“Donaldson continues to look for ways to improve upon and overcome equipment and industry challenges,” said Uldis Kreslins, hydraulic product manager. “Our latest innovations open the door for new levels of equipment performance and protection.”

Donaldson’s Alpha-Web hydraulic filtration media features a fine-fiber layer to trap and lock particles during frequent flow-rate changes and deliver transformational improvement in hydraulic fluid cleanliness and equipment protection.

“We know that more than 75% of hydraulic failures can be traced back to contaminated fluid,” Kreslins reported. “Alpha-Web filtration technology delivers a transformational improvement in hydraulic equipment protection by keeping hydraulic fluid significantly cleaner.”
