Designed and engineered in Australia, Ryco Filters has introduced a customised catchcan for the Isuzu N Series light commercial truck.
Ryco says the RCK400 Crankcase Filter Assembly Kit – also referred to as the Catchcan – has been tailored to the 2008 to 2018 Isuzu N Series with 4HK1 engine, and offers a range of benefits for owner operators and fleet owners.
According to Ryco, the Isuzu RCK400 Catchcan Kit includes all the parts required for the technician, including the bracket, moulded emissions hoses and joiners and clamps, when fitting or replacing the crankcase filter. An additional length of emission hose is included if required to fit in an alternative location on the truck.
Ryco says the benefits of installing a crankcase filter system are numerous; they remove oil and impurities from the blow-by gases generated by the engine, prevent oil and soot contamination entering the clean air intake, protect turbo chargers, avert oil build up in intercoolers, and keep the engine components clean. Having a catchcan fitted results in a better performing, more efficient engine that helps improve fuel economy and reduces contaminants in the atmosphere. The RCK400 Crankcase Filter Assembly Kit is therefore an important protective product for operators of Isuzu N Series trucks.
“The Isuzu Catchcan is an innovative new product that has been designed, engineered and tested right here in Australia by Ryco’s research and development, and engineering departments,” said Ryco Filters General Manager, Engineering and Innovation, Alastair Hampton.
“A genuine performance product, the Catchcan plays an important role in the on-going running of your vehicle and ensures longevity.
“The benefits of fitting the RCK400 Catchcan Filter Assembly Kit to your Isuzu are conclusive, and is just another reason way Ryco is Australia’s favourite filter brand.”
Clever in its design and easy to fit, the mounting bracket is designed in two parts, which allows the whole unit to be attached and removed quickly. The RCK400 mounts the crankcase filter assembly externally on the truck’s chassis, making inspection and servicing easy for the technician. Further to this, a tap has been incorporated into the sump to allow for the easy draining of contaminants.
“We recently drained the Catchcan from an Isuzu N Series truck that had travelled less than 10,000 kilometres to see how much oil and contaminants had been collected,” said Ryco Filters General Manager Commercial, Nathan Grant.
“A 300-millilitre pool of contaminated oil had been collected in the Catchcan, oil that has not been circulated back through the intake system. If this hadn’t occurred, the oil would have caused carbon build up that restricts the air intake, resulting in power and efficiency loss. These N series- 4HK1 engines don’t have a factory PCV filter so this is a great example how Ryco filters have created a solution for our customers. Fitting the RCK400 will protect your investment and reduce maintenance costs.”
The Ryco RCK400 Catchcan Kit for the Isuzu N series is available nationally now.
