Area Sales Manager, Louis Dowson, has just handed over a new Jaltest marine package to D B Marine Essex Ltd, Colchester.
The guys used Jaltest software to diagnose a fuel pressure deviation fault on a local Essex Fishery Patrol vessel with an Iveco-FPT engine.
Here's what Louis Dowson had to say regarding the Jaltest Marine Package:
"The customer had highlighted a suspected fuel issue with a vessel which happened only at a certain engine speed & load. We decided to take the vessel for a test run off the coast of Brightlingsea after discovering the fault code on Jaltest. This test enabled us to display live and required vehicle data on Jaltest software, showing what the fuel pressures were against what they should have been, clearly showing a substantial deviation. With the help of Jaltest and Eclipse technical support teams, we were able to provide the relevant "path to repair" for our customer, hopefully leading to a successful fix."
Thank you for your business!
