At the Technology and Maintenance Council's Spring Meeting, Donaldson Co. announced that its Filter Minder Connect is now available for monitoring fuel filters and engine oil condition on heavy-duty engines.
Filter Minder Connect sensors can measure pressure drop and differential pressure on fuel filters, plus the condition of engine oil, including density, viscosity, dielectric constant and resistivity.
The Filter Minder Connect sensors and receiver wirelessly transmit performance data to the cloud and predictive analytics inform users when filters and engine oil are approaching the end of their optimal life. Fleets that utilize Geotab and Filter Minder Connect monitoring can receive fleet data and analytics on their laptop or mobile device via the MyGeotab dashboard – making it easier to monitor filtration systems and oil, and to service them at the optimal time.
Previously, the Filter Minder Connect was commercially available for engine air filtration in on-highway trucks and off-road equipment. Heavy Duty Trucking named Donaldson’s Filter Minder a top product in 2020.
