Truck & Components

DONALDSON CO. Fuel Filters, Pre-Cleaner DonaldsonCompany's newest line of replacement filters suits on- or off-road vehicle applications—with coverage for Racor fuel systems and Cummins engines. Twist&Drain Fuel Kits contain all the components needed for a complete change out, including: water separating fuel filter with Twist&Drain valve; water collection bowl for easy visual inspection; and, alternative Twist&Drain valve with water-in-fuel sensor or threaded port to meet water-in-fuel sensing requirements.
The Twist&Drain valve, a key feature on Donaldson replacement filters, turns the complicated task of removing water into an easy process. The valve has been designed with such features as a wider, easy-turn "thumb and forefinger" profile; self-venting configuration, allowing for easy water flow; and, a single threaded port in the bottom of the filter housing for fast and easy water draining without the awkwardness of multiple sensor and drain ports.
DonaldsonSeparately, the company's newest air pre-cleaner, the all-metal TopSpin HD is built for high-dust and heavy-debris environments, including construction. Available in eight sizes, it features a high-efficiency design enabling it to separate and eject up to 80 percent of incoming contamination before it can reach the engine's air cleaner. It also helps prolong air filter life, which results in less frequent air filter replacement, lower operating costs, and less maintenance downtime.
"Pre-cleaning air before it enters an air cleaner can dramatically improve the life of an air filter, and help avoid costly engine failure," states John Fitzgerald, product manager, Donaldson Engine Air Filtration. "TopSpin HD is a cost-effective solution that is designed specifically to perform in punishing conditions where precleaners can really take a beating." —,
