Donaldson says its Blue filters offer the highest level of technology for improved efficiency and enhanced engine protection for both off- and on-road equipment. The company adds that equipment owners benefit from reduced maintenance costs and increased equipment uptime.Donaldson Blue fuel filters, manufactured using Donaldson’s Synteq XP™ media technology, are said to deliver high performance under dynamic engine vibration, pulsation and fuel surge conditions. Manufactured using Donaldson’s Ultra-Web® fine fiber technology, Donaldson Blue air filters are claimed to be the best choice for off-road applications as they help reduce maintenance costs and increase equipment uptime. For lube filters, the key to performance is balancing efficiency, capacity and restriction to provide optimal performance. Donaldson Synteq™ media is said to balance all three characteristics, removing greater amounts of fine contaminant and delivering increased contaminant holding capacity compared to standard cellulose media, without restricting oil flow. The Donaldson Blue product line is expanding to include its first Donaldson Blue Hydraulic Filters. Donaldson says they deliver filtration efficiency with fluid that’s up to 14 times cleaner; longer filter life for extended filter change intervals and reduced maintenance; and reduced flow restriction, which minimizes energy loss and time in filter bypass, even during cold starts.
