Hytec Fluid Technology appointed distributor of Femco oil drain equipment

Hytec Fluid Technology (HFT) has been appointed a distributor of Femco oil drainage equipment in South Africa. Femco oil drain plugs, developed over 30 years, are designed to deliver spill-free toolless oil changes. They are ideal for use across multiple sectors, from transport and agriculture to energy and earth moving, in any mobile or industrial fluid change applications.

Femco’s oil drain plugs enable 100% spill-free oil changes, for a cleaner and safer workplace. “Additionally, they dramatically reduce downtime by allowing oil changes done on site,” says Alex Venter, Key Account Manager, HFT. They are designed to replace existing plugs on any drain valve, whether in engines, gearboxes, hydraulic tanks, radiators, axles, drivelines, fluid tanks, or gensets. These solid brass, ISO 9000-certified plugs are temperature resistant, facilitating fast oil drainage without any delay normally required for the oil to cool first. “This is all backed by Femco’s lifetime warranty,” adds Venter.

The addition of the Femco range to HFT’s product portfolio is in line with the company’s goals to extend equipment and machinery service intervals, maximise uptime and reduce the cost of ownership.

At present, HFT stocks select products from the Femco range, with plans to add more product lines to its portfolio as demand grows. Currently held in stock are Femco’s original oil drain plugs; compact oil drain plugs; click drain oil plugs; XL oil drain plugs and non-drip oil plugs. All of these fit easily on most standard drain hoses, and HFT can also supply customised drainers as required, including angled or extended drain connectors or special adapters.

All Femco oil drain plugs from HFT are supplied with fitted magnets, which can be inspected for metal fragments after oil draining to ensure oil system health. HFT supports mobile servicing with the use of Femco’s specialised evacuation units, and it has the capability to manufacture evacuation units as required.

Femco oil drain plugs are available for order from HFT, with a lead time of between one and two weeks. “A short training session is recommended. We can facilitate this in-house, online or on-site,” explains Venter. Additionally, HFT will support any Femco purchase with specification advice, installation assistance and on-going support.

HFT is a Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group company.
