Preheat Engineering, manufacturers of PEREGRINE engine pre-heaters, pride themselves on the long-lasting reliability of their products.
But it is not often that they can display actual proof.
Simon Gristwood, Preheat’s Managing Director, took a phone call from a customer that needed a replacement preheater for his Volvo TD121.
The customer wasn’t sure which preheater he required, as it had been a very long time since he installed it, he just knew it was a Peregrine product.
Simon asked him if he could provide the serial number. When he looked it up, he discovered it had been manufactured on 20/6/88 and supplied nearly 30 years ago!! When questioned, the customer said that he had been very impressed with his preheater and had had no problems in all that time.
A replacement new 1500-watt PEREGRINE P4TL.1 preheater was sent to him within 24 hours of his phone call as a replacement.
When we thanked him and said we would look forward to helping him with his next order, he laughed and said with his experience of Peregrine heaters it wouldn’t be in his lifetime!!
A very happy customer!
So, at Preheat Engineering, we really do get you started quickly and running for MUCH longer!
The P4TL.1 preheater shown in the pictures is the same one fitted to a Volvo TD121 engine on a generator. It has not been cleaned up at all, just left it in the same condition as it was returned.
