SHOW NEWS: Donaldson selects B&K vibration test system


Filtration technology firm Donaldson now has the ability to perform in-house vibration tests on its products, and has selected Brüel & Kjær’s LDS V9 combo system for this purpose.

The company is developing a heavy truck air intake filtration system, which will undergo rigorous testing to ensure it is robust enough to withstand shock and vibration during its operational lifetime.

After seeking advice from several suppliers, Donaldson chose Brüel & Kjær’s LDS V9 Combo Dual Slip Plate. Combined in one fabricated frame, it is easy to install and highly mobile. The system features additional hydrostatic load carrying bearings and is capable of 75mm (3in) displacement. Linear bearings provide axial restraint for low distortion, while additional bearings provide tolerance for thermal expansion and contraction.

Brüel & Kjær will be exhibiting at Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2015 at booth 1750.
