Dole is the largest reefer ship company in the world, operating 19 ships. We met the senior ship managers at the 2022 SMM who expressed an interest in trialing PMAX Filters on one of their vessel.

Some say why have an air filter on a ship at sea. Unfiltered engines have poor efficiency, high fuel consumption, less power and high exhaust temperatures.

A PMAX Filter fitted to the fwd main engine. An innovative securing arrangement was supplied to fit the filter with minimal work required by the excellent engineering crew.

The pleated filter is in 2 pieces, washable and expected to last for 5 years or 30,000 engine hours.
