Pre­vent­ing car­bon build-up

Motor Equipment News - - DIESEL PARTS & SERVICES -

Flash­lube has re­leased a range of ve­hi­cle spe­cific fit­ting kits to as­sist with the cor­rect in­stal­la­tion of its Catch Can Pro unit, and help com­bat any dam­age caused by car­bon build up in mod­ern diesel en­gines.

En­vi­ron­men­tal laws pre­vent mod­ern en­gines from re­leas­ing oil mist or blow by into the at­mos­phere, forc­ing it to be re­cir­cu­lated back into the com­bus­tion cham­ber.

The by-prod­uct of this process can be a hard car­bon sub­stance which grad­u­ally builds up around the walls of the ve­hi­cles EGR valve, in­let man­i­fold, turbo bear­ings and in­ter­cooler, caus­ing a se­vere loss of power and ef­fi­ciency, and po­ten­tially ex­pen­sive en­gine dam­age. This oc­cur­rence is es­pe­cially true in diesel ve­hi­cles where the fuel burns much dirt­ier than in petrol en­gines.

Man­u­fac­tured un­der li­cence in Ger­many, the Flash­lube Catch Can Pro works to pre­vent this build up by fil­ter­ing out any oil mist be­fore it has the chance to reach en­gine com­po­nents, de­liv­er­ing cleaner air to the en­gine and re­duc­ing the like­li­hood of con­tam­i­na­tion and dam­age.

The new Flash­lube fit­ting kits in­clude the com­pact Catch Can Pro unit, which fea­tures large 19mm in­let and out­let ports to en­sure easy fit­ting. To fur­ther aide in in­stal­la­tion, the kits are en­gi­neered to be ve­hi­cle spe­cific and come com­plete with OE man­u­fac­tured, oil re­sis­tant hoses, as well as all nec­es­sary hose clamps and brack­ets.

The unit is fit­ted with a re­place­able fil­ter el­e­ment and fea­tures pres­sure re­lief and vac­uum re­lief safety valves to en­sure that in­stal­la­tion of the unit won’t over-pres­surise the en­gine.
