3 WAYS TO SAVE WITH CAT REMAN INJECTORS

 
Sense something’s wrong with your injectors? As an injector ages, it gives you clear signs that it’s nearing the end of its life:
 
  • A leak may mix fuel with exhaust or with oil
  • Heavy wear might cause the engine to smoke
  • A clogged fuel injector could lead to irregular RPMs and sputtering power

Whether brought on by poor-quality fuels, low peak injection pressure (PIP), irregular nozzle-tip flow or other issues, your engine could offer less fuel efficiency, run extremely hot, fail to start, stop short or misfire. In any case, you will need a replacement quick.

The good thing is: Cat Reman products are remanufactured to provide maximum performance and staying power. Let’s look at three ways you can save with Cat Reman injectors.

 

1. ULTIMATE ENGINE PROTECTION

 

These aren’t retooled parts made to provide a quick fix. Cat Reman products are designed to last.

Once a customer returns a used core — or engine component — to Caterpillar, it goes through an extensive remanufacturing procedure at one of our Cat Reman facilities. There, cores get disassembled down to their individual components.

Then, piece parts undergo a thorough cleaning process. Based on the component remanufacturing criteria, components are sorted to decide the application of state-of-the-art salvage techniques like skin-cut machining — which restores the injector tappet and nozzle case contact surfaces — and laser cladding — which resurfaces components to meet original specifications. After salvage, all components go through our multi-stage final cleaning process before assembly.

Throughout the remanufacturing process, Cat Reman critical components like plungers and valves are hard coated against excessive wear. This covering promotes up to 3 times the life expectancy of non-coated components. With this longevity in your equipment, you’re less likely to spend time and money on repairs.

2. PROVEN QUALITY

 

It’s the quality that sets Cat Reman injectors apart. They come with:

  • Brand new control valves and nozzle check valves
  • Coated plungers
  • 100% conformance to Caterpillar Injector group component and test specs
  • Reground tappet surfaces and control body valve seats as well as body sealing, stop sealing and body guide sealing faces
  • Up-to-date tip material
  • Matched components — down to the micron level

Our quality experts keep a close eye on each part at every stop in its journey. As the used core is received, it moves through the assembly line and goes through multiple quality gates before joining the supply chain. Throughout the salvage process and assembly, inspections ensure fuel delivery, peak injection pressure (PIP), timing and assembly leakage are all within our strict standards. Before they receive final approval, the functionality of Cat Reman injectors is tested on a certified performance bench. All the way through, our equipment and processes match what Caterpillar uses for the manufacture of new parts.

To prove that Cat Reman injectors provide superior performance, Caterpillar tested them against competitive products. As a result, over 85% of the competitive injectors failed to meet our rigorous Cat injector specifications. Cat Reman injectors are in their own league.

3. AVAILABILITY

 

Lastly, it’s the incredible accessibility of Cat Reman injectors that make them worth the investment. With great off-the-shelf availability, these remanufactured parts are ready to ship and easy to drop into your equipment.

Caterpillar streamlines the overhaul process for you and your technicians, so you don’t have to worry about an intensive rebuilding, cleaning or inspection process for Cat Reman components. It’s an ideal way to reduce downtime, and it all comes with a same-as-new, 12-month Caterpillar Parts Warranty*. Through this coverage, you get your work done knowing that you’re protected from some of the unexpected fees and eventual repair needs that might loom over other injector kits.

So, now you know. You don’t have to run your equipment to failure. Take proactive steps and stay ahead of potentially costly downtime by considering Cat Reman injectors — designed to offer like new performance for a fraction of the cost of new parts.

*Limitations may apply. For complete details about the applicable Caterpillar Limited Warranty, contact an authorized Cat dealer.
