On our Aussie roads, there’s a lot your truck deals with. Dirt, sand, dust, even dirty fuel will all affect the performance of your engine over time.
But it’s the microscopic particles within these materials that we often don’t think about. And while they don’t grab your immediate attention like a misfiring engine, a decrease in your acceleration power, or a leak under the cab, they’re just as important. In fact, they’re two sides of the same coin: these immediate issues all stem back to dirty, clogged, or old filtration technology.
And while you might not think about your filters as often as you should, Cummins Filtration do.
As one of the world’s leading designers of air, fuel, hydraulic, lube filtration, and coolant, Cummins Filtration are on a mission to help you keep your truck or your fleet running as efficiently as possible.
And to fight those pesky microparticles causing you problems, their flagship NanoNet filters have you covered. Made up of woven nanofibres which capture more of contaminants, eliminating unnecessary wear within your engine, and improving the performance of your systems by up to 13 times that of standard filters.
For Fleetguard, it’s not about keeping the information to themselves. To create a better, more efficient industry, they provide a range of training courses to help boost the knowledge and understanding around this crucial element of the trucking business.
Their training will help you and your staff become experts on just how important filtration is to your fleet, and how getting the right media within your filters can help you, your clients, and your customers.
After all, without the right knowledge and information, you could be damaging your engines and systems every time you fill the tank, change your lubricants, or turn on the engine. That might sound alarmist, but it’s true, which is why Fleetguard are so keen on delivering cross-industry training.
And it’s not just about keeping your fleet running smoothly. With the right training, you’ll have more expert knowledge about how filtration works as a whole, and you can be better informed when talking to your customers and clients about the right parts for their machinery.
You’re upskilling yourself, and your teams, and developing a knowledge base that you can use and transfer seamlessly across a range of roles and industries (if you’re looking for a new challenge).
Fleetguard training opportunities are available for all levels, so however much you feel you need to learn, they’ve got you covered. And it’s all completely free. Their only motive is to upskill and improve the industry’s knowledge on the importance of correct filtration.
