solutions need to fit both gasoline or diesel engines since both are common fuel sources in the turf industry.
All of these concerns mean that your filtration needs to be comprehensive and adaptable.
Donaldson can help turf equipment OEMs meet these needs by customizing filtration solutions for very specific applications, for both gasoline and diesel engines.
Air – Donaldson specializes in the small air filters needed on turf equipment. We offer standard and high-tech filter media, like Ultra-Web®, to provide the optimal combination of protection and airflow. Pre-cleaner stages can also be used to extend primary filter life.
Fuel – Today’s engines require greater efficiency combined with reduced emissions. Fuel distribution efficiency can be improved with high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) injectors, but it is vital that 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.
Hydraulics and Transmissions – Donaldson offers a range of innovative solutions that help hydraulic systems start clean and stay clean. Donaldson Alpha-Web™ media performs under the varied flow operating conditions experienced by most turf equipment, allowing hydraulic systems to do their jobs more efficiently and effectively over time. Additionally, by engineering to the available space on the equipment and integrating deaeration filtration into the system, our hydraulic reservoirs are optimally sized for your platform and performance requirements.
There’s an immediacy to turf management. In many cases, a lost day of work is unacceptable. So your equipment needs to be reliable, even amid the dirt and grime.
