Sogefi has confirmed it supplies diesel filters for seven of the top ten best-selling light commercial vehicles (LCVs) in 2019 – Ford Transit, Renault Traffic, Citroen Berlingo, PSA Partner and Opel / Vauxhall Vivaro.
LCV car parc increased of more than 2.1 million vehicles in 2019, marking the seventh consecutive year of growth across the European Union.
Sogefi’s diesel fuel filter module is fitted on several LCVs from the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi (RNM) group.
Sogefi has developed the filter module made up of a robust steel bowl riveted with a metallic/plastic head, incorporating a water level sensor and an optimized electrical fuel heater to guarantee reliable starts even on the coldest mornings whatever fuel quality is being used.
Based on Sogefi’s Diesel3Tech technology, the filter protects both engine and injection system, even under extreme water contamination levels.
Diesel3Tech separates water droplets (down to 10µm) from fuel and stores water in a dedicated water tank.
Once targeted water level is reached, water in fuel sensor lights up a warning light on the dashboard.
Separated water can be removed from the water tank through the drain screw.
The filter element, thanks to exclusive Sogefi’s media pleating technology, offers dust holding capacity in a reduced footprint.
Thanks to the riveted construction, the filter is sealed during assembly in a clean white room and can’t be contaminated prior to be assembled on vehicle.
This way during service the final customer benefits from Sogefi’s cleanliness experience built on OEM most stringent standards.
