SEMA eNews regularly collects new product press releases from companies to highlight each week. Below are this week's submissions.
Fuel Filter System
FST Performance announces the release of its RPM560 Big Deuce water-separating fuel filter system. The system is designed to filter down to three microns.
The filters are constructed to be ideal for racing where extra capacity is needed, including multiple-engine offshore boats, high-horsepower race engines, off-road/desert racing vehicles or any performance engine that needs a high-flow, reliable, dirt-free fuel supply.
Electroplated Grinding Wheels
Saint-Gobain Abrasives announces the introduction of its Norton Winter AEON Electroplated Grinding Wheel for high-precision applications in the automotive, medical and aerospace markets. The wheels are designed to be able to hold a profile tolerance of ± 5µm at a maximum wheel diameter of ~24-in. (600mm) and width ~12-in. (300mm), weighing up to 551 lbs. (250 kg).
Featuring a single usable abrasive layer design, the core surface of the wheels are mechanically fixed by an electrochemical process of nickel-deposition diamond or cBN particles. The layer design is constructed to provide high grit retention levels for long wheel life.
The wheel core is manufactured to be re-used. Once the abrasive grains are worn, the core of the wheel can be re-plated with new diamond or cBN grain in a continuous re-plating cycle.
Universal Electric Fans
PROFORM introduces its High-Performance Universal Electric Fans with Thermostat.
The fan is designed to keep performance up and temperatures chilled.
The kits are offered with the choice of straight-blade or S-blade style. All units feature a 15-in. diameter, 8-blade fan; heavy-duty, 12-volt motor; up to 2,800cfm air flow; and only a 14-amp draw.
Trailer Brake Controller
Mopar has released its trailer brake controller for the Jeep Gladiator. The controller may be retrofitted into Jeep Gladiators that are already on the road.
Installed in front of the transmission shift lever, the round controller knob is designed to provide a consistent look and feel with the vehicle’s interior.
The controller is engineered to give Jeep Gladiator owners the ability to activate the electronic brakes on properly equipped trailers.
Air-to-Coil Suspension Conversion Kit
Atlantic British launches its Air-to-Coil Suspension Conversion Kit for Land Rovers and Range Rovers. The kit includes all the components and hardware needed to replace the air suspensions.
The Electronic Air Suspension (EAS) Management Software is designed to keep Land Rover control systems fully-enabled, such as traction control, hill descent, stability control, ABS, headlight positioning and OEM diagnostics.
