TROY, Mich., Nov. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Meritor WABCO, a leader in integrated safety systems and efficiency technology for the North American commercial vehicle industry, is marking "America Recycles Day" with the release of a remanufactured System Saver™ air compressor for select trucks that use the MACK ASET engine.
"We've seen an increased demand from manufacturers for our System Saver products, and now we've efficiently remanufactured our air compressor for aftermarket use," said Pat Kealy, director, Aftermarket, Meritor WABCO. "Its quality is comparable to a new compressor ̶ and with the extra ecological benefit of recycling versus adding material to a landfill."
A typical compressor contains approximately 40 pounds of steel, iron and aluminum, which has the metal content equivalent of approximately 1,200 beverage cans. The remanufactured air compressor minimizes the amount of waste added to landfills and offers customers an alternative choice compared to a new unit.
WABCO is the original manufacturer and WABCO Reman Solutions, a part of WABCO, remanufactures the Mack ASET Compressor, making it the only Mack ASET Compressor on the market tested to the same strict specifications as an original OEM product. WABCO Reman Solutions takes each compressor through a rigorous teardown and inspection process, and it is thoroughly remanufactured using OEM components.
The remanufactured MACK ASET Compressor will be available through Meritor's Aftermarket group on January 2, 2014.
In addition, this MACK ASET Compressor (Part #: S911 153 0550X) is serviced through Meritor Aftermarket group at 888-725-9355 in the United States, 800-387-3889 in Canada or by visiting www.MeritorPartsOnline.com.
