The Air and Fuel Department of Jasper Engines & Transmissions has moved to a new location within the Wernsing Road remanufacturing facility.
Sales of air and fuel components has steadily increased, and JASPER believes it could be one of the company’s top departments in the next five to ten years. In preparation for this overall Diesel Division growth, JASPER recently completed a 12,000 square foot expansion project at the Wernsing Road facility.
The Air and Fuel Department includes the remanufacturing of fuel injection pumps and high pressure oil pumps. Turbocharger remanufacturing was formerly located within Jasper West, a building ¼ mile west of the Wernsing Road location.
The completed expansion project allows the Air and Fuel division to be located within one location and take advantage of shared resources and shared labor support. “The transition has been very smooth to this point,” said Ryan Dooley, Jasper Diesel Division Manager. “The turbo side took about one week to move their machinery and tools from Jasper West to the new location. They are currently remanufacturing 24 turbos a day.”
Over the last three years, turbocharger remanufacturing has doubled in size each of those three years. Dooley says the new expansion has room for continual growth, with additional turbochargers already undergoing research and development.
“When we look to the future, 75% of all vehicles in Europe currently have a turbo in them, gas or diesel,” he said. “By 2026, it’s projected that 75% of all vehicles in the United States will have a turbo. Automotive manufacturers are moving to gas-powered turbos, not only to generate power but for efficiency needs as well.”
Dooley projects that JASPER will produce its first remanufactured gas-powered turbo by second quarter of 2017.
In addition, Dooley said the original fuel room was streamlined by breaking down the remanufacturing processes into smaller chunks of work, from disassembly and cleanup to assembly and calibration. “These improvements have reduced the size of the fuel room to two rooms from four, and will increase the quality of the work,” he said.
Diesel air and fuel components offered by JASPER include high pressure oil pumps, like the Bosch Rexroth Pump and Shepard Pump, the Stanadyne DS and DB2 pumps, along with a variety of Caterpillar Pumps. Every fuel injection pump is thoroughly tested and calibrated using sophisticated test equipment.
All Bosch injection pumps are calibrated on a state-of-the-art Bosch 815 calibration stand. HEUI high pressure oil pumps are tested on a custom-built test stand to provide a live simulation of in-the-vehicle operation.
Injectors include the HEUI 7.3 and 466, the 6.0 and 6.4 Bosch Common Rail and other popular applications.
As a Service Dealer for both Bosch and Stanadyne, JASPER’s Diesel Air and Fuel Component Division employs Associates who have been trained in original equipment specifications and processes.
JASPER is a Service Dealer for Borg Warner and remanufactures, and stocks, most popular Borg Warner turbocharger applications. JASPER also remanufactures Garrett and Holset applications, plus many more. A core balancer and state-of-the-art component balancer are used in the remanufacturing process of every turbocharger. This assures exact component balance in order to assure optimum turbocharger performance and life.
In addition to the air and fuel components, JASPER offers accessories for the very popular International/Ford 6.0L diesel engine. These accessory items include heads, FICM (Fuel Injection Control Module) and EGR cooler.
