LAKE IN THE HILLS, Ill. — Not knowing how much ether is left in a starting fluid cylinder can sometimes be costly.
Simply refer to Murphy’s Laws: chances are, when you really need starting fluid is exactly when the cylinder will be empty. Previously, the only way for determining the amount of starting fluid remaining in a cylinder was to remove the cylinder and weigh it.
However, Kold-Ban International (KBi) has developed an alternative solution — the KBi Low Cylinder Indicator. It’s an electronic solid-state device used to determine when a KBi Dieselmatic or Dieselmatic Kompac cylinder needs to be replaced.
When the starting fluid approaches empty, a red light will illuminate on the unit indicating that a new KBi cylinder should soon be installed.
KBi’s indicator can be purchased as an accessory for an already existing system or ordered with a new system. For more information, visit www.koldban.com on the Web.
