MAHLE Service Solutions announces a major expansion of its FluidPRO line of fluid exchange systems for the commercial vehicle aftermarket, including the introduction of four new machines that are designed to increase shop productivity.
MAHLE says the new products are the FluidPRO CFF-1HD Multi-Fluid Filtration System, the VCX-32HD Coolant Exchange System, the FluidPRO EFP-150HD Portable Fuel Priming System and FluidPRO VOX-14HD Oil Exchange System.
“We are excited to broaden our offering of fluid exchange systems for the medium- and heavy-duty aftermarket,” says Andreas Huber, general manager at MAHLE Service Solutions. “Due to customer feedback, we have added these four machines with the primary goal of helping shops increase their overall productivity by automating routine tasks that technicians perform daily.”
According to MAHLE, the FluidPRO CFF-1HD Multi-Fluid Filtration System is an all-in-one machine that can clean a wide variety of industrial fluids. The CFF-1HD is versatile and portable. It helps filter oil and water to minimize component wear and maximize the service life of hydraulic oil, engine oil, gear lube and transmission fluids. The company says the product’s closed loop filtration process eliminates spills and contamination while extending the life of vehicle fluids to help reduce a shop’s operational costs. The CFF-1HD is ideal for on- and off-highway applications.
The new VCX-32HD Coolant Exchange System allows for the extraction, storage, and refilling of large capacity engine coolant systems (up to 32 gallons), MAHLE says. The VCX-32HD eliminates air pockets during engine maintenance.
The new FluidPRO EFP-150HD Portable Fuel Priming System is a diesel fuel primer to help get stranded drivers safely and quickly back on the road. When diesel vehicles run out of fuel, the injectors require priming to restart the engine. Due to its fast and efficient priming function, MAHLE says the EFP-150HD eliminates manual roadside priming to swiftly get down vehicles back in service. The EFP-150HD, made of rugged all steel construction, primes in seconds and has a resettable fuel meter for billing customers after a fuel transfer, the company says.
Finally, the FluidPRO VOX-14HD Oil Exchange System uses air to purge used oil from the vehicle’s filter and oil passages while the oil pan is evacuated and replaced with clean oil. The machine makes the oil change process virtually automatic, so technicians can perform other maintenance tasks while the machine operates. All exchange products feature quick disconnects for vehicles in a fleet – making exchanges fast, convenient and spill-free, the company says.
