There are only a few South African companies that are able to repair cutting edge diesel fuel injection systems that have entered the market over the years, and Reef Fuel Injection Services (RFI) continues to grow its reputation as a leader in the field.

RFI is an authorised service agent to all leading manufacturers of diesel fuel injection systems, including Bosch, Delphi, Denso and Stanadyne, while also being acknowledged as a local leader in Caterpillar diesel fuel injection systems.

Director of RFI, Andrew Yorke, says this leading diesel fuel injection system services company continues to invest heavily in the skills and capacities needed to provide a comprehensive repair and calibration service at its premises in Johannesburg, Gauteng.

“We continue to demonstrate that we have a thorough understanding of the latest systems and electronics that go hand-in-hand with current fuel injection system technologies, keeping us at the forefront of this service in the market,” says Yorke.

In addition to overhauling and calibrating all makes of diesel injectors and diesel injector pumps, the company is the preferred specialist in salvaging common rail injectors and fuel pumps. Its service offering covers the entire fuel injection componentry, ranging from a single cylinder to multi-cylinder conventional and electronic components.

These services are supplied to all relevant markets, starting with light passenger vehicle transport all the way through to the demanding operators of mining equipment fleets and long-distance transport companies.

One of RFI’s’ major competitive edges in the industry is its close business affiliations to all the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and access to all of their specifications.

In fact, all RFI’s repairs are backed by an OEM warranty. In many instances, Yorke says the company has also been appointed to handle warranty claims on behalf of the OEM dealers.

The company’s leading position in the market is mirrored by its ability to remanufacture a diesel fuel injector to zero hour specification. These units have been subjected to ongoing testing where they have performed at the same levels as new systems, he reports.

Reef Fuel Injection Services is one of few companies that offers electronic common rail injector calibration.

Meanwhile, the company’s service exchange programme is critical for many of its customers who operate in very demanding industries, especially long distance and heavy haulage transport companies. This programme offers remanufactured fuel injectors and/or fuel pumps for immediate installation while RFI assesses, analyses and remanufactures the damaged units, reducing unwanted downtime and interruptions to operations.

Clearly, ongoing research and development, as well as investment into specialised equipment and skills, continues to pay for RFI. Combined with the capabilities of sister company, Metric Automotive Engineering, a reputable remanufacturer of diesel engine components, RFI has cemented its dominant position in diesel engine technology.
