Bespoke fume extraction system to enable in-house vehicle DPF regeneration
As part of our workshop installation design scheme, and comprised within our LEV extraction system, CCS created 2 bespoke fume extraction points to enable in-house vehicle DPF regeneration. Initiating the regneration process cleans the DPF, keeping National Express’ vehicles running and in good condition. This process requires vehicles to be run at heavy load within the workshop, generating heat for a sufficient length of time to burn off particulates deposited inside the filter. Our bespoke LEV system incorporates hoses and fans which can handle the high fume volumes and demands created by the regeneration process.
Oil monitoring system to improve management of workshop resources
CCS’ garage equipment installation for National Express includes a leading oil monitoring system which will benefit the client’s operations and improve the management of oil on each job. Custom-designed fresh and waste oil tanks installed by CCS Garage Equipment at National Express, Birmingham Oil monitoring and management systems help the workshop team to control the use of oil, keeping track of fluid which is dispensed to prevent unauthorised use, wastage and reduce costly errors. The technology is integrated with the workshop’s management system, enabling specific allocations to be given on each job, creating accurate usage records and to monitor stock levels. National Express will benefit from more efficient and more accurate fluid management, together with reduced wastage and misuse.
