REDFORD, Mich. – Detroit Diesel Corporation has collaborated with ESOC (Environmentally Safe Oil Change) Commercial Truck, Inc., to develop an Environmentally Safe Fuel Filter Change system for its DD15(tm) and
DD13(tm) engines. ESOC is a Michigan Corporation that has been serving Detroit Diesel since 1994 with environmentally-safe engine maintenance systems.

The ESOC 350 was developed to prime the fuel system after the high pressure fuel pump replacement occurs. This device was designed to prime the fuel system with the fuel pressure being at least 70 psi for a minimum of two minutes to meet OEM specs. The ESOC 350 can also be used to prime the fuel system after a fuel filter change. One of the attributes of this device is to utilize the fuel from the engine, eliminating an outside source to fill the device with diesel fuel.

“ESOC Commercial Truck is delighted with the results and performance of the ESOC 350 to service and support Detroit Diesel programs. This has been a very exciting project that has been ongoing for more than 12 months. We are pleased to see this environmental application going to market,” said Vivek Bedi, managing director of ESOC Commercial Truck, Inc.

Another key benefit of the ESOC system is that it is safer for both technicians and the environment. The spill-free machine removes hazardous waste clean up and eliminates the need for technicians to handle the fuel.

“Our customers continually challenge us to find environmentally-safe solutions, and our ESOC system certainly meets and exceeds expectations,” said Drew Plant, manager, Support System Development, Daimler Trucks North America. “By collaborating with ESOC Commercial Truck, we have together created a system that keeps our technicians safer and benefits the environment.”

With more than 800 locations in North America, Detroit Diesel’s trained and qualified technicians are never far away. Its sophisticated parts and service network keeps locations stocked with genuine Detroit Diesel parts, Genuine Maintenance products, as well as reliabilt(r) remanufactured parts.
