Donaldson buys US filter indicator and sensor producer

Founded in 1977, Engineered Products generates has sales of approximately US$9 million through its Filter Minder brand. Filter Minder products connect to air and fuel filtration systems to measure, indicate and predict remaining filter life.

“The acquisition of Engineered Products supports our strategy of technical leadership in filtration products for both our OEM customers and their end users of our filters,” said Tom Scalf, Donaldson’s senior vice president for Engine Products. “We see an increasing need for measuring and monitoring filter life in diesel powered equipment, and communicating filter status information visually, electronically and remotely as vehicles become increasingly connected with fleet management systems. The information from Filter Minder products helps equipment operators maximise the performance and uptime of their equipment, and plan their filter changes.”
