Filter Minder Adds Wireless

Donaldson Co., Inc. has introduced Filter Minder connected technology for monitoring engine air filters, on both on- and off-highway equipment. The newly introduced technology uses a vehicles’ own telematics system. Filter Minder wireless sensors and receivers send filter performance data to the cloud, and predictive analytics inform the user or fleet manager when filters on individual trucks or equipment are approaching the end of its optimal life.

Donaldson said Filter Minder connected technology can produce more cost-effective use of equipment by prompting filter changes based on filter condition, rather than scheduled maintenance intervals. The system also helps ensure that operators and fleet managers have the right filters in inventory when maintenance is due.

The Filter Minder monitoring system integrates with existing fleet management technology. Filter Minder technology also provides patented low-energy sensors that help conserve power and extend battery life, filtration insights for an entire fleet with customizable alerts by text, phone, email or dashboard; and a scalable platform that can expand to monitor fuel, lube and hydraulics filters, with additional applications coming soon.

“Filter service performed too early is inefficient and service performed too late can damage equipment, cause unplanned downtime and raise operating costs,” said Nate Zambon, director of the Donaldson Filter Minder product line. “Maintaining the filtration system at the optimal time best protects the engine and drives down total cost of ownership.”
