Hi-tech insight for motor vehicle students
21st October 2010 12:43pm - Return to press releases
Motor vehicle students at East Riding College were given a fascinating insight into highly specialised fuel injection refurbishment equipment and how this can help in reducing carbon emissions from modern vehicles.
Bob Hopkinson from industry leader ASNU, the UK-based manufacturer of refurbishment equipment, visited the Beverley and Bridlington campuses to give learners a talk and demonstration on their hi-tech fuel injector diagnostic and cleaning equipment.
He demonstrated how the kit had benefits for engine performance, fuel efficiency and, as a result, the environment.
Student Lewis Noonan, who participated in the ASNU carbon footprint programme, said: "It was really interesting to see how the ASNU system works and to get some in-depth knowledge of fuel injectors and how to maintain them.
"Fuel injectors play a really important role in maintaining the engine's performance and reducing pollution and so having a greater understanding of them is really helping me in my course."
Dave Skelly, head of motor vehicle and engineering, said: "Bob gave the learners and the staff a very interesting talk on how the equipment works and how it can make a big difference to maintaining engine efficiency and helping to reduce the environmental impact of the motor vehicle.
"This kind of insight is really beneficial to the students who can demonstrate to potential employers their knowledge of an increasingly important element of vehicle maintenance."
