Breathe easy with effective cabin filter protection

2020-march-cabin1In this time of heightened health and hygiene awareness drivers and passengers are even more conscious of the air they are breathing in a vehicle. Just about every vehicle on the road now has a cabin filter to clean air before it enters the cabin, but if this filter is blocked or dirty it means the in-car air is poor quality and could pose a health hazard. Dirty filters can also harbour bacteria and can cause issues for allergy sufferers and people with respiratory problems.

If a filter has not been changed recently, or if it has never been changed as is often the case, it is likely to look like the filter on the left. Effective protection can only be guaranteed by having a clean filter like the one on the right. Which would you rather you and your customers breathe through?

New to range DAYCO Tensioners and Pulleys

2020-march-daycoADE is delighted to announce the availability of the DAYCO Tensioners and Pulleys range. These are original quality components that perform to the very highest standards and the range covers a huge variety of applications.  

Modern engines not only have to produced increased performance from often much smaller spaces and capacities, but also feature far more auxillary and accessory systems. It is therefore vital that the control components for accessory devices, with both fixed and automatic tensioning, must meet the growing needs of the vehicle manufacturers in terms of:

  • Increasingly reduced workspaces
  • Higher temperatures
  • Continuous stress
  • Increase in the component replacement interval

This means quality of tensioners and pulleys is vital and as an OE supplier Dayco quality is second to none. The range features;

FIXED TENSIONERS: The final tension on the belt is applied through the correct setting of the tensioner and remains constant over time. The belt tension is therefore determined during installation. Here the Dayco DTM Tensiometer is recommended to ensure that the system functions correctly.

AUTOMATIC TENSIONERS: These can be spring or hydraulic. They are dynamic tensioners because once properly installed, they are able to continuously adapt to the operating conditions of the engine and optimize the belt tension according to the different stresses received from the engine, in all operating conditions.

DLER PULLEYS: These are pulleys with or without support that help the belt circuit, effectively contributing to the restraint of misalignment and noise reduction.

Original quality or equivalent to the original quality Dayco tensioners and pulleys are now available from ADE.
