MINNEAPOLIS March 12- Donaldson Company Inc. (NYSE: DCI), a leading, worldwide manufacturer of filtration systems and parts, offers a variety of Liquid Filtration Systems with modular features. For example, the Modular Fuel System is designed to be a cost-effective, bolt-on replacement to existing medium-flow filters. Donaldson Engine Systems & Parts will showcase the Modular Fuel System and other liquid filtration technologies at the 2008 ConExpo-Con/Agg Show in Las Vegas in March.
The modular filter offers a flexible design allowing the filter to satisfy a variety of cost needs and performance specifications. A single-base head assembly is used with the modular components, which include a water sensor, electrical heater, visual water bowl, manual priming pump, and life indicator (electronic or visual). Additionally, the filter can feature a Donaldson Twist&Drain valve, interchangeable between the clear plastic bowl and the spin-on, to reduce maintenance costs. The mix and match components of this product allow customers to easily build individualized filters. Going forward, Donaldson is expanding its offering of modular features for engine liquid filtration. This provides greater flexibility in providing customized OEM solutions.
Donaldson’s modular featured filters are able to utilize different fuel media technologies. Depending on customer requirements, the filter can use traditional silicone treated cellulose or synthetic media, featuring Synteq®. Synteq is one of Donaldson’s newest filter media technologies, which removes contaminants and emulsified water from the fuel stream with a multiple-layered media technology, providing engine fuel pumps and injectors the highest level of protection.
