DAVCO announces new Fuel Pro options for the North American commercial truck market
SALINE, Mich., March 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — DAVCO today unveiled the Fuel Pro 385/387/388 models, its latest all-in-one fuel filter, water separator and heavy-duty diesel fuel preheaters designed for s fit Western Star, Volvo, Navistar and Mac class 8 trucks. With the latest versions of the Fuel Pro joining the Fuel Pro 485/486/487 models, DAVCO’s tri-layer water filtration/separation technology is now available to work with heavy-duty diesel engines in the majority of Class 8 vehicles in North America.
DAVCO, the North American leader in fuel heaters/water separators and filter systems for medium and heavy-duty diesel-powered trucks, off-road equipment and commercial marine applications, is owned by Southfield, MIClarience Technologies, a global leader in advanced transportation technologies that also includes advanced Truck-Lite, RIGID and Lumitec LED lighting, ECCO and Code-3 safety systems, and advanced Road Ready telematics.
Three-layer filtration technology guarantees maximum efficiency
The hallmark of the latest Fuel Pro models is its three-layer filtration technology, ensuring that water separation functionality is maintained throughout the life of the filter. Although this technology is not new to DAVCO – it was first introduced in the Fuel Pro 485/486/487 models in 2016 – this is the first time this technology will be available on Volvo Class 8 vehicles.
Customers can also choose to add an optional preheater, nighttime heater and water-in-fuel sensor that will help start and keep the engine running in all weather conditions, depending on their specific needs.
DAVCO now also offers fuel blending as the next step in fuel heating for Class 8 units. , the 388 was designed unlike anything available today, using diesel fuel itself instead of engine coolant to provide supplemental heat during operation. Using fuel increases efficiency and takes running fuel heat to a whole new level.
New and improved Shop Pro is 44 pounds lighter, smaller without sacrifice
Additionally, DAVCO introduced the new and improved Shop Pro FXP 95, the company’s versatile shop tool for heavy-duty diesel engines. The new model has been redesigned to be 44 pounds lighter and 15% smaller than the previous version, improving customer ease of use without reducing performance.
Shop Pro FXP 95 also utilizes the latest tri-layer filtration technology used in the Fuel Pro 385 model to remove water from the outside of the media with two removal operations inside, including a coalescing layer and a hydrophobic layer. This ensures that no water will pass the filter, especially for ultra low sulfur fuels and biodiesel, which have become difficult to separate.
DAVCO develops solutions that meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s customers
In January 2022DAVCO announced a $3.5 million investment in his Saline, Michigan, campus to create an advanced electronics manufacturing center, expanding its manufacturing capabilities into advanced electronics technologies that will become more prevalent with electric utility vehicles. The state-of-the-art facility sits adjacent to DAVCO’s existing manufacturing plant and is expected to be fully operational this year.
Yet, since most fleets will continue to use diesel-powered trucks for another decade or more, DAVCO remains committed to providing industry-leading products for the diesel-powered truck market.
“With the industry’s focus on electric vehicles, today’s product announcements remind us that we remain committed to our diesel customers,” said Laurie Beegle, President at DAVCO. “Whether their products are powered by diesel or electric, commercial transport fleets can continue to expect the same level of exceptional support they have always received from us.”
