- About Us
For over a century, Donaldson has been a leader in filtration technology, manufacturing, and testing. In tightly regulated markets, our research and development efforts have produced more efficient, longer-lasting filtration systems and filters. We offer in-house engineering expertise and are continuously investing in research and development to improve system designs and filtration technologies. As equipment and technology advance, we continue to develop innovative solutions to anticipate and exceed evolving engine and equipment requirements.
We’re also fully committed to delivering quality products and being a responsible corporate citizen. You’ll find that Donaldson strives to meet or exceed customer requirements, and we do so by coordinating a wide range of continuous improvement activities.
When developing new equipment platforms, OEMs need the assurance that potential suppliers are capable of meeting the performance requirements for a given application. This often includes solving known issues from past applications – or meeting an all-new spec that's intended to address a new performance challenge.
OEMs need supplier partners that have the expertise and capability – and the tools at their disposal – to investigate problems, predict outcomes, and evaluate and prove that you have the best solution to meet a particular challenge. And once solutions move to production, these partners also need to verify that production parts can be reliably and repeatably manufactured.
Effectively deploying the right capability at the right time in the development cycle mitigates unanticipated expense later – and proposed solutions need to be delivered in a timely and cost-effective manner.
This is the point at which most new projects begin – with a new application that includes unique requirements or an unsolved problem. Our global team of engineers, scientists, and field service resources are available to help identify and address these challenges. They have a range of tools, including full-service global labs, at their disposal.
Extensive experience in investigation, analysis, and solutioning:
A full-service Analytical Chemistry Laboratory with the following:
We have the capability to predict the performance and outcomes of a potential solution, before making significant time and resource investment in design and prototyping. We can employ this process to look at a wide range of potential solutions, distilling thousands of ideas down to the one or two that provide the optimal result.
Strong physics-based modeling and simulation technology and data science:
Offering a range of Donaldson-developed proprietary modeling and simulation capabilities:
Our extensive prototyping capabilities allow us to quickly move from the virtual solution (model) to the development of a physical part. We create these prototypes to allow us to verify the simulated results. This critical step in the development process allows us to build confidence in the proposed solution and reduces risk as we move into production.
A full-service rapid prototyping laboratory, including the following:
A full-service flat-sheet media laboratory to measure and verify:
Material property testing:
After making a significant investment in production materials and processes, we need to validate that everything we've done up to that point yields the intended result. Performance and integrity testing validates that initial production parts are able to meet the expected performance and life requirements. Once launched into production, we repeat key tests that validate the quality assurance of our manufacturing processes over time.
Filter and assembly performance testing conforming to:
A suite of full-service test laboratories to measure and validate:
Filter and assembly performance under steady-state or dynamic test conditions:
Filter and Assembly Durability:
Donaldson test laboratories monitor and precision control test conditions for either steady-state or dynamic filter inputs including:
