WIX Filters: Proactive Molecular Hydraulic Oil Water Absorber

WIX Filters Launches Proactive Molecular Hydraulic Oil Water Absorber

Product prevents water problems before they start.

WixOilAbsorber

GASTONIA, N.C. – In response to industry and customer needs, WIX Filters, a global manufacturer of filtration products, has launched what it says is the world’s first proactive molecular hydraulic oil water absorber.

WIX’s hydraulic oil water absorber offers ongoing protection by removing all forms of water – bound, free and emulsified – in all hydraulic oils. The new product also:

* Neutralizes acids that cause metal surface corrosion and rust
* Absorbs peroxides which lead to oxidation of oil and degradation of rubber components
* Stops hydrogen embrittlement (metal pitting) and oil viscosity variance issues
* Stops hydrolysis in synthetic esters as well as bacteria and algae contamination

“It goes without saying that water is the enemy of fuel and oil systems,” said Donald Chilton, vice president of product management for WIX Filters. “The complications water causes can lead to significant setbacks for our customers and their businesses. We set out to create something that would prevent the water problem before it starts, and this product does just that.”

To use, simply attach the tether clip to the inside of the filler cap for retrieval. There should be free and clear access through the tank opening of 1.25 inches or greater before inserting the unit into the tank. Once the water absorber exceeds 300 ppm, remove the tether clip from the tank filler cap, remove the tube from the tank and repeat the installation steps.

The absorber is available to treat 20-, 40- and 60-gallon tank sizes. In terms of a replacement schedule, if there is heavy equipment use and/or high humidity, the water absorber should be replaced every 30 days. If the equipment is used more intermittently, or every 120 days, and if the water absorber is simply being stored, it should be replaced annually.

“These are approximate recommendations and will vary based on the equipment and its use,” Chilton said.

Customer Service: How It’s Done

Customer service should be your number one priority, and it all starts with the greeting.

This is always an important topic to discuss, because I consider excellent customer service one of the most important tools you can have to earn trust, respect and repeat business from the customers that come through your door. Whether that customer is do-it-yourselfer from across town or the professional repair shop across the street, your business depends on a solid relationship.It’s a subject that I am passionate about, and it’s one that many people are losing touch with. Whether you are communicating to someone in person, on the phone or using some type of social media, good customer service and bad can both exist. You can’t afford the latter, so this is the first in a series of topics which can and should be shared from the front of the shop to the back. No matter which role you hold, you represent the shop and yourself. Customer service should be your number one priority.First on the list is the greeting. From the second a customer walks in the door, they need to know you appreciate them coming in and how important they are to your business. First impressions are everything and here’s the correct way to do it each and every time: look them directly in the eye, smile and say hello!Of course, you can say “Good morning” or “Welcome to Joe’s Autocare,” but it should be a formal greeting and the most important thing is that you have smiled, looked them in the eye and recognized that they have walked through the door.You should always retain a formal greeting until you are on a first-name basis with a customer. Only once you have established that level of relationship is it OK to use the less formal greeting of “Hi,” followed by the person’s name.This greeting does more than just indicate respect and appreciation for someone walking through the door. Most likely there are customers both new and old who are in earshot of your conversation. For newer customers, this continues to build rapport and reinforce their positive view of your shop; they see that you demonstrate respect and treat everyone in the same manner. For repeat customers, even ones that have been coming for years, the greeting is important because the way you treat them is the reason they continue to come.And when a long-time customer comes in and you greet them with “Hi [First Name],” this indicates your appreciation for them and that you’re glad to see them as a person, more than just a customer. New customers that witness this will see that your repeat customers are comfortable enough to be on a first-name basis, another indication of the trust they have in you.
