Donaldson Showcases New OEM Hydraulic Filtration Technology at Bauma 2013

FLK delivers a new way to meet efficiency and capacity needs for medium pressure applications

Donaldson Europe BVBA, a leading, worldwide manufacturer of filtration systems and parts, showcases FLK, the newest medium pressure filtration technology in hydraulic filtration for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) at Bauma 2013. Manufactured using Donaldson's industry-leading Synteq XP™ media, the FLK system satisfies a variety of performance requirements and is an ideal solution for a variety of applications, including heavy-duty vehicle and mining operations.

Donaldson's new FLK assemblies provide higher pressure fatigue ratings than traditional filters. With its re-usable filter housing and replacement cartridge design, it offers several advantages for disposal of used filters. The FLK's industrial, raised hand-grips make it easy to remove the housing from the head without the need for special service tools. The versatile filter head accommodates multiple filter lengths, while the housing locks the filter cartridge in place, providing a clean filter service process and simplifying positioning during assembly.

FLK is manufactured using two of Donaldson's industry-leading filtration technologies – Synteq XP and RadialSeal™:

Synteq XP media technology takes hydraulic filtration performance to a new level. This resin-free bonded media provides lower operating pressure drop, higher efficiency, superior cold-start filtration, extended filter life (up to 2 to 3 times that of traditional filter media) and versatile and smaller filter packaging configurations.
    Donaldson RadialSeal™ creates a clean, leak-tight seal – with no metal-to-metal contact – that protects the system from harmful ingressed contaminants, preventing cross contamination of oil. RadialSeal provides a robust connection with superior vibration resistance, making it an ideal solution for heavy-duty applications.

"As hydraulic fluid cleanliness requirements have tightened and more compact filtration systems are launched, we've seen increased demand for better hydraulic filter solutions that meet requirements for lower pressure drop, higher efficiency and longer service life," said Richard Lewis, General Manager of the Liquid Filtration Product Business Unit, at Donaldson Company. "Our FLK medium pressure hydraulic filtration products with Synteq XP media represent a significant leap forward in hydraulic filtration, meeting all of these key expectations."

Donaldson will showcase the FLK medium pressure hydraulic filtration technology along with a host of other filtration technologies at Bauma 2013 – Booth 320 (Hall A4) – held April 15-21 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany.
