Donaldson Company has
announced the availability of its latest filtration innovation - high
temperature Synteq XP media technology used in Spiracle crankcase ventilation
systems. This improvement to Synteq technology was developed specifically to
meet emissions compliant engine requirements for heavy duty vehicles and
said that many engines now require improved crankcase ventilation filtration to
meet the stringent US Tier 4 Interim, EU Stage IIIB and other emissions requirements.
These call for significant reductions in particulate matter from tailpipe and
crankcase blow-by, plus reduced NOx levels. At the same time, original
equipment manufacturers need greater design flexibility to fit more components
under-hood, increase filtration efficiency and offer extended service
intervals. The combination of changes in engine technology, new regulations and
customer expectations has further driven the development of Synteq XP media
technology for the Donaldson Spiracle product line, which is designed
specifically to perform in new emission compliant engines.
emissions standards have broadened to include off-road vehicles and equipment,
we've seen increased demand for open and closed crankcase ventilation solutions
that offer the same flexible features of our original Spiracle product line –
but with requirements for higher efficiency, higher operating temperature
ranges and longer service life," said general manager of the Engine Air
Product Business Unit, Andrew Dahlgren. "Our latest Spiracle crankcase
filtration system with high temperature Synteq XP delivers all three."
filtration systems with Synteq XP are immediately available in standard sizes,
including options with pressure relief by-pass valves or customized to meet
specific OEM engine requirements.
