"With its Ultra Web nanofiber media the PJAC Ultra also provides a 10-100X improvement in engine protection," Gillingham said.
The PJAC Ultra system maintains the same physical dimensions as a conventional air cleaner and is scalable, with a variety of sizes available.
The PJAC is a self-cleaning air filter that cleans filter elements with short duration pulses of compressed air.
The PJAC system was capable of operating for more than 200 hours in the desert without filter maintenance, which optimizes vehicle reliability, reduces fuel consumption, extends filter service life and decreases engine air restriction, said Donaldson.
Tests have also shown that fuel reductions of up to 5% can be achieved with the PJAC systems, said the company.
Colin Andreoli, military solutions manager, Donaldson Filtration Solutions added, "To compare the PJAC system to traditional military solutions is difficult due to the magnitude of difference in performance.
The PJAC systems have proven capable of lasting hundreds of hours without clogging."
