Hartridge Ltd is proud to announce that their latest addition to the test bench portfolio has commenced production.
The CRp-PC is designed to provide service workshops with an efficient and cost effective method of testing all makes common rail pumps in Hartridge "All Makes" mode.This stand alone bench is quick and simple to use.
Since its launch at Automechanika Frankfurt in September 2008, the CRp-PC has gone through weeks of various R&R tests (Repeatability & Reproducibility) as well as Pump & Auto Pressure Control correlation tests with the AVM2-PC. The test bench was recently presented to our UK customers during Trade Days at the Hartridge factory as well as at a CRp-PC launch in the Czech Republic, generating a lot of interest.
Gerrard Herring, General Manager at Hartridge Ltd said “This has proven to be an exiting new development. The CRp-PC was presented to our UK customers last week during UK Trade Days, and we received a lot of positive feedback. Despite the current uncertainty in the economic environment, we are certainly seeing encouraging signs of workshop owners wanting to invest in their businesses.”
The first batch of machines have all been sold and are currently going through their last series of tests before being shipped to their new owners, in the Czech Republic and the Netherlands.
The CRp-PC will be on display on the Delphi Stand at Autopromotec, in Italy from the 20th to the 24th May 2009.Read More
Hartridge was proud to host its annual Distributor event and welcome 120 delegates from 50 countries to itsannual business review and awards ceremony
19 - 21 January, 2009. The event was used by Hartridge and major fuel injection manufacturers to launch new products and initiatives for the diesel aftermarket sector.
The Delphi Direct Acting Diesel Common Rail System is an advanced fuel injection system that uses innovative injection technology. Instead of being moved by an electro-hydraulic circuit, the injector needle is moved by apiezo ceramic actuator. In this manner, the injector can spray the fuel into the combustion chamber much faster and with greatly improved accuracy and spray atomisation when compared to the existing fuel injection technologies. This means that NOx (nitrogen oxide) emissions are reduced by approximately 30% with approximatly 10% more torq and power.Read More
