Filtration Hits The Road As FRAM Debuts Mobile Education Unit

FRAM launches summer-long tour with new mobile unit designed to engage, educate and train consumers about filtration.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — FRAM Filtration today announced the schedule of events for a 2013 cross-country tour that will feature a new mobile education unit equipped with interactive displays around oil and air filtration and FRAM’s products. The traveling unit, developed by FRAM and Prestone, will visit popular automotive enthusiast events, training centers and retail locations across the country.
“Our goal is to cultivate meaningful relationships with those who invest time and consideration into the maintenance and performance of vehicles,” said Josh Gordon, marketing director for FRAM Filtration. “We anticipate using the FRAM mobile unit as a tool to bring filtration education and information about FRAM’s quality products to our retail customers, commercial garages and shop owners, technicians and car enthusiasts everywhere.”
The FRAM mobile education unit includes a sprinter van equipped with video screens for easily accessible on-site trainings and a 24-foot branded trailer that houses FRAM’s product and filtration displays. FRAM’s air filter display uses a hands-on model to illustrate how an air filter helps eliminate dirt and dust particles from a vehicle’s air flow, and the FRAM oil filter display uses fiber optics to trace the path of oil through an engine and filter. Each display also features examples of FRAM’s oil and air filter products.
The FRAM mobile education unit will travel to retail locations across the country for customer events. FRAM will also bring the mobile education unit to popular automotive events throughout the summer including the Car Craft Summer Nationals, Woodward Dream Cruise, NOPI Nationals and O’Reilly Street Machine Nationals.
“We want to bring filtration discussion to the frontlines,” said Gordon.

In the case of cordless lights, there is a lot more, starting with more light! The light comes from Light Emitting Diode, or LED, technology. When they were first invented, LEDs were a revolutionary development of electrical science, affecting virtually every aspect of our lives.

Now LED lights are everywhere, and we’re all familiar with them, even in our homes, but the automotive industry has reaped the benefits as much as, if not more than, any other industry. Just like a diode, LEDs allow current flow in only one direction. When current, or electron flow occurs, photons are released.
