Regular oil changes are key to optimising the performance and lifetime of your vehicles and machines. The Femco® oil drainage system, can be used for draining many fluids. Examples include engine oil, gearbox oil, hydraulic oil and coolant. The condition of these fluids is essential to safe guarding the performance of your vehicles and machines, regular fluid changes also extend their lifetime. This page provides information about the fluids you can change using Femco® oil drain plugs. Femco® oil drain plugs are the perfect solution for efficient oil changes. They also help you prevent problems with seized or broken plugs and spillages onto the floor. Our oil drainage systems enable you to change oil and other hot fluids quickly, simply and without causing pollution.
Engine oil changes
Regular oil changes are essential to the performance of your equipment. Engine oil lubricates the moving parts of the engine. This reduces wear of the moving parts, prevents engine problems and extends the lifetime of the engine. Engine oil removes metal particles and combustion residues. Changing the oil maintains its required viscosity and ensures optimised lubrication. Fresh oil also reduces the fuel consumption, and provides 60% of the engine cooling.
Topping up coolant
Femco® drain plugs can also be used to top up or change the coolant of your vehicles and machines. Coolant carries the heat from the engine away, which optimises the performance and prevents overheating. Besides all this coolant, contains antifreeze and other additives that protect the engine. Coolant also contains agents that prevent rust and corrosion of the engine block. Our Compact oil drain plugs are widely used with environment-friendly Euro6 engines, to change the coolant and engine oil.
Gearbox oil changes
Regular maintenance is important to gearbox performance. Gearbox oil, like engine oil, reduces friction between moving parts and prevents wear. Fresh gearbox oil also cools the gearbox and prevents overheating. Timely oil changes also reduce the number of gearbox problems and extend their life. Femco® oil drain plugs also enable you to check the gearbox oil quality between oil changes.
Hydraulic oil changes
Hydraulic oil’s main function is to transfer pressure in hydraulic systems. Hence the quality of the hydraulic oil is key to the performance of your hydraulic system. Oil changes reduce the friction between moving parts and prevent wear and overheating. Femco® Draintechnology has oil drain plugs for all hydraulic systems which make it quick and easy to change the hydraulic oil.
