Sigma Designs Fuel Filter Testing Systems for Desert Vehicles
Imagine your car breaking down on the turnpike. Now imagine a similar breakdown but this time you are in a military vehicle in the desert during a critical mission. The clogging of a diesel fuel filter can be a real setback in such circumstances. Sigma Design Company was hired to develop and fabricate a state-of-the-art Fuel Filtration Testing System that tests diesel fuel filters for efficiency and dirt holding and retention capacity for mission critical vehicles to be used by the Egyptian Army. Sigma was selected due to their special expertise in applied engineering and the filtration of all types of substances – such as soil, water, blood and other fluids. Parts were designed in-house and then assembled in Sigma’s 20,000 square-foot Technology Commercialization and New Product Manufacturing Center.
Sigma is also the manufacturer of the test system.
