Donaldson answers clean diesel questions on new website

Donaldson Co. introduced MyCleanDiesel.com, an online resource that answers questions about diesel fuel challenges faced by owners of modern engines. This site sets out to answer the questions: what is “clean” diesel, why is it needed and how is it obtained?

According to Donaldson, diesel that is technically within industry specifications is often too dirty for use in modern engines. It has to be cleaner than accepted levels, or it can cause any number of problems, from clogged onboard filters to complete injector failure.

“Many operators may not be aware they have a problem in their fuel tanks that can lead to significant downtime and expense,” said Scott Grossbauer, global manager of clean fuel and lubricant solutions at Donaldson Co. “Worldwide diesel fuel supplies can be more than one thousand times dirtier upon delivery than what’s recommended for use in modern diesel engines and, increasingly, owners find out too late that their diesel fuel has issues that can adversely affect uptime. MyCleanDiesel.com aims to educate all diesel users so they can seek out solutions before they experience a catastrophic incident.”

The new site also offers readers the option to ask any question they might have about diesel-related challenges. Every submitted question will receive an answer from a Donaldson Clean Fuel Solutions expert.

“Every equipment manager’s situation is different,” said Grossbauer. “So while this new resource is incredibly useful to anyone using diesel equipment, the ability to offer real solutions to real world challenges is what sets MyCleanDiesel.com apart.”
