A Sound Choice for the Environment

As consumers become ever mindful of their environmental impact, Carwood explains how remanufactured products have become increasingly favoured.

There is an increased recognition worldwide of the importance of remanufacturing which retains and recycles raw materials. This process uses up to 85% less energy than new production, thus reducing environmental impact. Taking old diesel injectors and pumps and remanufacturing them as a service exchange unit comes at no detriment to the quality but does have the advantage of reducing financial costs for the customer.

50 Years of Experience

Carwood holds over 50 years of experience in remanufacturing, with service exchange diesel injectors and pumps available for passenger cars, LCV, HGV, agricultural and off-highway applications. Carwood diesel technicians are trained and approved by the OE diesel fuel injection manufacturers. All units are tested using the OE approved test benches from Bosch and Hartridge, using the OE test plan data for Bosch, Delphi, Denso and VDO.

6 Stages of the Carwood Service Exchange Process:

1. Strip down the unit for cleaning and component assessment.
2. Replace all service wear, critical components and failed parts.
3. Re-assemble in a Class 7 ISO:14644-1 accredited clean room facility.
4. Test in OE approved test facility equipped with the latest Bosch and Hartridge test benches.
5. Validate and code unit.
6. Laser engrave and label unit for full traceability before packaging.
