Sogefi, the automotive component company of the CIR Group is the OE supplier of the new diesel fuel filter for Ford Transit 2.0l engine range. At the beginning of April, Sogefi has introduced the aftermarket version Fram® C12148.
Sogefi was chosen by Ford to supply this diesel engine filter adhering to the latest emission regulations and biofuel compatibility, taking in consideration the high requirements in terms of robustness and lifetime in order to meet users’ expectations.
This product gathers some of the very core specific know-how of Sogefi like module conception, chevron pleating and Diesel3Tech+™ technology.
The filter media has been designed to offer very high efficiency for particles down to 4 microns, ensuring a very long life of the high pressure pump and the injectors.
Diesel3Tech+™ provides an extreme protection against water contamination in the fuel, preserving both engine reliability and injection system from rust, wear and malfunction.
This technology separates water droplets (down to 10µm) from fuel and stores water in a dedicated water tank. Once maximum water level is reached, water in fuel sensor lights up a warning light on the dashboard and in this way, separated water can be removed from the water tank through the drain screw.
Finally, Sogefi has developed its own dimensioning software to right size filter elements regarding real life conditions, in order to avoid any premature clogging between service intervals, even in the worst conditions.
Sogefi confirms its diesel fuel filtration expertise, increasing the Aftermarket product portfolio, covering more than 94 percent of the European car and light van fleet.
