EXTENSIVE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
The Diesel Guard anti-diesel theft range of products has evolved over a number of years within the context of the African Market. This market has provided I.T.S. with the perfect platform to develop a product to meet the stringent requirements that are required to ensure that the end result is a range of products that are tough, maintenance free and easy to install and at the same time providing a 100% solution to the prevention of costly diesel theft. I.T.S. has continued to develop these products in order to stay abreast of the new range of vehicles regularly introduced to the market by the various manufacturers.
EXPANSION OF RANGE
The Diesel Guard range has expanded to included non-removable drain plugs, pick up and return pipe covers, connecting hoses and automatic drain units to protect the diesel fuel in other vulnerable areas on the vehicles.
TOUGH AND MAINTENANCE FREE
The decision to manufacture in Stainless Steel was twofold:
1. Strength and durability
Whilst recognising that the decision to manufacture in Stainless Steel was going to add cost to the product and reduce profitability, it was concluded that the superior strength gained over mild steel or aluminium far outweighed the cost factor.
2. Maintenance free
The Product is corrosion resistant and given that the vehicles fitted with diesel guards are often operating in high corrosion environments this provides a “fit and forget” approach together with a unit that will in no way contaminate the diesel when corrosion sets in.
QUICK AND EASY INSTALLATION
The units are designed in such a way as to provide quick and easy installation that at the same time results in a “non-removable” unit. This is made possible by a combination of locating systems including special snap-off screws and adaptors with locking pins that secure the unit onto the existing filler neck of the vehicle. The purpose of this design is to prevent drilling and riveting wherever possible.
HIGH VOLUME PUMPING
The unique patented design of the top and bottom honeycomb grid systems together with the anti-splash extension slide and the air pressure vents allows for “High Volume” pumping which is a critical requirement for truck stops where high pressure bowser systems are used.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT
The significant advantage that this range of products has is that it provides a guaranteed return on investment within a very short space of time.
The simple maths of calculating the value of the number of litres lost on a daily basis versus the cost of a Diesel Guard System proves that the system pays for itself within a very short space of time.
