Donaldson Co. — a manufacturer of filtration systems, replacement parts and emissions control systems — has announced that it has been awarded all of the exhaust and emissions aftertreatment device packaging for DaimlerChrysler’s MBE900 medium-duty engines in the U.S. market for 2007 through 2009.

“We are pleased that DaimlerChrysler has selected Donaldson as its exclusive medium-duty exhaust and emissions aftertreatment device supplier,” says Tom Scalf, general manager of the emissions group at Minneapolis-based Donaldson. “This award further demonstrates that Donaldson’s innovation, technology and development capabilities continue to be recognized by our OEM partners. This is the largest medium-duty business order awarded by an OEM to an emissions control systems provider for the U.S. market for 2007.”

The company says the aftertreatment device includes packaging for Detroit Diesel and Mercedes Benz MBE900 engines designed for medium-duty vehicle brands. With this award, Donaldson will supply diesel oxidation catalysts and diesel particulate filter packaging that will be a part of the system used to meet Environmental Protection Agency requirements.
