Dually Drain Pan has been extended a patent for a “Method of catching lubricant as it is drained from the wheel hub of a vehicle and a drain pan for the same,” the company announced.
“This is the successful outcome to a process that was started in 2010. It took a bit longer than we anticipated, but I knew our unique design of an axle drain pan with holes to allow it to attach to a wheel hub with a lug nut was patentable,” says Dually Drain Pan President Russ Andrews.
“Our well liked Super Single Axle Drain has been on the market since 2010. It is a needed, useful and environmentally friendly tool for every heavy duty truck, trailer and bus technician that performs wheel end service on 22.5 and 24.5-inch wheel hubs.”
Andrews says it is the only pan that is designed to work for super singles and dual wheels.
“We are developing other pans for smaller truck and bus wheels and hubs for the North America and global markets. We want to thank our valued distributors for believing with us in the value of our unique pan and partnering with us by adding their private branded logo to our pans and achieving sales goals that have allowed us to continue this patent process to completion.”
