Web-connected solution prompts timely maintenance, helps manage
filtration costs

Donaldson Company, Inc. (NYSE:DCI), a leading worldwide manufacturer of
filtration systems, is unveiling web-connected technology that monitors
industrial dust, fume and mist collectors, and notifies owners to take
early, cost-saving maintenance actions. Donaldson will offer the
solution through an early-adopter program. The early adopter program
will be introduced at FABTECH November 6-8. A formal launch is slated
for 2019.

The smart technology uses sensors and a controller to gather real-time
data from a collector, apply analytics in the cloud, and relay insights
back to the operator through a web-based dashboard and email or text
alerts. Proper maintenance such as timely filter changes or earlier
hopper cleaning can help prevent larger problems, assist in optimizing
performance, and aid in reducing total dust and fume management costs
over time.

"Operators are looking for actionable data from their collectors. Now
our technology not only alerts them when equipment needs attention, but
also spells out what actions to take," says Wade Wessels, global
director of IoT and Connected Solutions for Donaldson. "The technology
can help control costs by providing advanced notification of potential
maintenance issues."

The Donaldson solution can be installed on existing or new industrial
dust and fume equipment. While benefits will vary, pilot tests have
demonstrated significant savings in both time and costs. A frequent
three-hour maintenance job in one facility was reduced to just 15
minutes, for example, and premature filter wear in another was quickly
discovered so that it could be diagnosed and solved remotely using
historic data patterns.

"I am thrilled that we have already demonstrated value for owners by
supporting increases in uptime, cutting maintenance hours, resolving
issues faster and reducing filter replacement costs," said Rick DeJong,
senior director of product technologies for the Donaldson Torit® line of
filtration equipment. "As we develop this technology even further, it
will increasingly change dust equipment operation and maintenance from a
reactive to a more proactive model."
