FLO Components partners with RPM Industries
By Andrew Macklin
May 13, 2016 – FLO Components Ltd. announced its new partnership with RPM Industries LLC to sell and install their complete product line of centralized fleet fluid maintenance systems, effective May 1, 2016. With the RPM Industries product line, FLO Components Ltd. has a complete range of engine pre-lubrication and fluid evacuation technologies that automate routine maintenance of heavy equipment to save owners and dealers time and money.
“Routine maintenance has become anything but routine”, said Mike Deckert, vice-president of FLO Components. “Keeping your fleet in peak operating condition can be difficult and time consuming. Machines sit idle for hours during ‘simple’ oil changes. Technicians risk injury removing hot oil filters and climbing under or around the machines. There is also the problem of oil spills causing environmental contamination. The QuickFit system offers a simple solution for all of that.”
The heart of the new product line is the QuickFit system, according to FLO’s marketing specialist Gabriel Lopez. “In spite of all the technological advancements over the years, people are still doing oil changes on their equipment the way they did back in the 1950’s. RPM Industries’ patented QuickFit system is a simple and effective way to change oil, transmission and hydraulic fluids from a single, ground-level connection, without taking too much time, risking unnecessary injury or environmental fines. The QuickFit system incorporates the PERT process to: 1) Purge the filters with compressed air so that old filters can be removed and clean filters can be installed cleanly and safely with no spills or burns; 2) Evacuate the sump directly to the final waste container; 3) Refill the engine via its new filters and 4) Timestamp the service to automatically document the maintenance event.”
“At FLO Components, we provide turnkey solutions to take away our customers’ pain. The RPM Industries line of centralized fleet fluid maintenance systems further enhances FLO Components’ ability to help customers protect their equipment and employees while improving productivity”, added Deckert. “With just one fitting per compartment, the QuickFit system allows you to service most machines in less than 30 minutes. It makes fluid maintenance cleaner, safer and faster for all makes and models. Because the process is repeatable, it’s easier for you to schedule and plan routine PM services. Maintenance becomes easier, your productivity goes up and the risk of spills and contamination is virtually eliminated.”
