NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Fleetguard Inc., a global filtration, exhaust, coolant and chemical specialist for diesel and gas powered equipment, has introduced the first user-friendly oil and fuel filter to the on-highway, off-highway and marine engine markets.
The new user-friendly filter is comprised of advanced polymers, designed to make it more dent-resistant than metals. Other features include:
-Easy-grip surface with ribs for easy installation and service
-Flat no-spill bottom
-Built-in one-way socket for easy removal with 1/2″ wrench
-Rugged, corrosion-free design
-Eliminates damage to filter spud due to cross-threading
-Advanced polymer material that resists impacts and temperature extremes
-50 per cent less weight
-Environmentally friendly design
“We are pleased and excited to introduce the Fleetguard user- friendly oil and fuel filter – the first of its kind – to the marketplace,” said Pamela Carter, president of Fleetguard.
“This is a durable, robust new product that’s been designed to meet the needs of customers and service technicians for years to come,” added Jeff Hamilton, CTO at Fleetguard. “The material is strong, the technology is state-of-the art, and it’s backed by Fleetguard’s reputation for excellence in OEM and aftermarket filters.”
Company officials say the new product will combine several previously existing filters into a single part number in order to add simplicity and inventory benefits for its customers. Fleetguard performed extensive customer tests during the development process which indicate a ready acceptance of the new filter, particularly the socket removal feature, stand-up feature and the lightweight nature of the polymer product.
The new oil and fuel filter will be available later this month. For more information visit www.fleetguard.com.
