Water Filtration

Here are some photos from a recent visit to a water waste treatment centre in Scotland. A team of our Technical Sales Engineers visited the site to find out more about the issues that were being experienced. They carried out a free site survey for the customer and were able to identify where the key problems were and offer cost effective solutions. Their recommendations have saved the customer money lead to less waste flowing into the holding tanks, solving this issue and allowing optimum efficiency for this site.

Our Technical Sales Engineer will continue to work closely with the team at this water treatment centre and be on hand to offer guidance and assistance with any future filtration issues.

Responding to an Offshore Oil Rig Breakdown

The Situation

In an oil driven world, every drop counts. Each second of downtime during the oil production process, comes with an enormous cost. A well-known oil company faced issues with its on-site diesel powered generators. Donaldson delivers clean solutions to make sure the on-site engine equipment is protected against contaminated fuel which causes serious downtime.

 

The Challenge

A world market leader in fuel, lubricants and other petroleum derivative experienced unexpected breakdown of multiple diesel engines on generators that foresee oil rigs with the necessary power to pump up oil. Research showed that the fuel used to power the oil drilling diesel generators wasn’t clean. Moreover, it showed that on-site equipment fluids had extremely poor filtration and in some cases, no pre-filtration at all. The contaminated fuel caused the diesel generators to breakdown.

 

The Solution

Donaldson has the perfect solution to clean fuel and to assure your equipment won’t break down due to ‘dirty fuel’. One 4-way manifold on the inlet and two 2-way manifolds on the outlet, one active and one for backup, were installed at the on-site bulk diesel tank. In addition, to avoid water contamination in the tank, Donaldson delivered it’s unique T.R.A.P.™ breather concept.

 

The Result

The customer decided to foresee three additional oil rig sites with Donaldson Clean Solutions. By reducing contamination levels in the bulk filtration system, you can reduce maintenance, down-time, labour costs and your total cost of ownership. Count on Donaldson when every operating hour counts!

Investigating & Preventing Engine Failure to Bus Fleet

The Situation

Public transport is very important to keep modern society going. Lots of people rely on it to travel, go to work or for day-to-day activities. Especially in urban area’s each minute of delay has an immediate effect on the life of dozens or hundreds of people. The image of public transport gets seriously affected when buses don’t show up on time. A well-known Spanish bus company faced serious downtime due to blocked injectors. This resulted in frequent unplanned maintenance services of their fleet.

 

The Challenge

Find out why the buses showed less performance and engine failures. Investigate why engine injector problems always lay at the root of this issue. One 160.000 litre tank, which foresees the vehicles of fuel, contains contaminates and needs cleaning.

 

The Solution and Clean Solutions Partners

Donaldson has the expertise and experience to assess the situation and offer the right solution at the right time. Tank samples were taken and showed serious contamination of the fuel. Donaldson advised to install a Protect and Polish principle to ensure clean fuel for the vehicles. A double head filtration element with P568666 on the dispenser polishes the fuel when it goes from the tank into the vehicles. To protect the tank from future environmental pollution a T.R.A.P. breather is installed.

 

The Result

The cleanliness level when from 21/20/17 before the installation to 14/13/11 ISO4406/99. Which resulted in significant less maintenance time and higher and longer performing engines. The customer decided to install the Protect and Polish solution on 15 other servicing stations. By reducing contamination levels in the bulk filtration system, you can reduce maintenance, down-time, labour costs and your total cost of ownership. Count on Donaldson when every operating hour counts!
