Donaldson supplies PowerCore G2 air intake system for Freightliner Coronados

Donaldson Company (NYSE:DCI), a leading, worldwide manufacturer of filtration systems and parts, announced today that Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) has selected Donaldson PowerCore® G2 air intake systems for their 2010 Freightliner® Coronado® family of heavy duty trucks. Donaldson PowerCore G2 filtration technology offers size reduction – 60 percent smaller than conventional cellulose filters and 30 percent smaller than Donaldson “original” PowerCore systems with geometric flexibility to overcome the tight space constraints resulting from today’s complex emissions systems. Manufactured with Ultra-Web® advanced nanofiber technology, PowerCore G2 systems deliver three times more capacity and up to 10 times more efficiency – 99.97 percent – than conventional cellulose filters. Its customizable filtration performance features lower restriction and longer filter life in a smaller package. “With the advent of the new Coronado we needed a technology for an under hood air intake system, flexible to our installation, and capable of meeting our design criteria for low restriction and superior life,” said Christopher Gedraitis, Manager Air Intake Systems at DTNA. “The improvements delivered in Donaldson’s PowerCore G2 product, specifically in size and overall dust capacity, were instrumental in our choosing this air intake system.” Commenting on DTNA selection of the PowerCore G2 air intake system, Andrew Dahlgren, General Manager, Air Products Business at Donaldson Company, said: “We have had a lot of success with the introduction of our PowerCore G2 air intake technology, both on-road and off-road, and we are extremely pleased to count a great long-standing customer like DTNA among those adopting it. The new system meets the stringent requirements for EPA10 engines with the same straight-through airflow and high density filtration as our “original” PowerCore, while offering our customers greater design flexibility due to its significantly smaller footprint.”
