MINNEAPOLIS – Donaldson Company now offers its ground breaking fuel filtration technology for Cummins® ISX engines, one of the most common engines used in on-highway trucks. There are two Donaldson Blue™ fuel filters available: the DBF5811 for 15.0 litre ISX engines and DBF6776 for 11.9 litre ISX engines.

Clean fuel is essential. With the high pressure common rail (HPCR) fuel systems used in today’s engines, research shows that even small amounts of very fine contaminant can do serious damage to injectors. Contaminant exposure can cause premature fuel system wear and even injector failures, resulting in unexpected downtime and expensive repairs.

Donaldson Blue filters with Synteq XP™ nanofiber media offer best-in-class contaminant capture and containment. Tests show that they deliver fuel that is four times cleaner than other manufacturers’ best filters, and clean fuel is essential.

The secret to the enhanced performance is in the filter media. Donaldson Blue fuel filters use proprietary Synteq XP nanofiber technology. While traditional filters use resin to bind fibers together (which fills gaps and causes filters to clog with contaminant sooner), Synteq XP media use resin-free fiber bonding. When the filter media isn’t “pre-clogged” by resin, it lowers the overall restriction allowing it to do what filters are intended to do – remove and retain more of the smallest contaminant. Donaldson Blue fuel filters deliver industry leading performance of greater than 99% efficiency for contaminant 4 microns or larger.
