Donaldson expands fuel filter product line

The expanded line of Donaldson replacement fuel filters includes a full complement of filters to fit Cummins engines, Racor fuel systems, Stanadyne Fuel Manager FM100 fuel systems, and DAVCO Fuel-Pro 380/382/482 fuel processors. "This expanded product line-up gives us comprehensive coverage of fuel filter applications in both on-road and off-road vehicles, provides performance that meets or exceeds application requirements, and offers features that make them easy to install and more convenient to use," says Rich Lewis, General Manager in charge of liquid filtration at Donaldson. Many of the fuel filters in the expanded line have Twist & Drain valves that turn the task of removing water into an easy process. This Donaldson valve has been designed with several new features, including a wider, easy-turn ‘thumb and forefinger’ profile, self-venting for improved water flow, and a single-threaded port in the bottom of the filter housing for fast and easy water draining. Donaldson filters for Cummins engines with Twist & Drain valves come standard with a fully integrated water-in-fuel sensor in the drain valve for operator notification of water presence. Donaldson filters for Racor systems (used in both on- and off-road vehicles) come with a choice of standard Twist & Drain valves or Twist & Drain valves with an integrated threaded sensor port designed to be compatible with existing OE sensors. Filters for the Racor systems also offer the option of a clear water collection bowl for visual water inspection. Donaldson filters for Stanadyne Fuel Manager FM100 systems cover a range of 500 off-road vehicle and equipment applications with just 17 part numbers, allowing dealers and maintenance shops to reduce inventory and shelf space. This reliable, simplified Donaldson design includes a universal interface, with no ‘keys’ necessary to fit existing equipment. It's also fully compatible with OE drain valves, sensors and bowls. Donaldson also offers fuel filter cartridges for DAVCO Fuel Pro 380/382/482 fuel processors, which are used in a wide variety of on-road vehicles. Available in standard and plus sizes, these filter cartridges offer the easy maintenance and consistent performance you expect from Donaldson and are compatible with OE specified electronic filter life indicators. Many Donaldson replacement fuel filters are manufactured using Synteq media, a high efficiency, robust media for fine particulate removal.
