How Donaldson reduced maintenance costs and downtime

Donaldson Company, a global leader in the filtration industry, provides innovative filter technology that improves diesel fuel purity, reduces engine wear and improves equipment performance.

The Challenge

As a fuel filter traps contaminants, the pressure required to pump the fuel through the filter rises. Eventually the pressure will get high enough that flow is restricted and the pump can shut down, causing unscheduled downtime worth thousands of dollars.

The Results

Scott Grossbauer, Global Director of Clean Solutions at Donaldson Company, said, "AssetScan lets our end-users know when their filters are plugging and need to be changed. This allows them to achieve significant savings by avoiding unscheduled downtime of critical pieces of equipment."
