Donaldson Co. Inc. announced it is offering its Filter Minder wireless monitoring system for air filters on heavy-duty engines after 18 months of successful field testing.

The connected technology is intended to optimize fleet maintenance practices in off-road equipment and on-road truck fleets.

“Maintenance managers can now make informed air-filtration maintenance decisions about when to conduct maintenance and maximize the life of a filter, instead of changing filters based upon time or distance intervals,” Nate Zambon, director of Filter Minder at Donaldson, said in a release.

In a major expansion of Filter Minder’s monitoring capability across equipment platforms, Donaldson is now field-testing wireless fuel and hydraulic filter-restriction monitoring, as well as engine oil-condition monitoring, according to the Minneapolis-based company.

Data from the Filter Minder wireless monitoring system is accessible to users via the MyGeotab dashboard. — Transport Topics
