Abstract

o Fleenor Mfg. is a small family-owned company based in Pella, Iowa. They look for unique problems to solve in the agricultural, construction, forestry, mining, and utility vehicle markets. Fleenor Mfg. It manufactures a wide variety of filters and hydraulic components. Their customers range from individuals to large scale companies such as John Deere.

o Our client has a patent-pending design for a spiral magnetic filter to filter out contaminants from various types of fluid. Fleenor Manufacturing needed data to prove the effectiveness of the filter.

o Fleenor Mfg. Needed data to be able to prove to companies interested in the product that it efficiently filters contaminate particles out of hydraulic fluid. If successful, the spiral magnetic filter has the possibility to be marketed to companies to use on hydraulic equipment.

o Baseline testing of the stand and testing of a standard sieve filter was completed to prepare the next team that will take over this project
