BMG Fluid Technology’s technical solutions comprise a wide range of fluid power components and systems, supported by the team’s broad expertise to ensure fluids – including air, oil, fuel and hydraulic oil – all operate within the required cleanliness standards.
BMG – a distributor of the Fleetguard filter brand, which is manufactured by Cummins Filtration – supplies and supports a comprehensive range of Fleetguard filters, especially designed for the transport sector, for both on- and off-road applications.
“As with any mechanical system, wear and tear is a certainty in hydraulic systems. Components that rely on specified tolerances can lose efficiency or sustain damage through poor filtration and leakage. In fact, particulate and water contamination is responsible for between 80-90% of all hydraulic system failures,” explains Hanli Schutte, Product Specialist Filtration, BMG. “Effective filtration is even more important in today’s environment, which demands greater efficiency from equipment to increase hydraulic performance.
“Because filtration is an effective defense against wear and tear of engines when contaminants are present, it is critical that effective filters are used to ensure optimum engine performance, reduced environmental impact, high efficiency and the extended service life of mobile equipment, protecting the owner’s investment. Without effective filtration, premature equipment failure is likely to occur, resulting in unnecessary downtime of equipment and costly replacement of parts.
“Cummins Filtration – known as a leader in the design and manufacture of diesel engines, filters, coolants and fuel additives for heavy-duty diesel engines – adds muscle to the Fleetguard brand.
OEMs, distributors and the end user have the assurance of dependability in filtration that meets high emission standards, protected by a superior warranty from the point of purchase through the recommended life of the product.
BMG’s Fleetguard range includes over 8,300 products, including air, lube, fuel and hydraulic filters. These filters are engineered to meet or exceed OEM specifications, ensuring maximum life of every engine or system.
Included in the Fleetguard range of filters are 4WD filter kits that contain an air filter, oil filter and lube filter for quick and easy servicing of South Africa’s favourite vehicle – the ‘bakkie.’ Cabin and pollen filters are also available.
BMG’s fluid technology services also include solutions for fuel and industrial filtration systems, hydraulics and pneumatics, lubrication, hydraulic hose and fittings, as well as instrumentation, pumps and industrial valves.
Through the company’s specialist skills – and a dependable stockholding of components, BMG is able to meet high demand from customers for dependable services, throughout the African continent.
