Donaldson has launched an improved medium-flow fuel filter with modular features, designed as a cost-effective, bolt-on replacement to existing filters. Its flexible design allows it to satisfy a variety of cost needs and performance specifications, the company says.

A single-base head assembly is used with the modular components, which include a water sensor, electrical heater, visual water bowl, manual priming pump, and life indicator (electronic or visual). The filter can also feature a Donaldson ‘Twist&Drain’ valve, interchangeable between the clear plastic bowl and the spin-on, to reduce maintenance costs.

The mix-and-match components allow users to build individualized filters easily. Different fuel media technologies can be used. Depending on the need, the filter can use traditional silicone-treated cellulose or synthetic media featuring Synteq. That’s one of Donaldson’s newest filter media, which removes contaminants and emulsified water from the fuel stream with a multiple-layered media technology, providing engine fuel pumps and injectors the highest level of protection.
