Sage Oil Vac is begging the question: Why are mechanics still relying on a glorified bolt to serve as an oil drain plug?
Oil is the lifeblood of any engine (including a wind turbine’s gearbox). With a century’s worth of innovation and technological advances, why has the oil drain blog not changed as well?
Sage Oil Vac is offering a drain plug replacement for a wide range of vehicles, both on the road and job site. The company said the drain plugs are engineered to provide cleaner, faster and safer lube changes.
A Femco replacement drain valve, as it is called, threads into the oil pan as usual. However, to change oil one simply removes the dust cover by hand and connects the drainer, without the need of wrenches or other tools.
Designed to ensure maximum flow rate, a Femco Drain Valve “streamlines” fluid changes, creating greater efficiency for users. The valve also eliminates stripped heads or threads, allows a mechanics hands to stay clean and decreases the chance of spills.
Safety is a key component of Femco’s benefits, Sage Oil Vac said. The valve helps mechanics avoid skinned knuckles from slipping wrenches, eye contamination and burns from hot oil. By using the drain plug, there is no need to wait for oil to cool: the valve allows one to drain the oil while it is hot, giving a better flow rate and preventing particles from settling inside the engine.
