High Performance Protection

The Donaldson replacement air filtration element is designed for the Mercedes-Benz Actros with filter elements A0040946804 (Donaldson DBA3746) or A0040946904 (Donaldson DBA3745).

It combines two in-house developed, state-of-the-art technologies:

  • PowerCore® filtration technology
  • Ultra-Web® media technology

The result is a high-performance air filtration element that meets OE specifications.

The replacement air filtration element is constructed with a plastic shell that is fully integrated into the seal. This creates a rigid structure that assures a perfect seal. The top fin incorporates a durable yet comfortable service handle.


Powercore Filtration Technology

Vehicle design continues to evolve from classic to aerodynamic. The implications include less under-hood space, hotter engines and higher airflow requirements.

With more media packed into a smaller space and a simplified airflow path, PowerCore filter packs provide high performance with a low pressure drop. This technology is proven in field applications for more than 15 years.


Ultra-Web Media Technology

Proven and proprietary Ultra-Web media technology delivers longer filter life, cleaner air and greater cost saving than other types of cartridge filter media.

Consisting of very fine, continuous, resilient fiber 0.2-0.3 micron in diameter, Ultra-Web forms a permanent nanofiber web with very fine interfiber spaces that trap dust on the surface of the media.

Experience The Benefits

Improved engine performance

Protect your engine, and improve their performance and power. And at lower lifecycle costs too!


A lifetime of use in all conditions

Donaldson’s replacement air filtration elements are built to last. They are durable, robust and designed to perform in extreme temperature and humidity conditions.


Environmental protection

Contribute to a greener, healthier environment, thanks to fewer filter changes and less waste disposal.


Superior to cellulose/synthetic filters

With commodity filters such as plain cellulose or cellulose/synthetic media blends, pressure drop starts high and rises quickly. With Ultra-Web nanofiber technology you get phenomenal surface loading ability and superior dust release capabilities.
