So when customers buy genuine Perkins parts, they can be confident that the component they are buying is the right one for the job, is reliable and durable, and has been designed and manufactured to the original specification.
If the part you buy is just a copy of one of Perkins parts, you have no guarantee that it will be able to do the job of the original component.
Why use genuine parts? Well, whenever you fire up one of Perkins engines, you are putting hundreds of individual components through incredible stress.
The engines keep running reliably for years because of the quality of the original parts. The reason they have such a reputation for quality and durability is that each Perkins engine, and each of its components, has been through a full and incredibly rigorous development process. So each component will have been tested separately and as part of the engine for thousands of hours before it reaches you.
The oil filter plays a vital role in ensuring that the lubricants circulating around your engine and its allied parts are as clean as possible. The consequences of contaminated oil include wear on the engine caused by foreign bodies, which could lead to premature engine failure or major engine damage
Your engine will only work at its best if it’s sufficiently lubricated – and every moving part within it will come into contact with the engine oil.
The fuel filter ensures that the fuel entering the chamber is as clean as possible. The main role of a fuel filter is to prevent any unwanted materials from entering the fuel supply and it is a standard feature for all internal combustion engines.
The consequences of contaminated fuel include fuel injection pump failure, dirty and blocked nozzles, excessive smoke and reduced engine performance.
The air filter ensures that the air entering the combustion chamber is as clean as possible. The consequences of contaminated air include wear on the engine caused by foreign bodies and a less efficient combustion process. Perkins air filters are covered with 12 months warranty
