Incorporating the environmental, regulatory, protection, and performance needs of an engine can be challenging for OEMs, but customized Donaldson filtration solutions can help keep engines running smoothly.
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.
