Hytec Fluid Technology (HFT), a Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group company, has been appointed a distributor of Femco oil drainage equipment in South Africa. Femco oil drain plugs are designed to deliver 100% spill-free toolless oil changes for a cleaner and safer workplace, ideal for use across multiple sectors, from transport to energy and earth moving, in any mobile or industrial fluid change applications.
Alex Venter, Key Account Manager, of the company said, “Additionally, they dramatically reduce downtime by allowing oil changes done on site.” They are designed to replace existing plugs on any drain valve, whether in engines, gearboxes, hydraulic tanks, radiators, axles, drivelines, fluid tanks, or gensets. These solid brass, ISO 9000-certified plugs are temperature resistant, facilitating fast oil drainage without any delay normally required for the oil to cool first. He adds, “This is all backed by Femco’s lifetime warranty.”
The company stocks select products from – oil drain plugs; compact oil drain plugs; click drain oil plugs; XL oil drain plugs and non-drip oil plugs – these fit easily on most standard drain hoses, and/or the company can customise according to requirements, including angled or extended drain connectors or special adapters.
The oil drain plugs are supplied with fitted magnets, which can be inspected for metal fragments after oil draining to ensure oil system health. Mobile servicing with the use of specialised evacuation units is recommended, and the company can manufacture evacuation units as required.
Extend equipment and machinery service intervals, maximised uptime, and reduction in cost of ownership is the goal.
