AC Compressors are the most vital part for running the air conditioner in your equipment. This blog will outline Sprinter AC compressors and will provide a PDF with OEM part numbers and corresponding models.
Sprinter AC Compressors Features & Benefits:
Manufactured using OE specifications & standards
Quiet Efficient Operation
Decreased horsepower drain due to lightweight piston design
PowerEdge Diesel After-treatment, or DPF units, is used to retain soot, a byproduct of diesel engines. In addition, Diesel Particulate Filters meet 99% of the demand for DPFs. DPFs reduce soot emissions by 85% meaning that they are extremely effective.
PowerEdge uses high end materials to ensure the quality of their DPFs. Materials include:
High-grade stainless steel – improve durability
Advanced filter coating – reduce active regeneration
Tested to reduce backpressure – enhanced performance (85% of DPM, or soot, is removed)
Increased thermal efficiency as well as stability
Three year / unlimited mileage warranty
Our most popular DPF units include the following part numbers. Click on the links below to learn more!
Do you operate a co-gen plant? You need top quality spark plugs which outperform the competition. DENSO is one of the world’s leading innovators for ignition technology. DENSO provides a variety of different plugs perfect for co-gen applications.
Why is DENSO So Important?
DENSO is an automotive components manufacturer. They are one of the world’s leading innovators for ignition technology. A part that DENSO manufacturers is their Iridium CoGeneration Spark Plugs, an important part for the gas engine industry. This post will: describe Iridium Saver Plugs and give DENSO parts numbers.
The first spark plug is the Iridium Saver. This uses original Iridium (Ir) and is the standard spark plug.
The second spark plug is the Iridium Saver Performer. This spark plug uses gas compression. Some benefits with this spark plug include greater durability, increased performance, and it includes that patented cross groove design (seen below).
The third spark plug is the Iridium Saver DDI which uses bio gas. This spark plug has the highest durability and it uses double Iridium.
Iridium Saver Spark Plugs are very high quality and premium products and will guarantee you product reliability. In addition, they are an OE Suppler (Waukesha, Cummins, GE Jenbacher, CAT, etc etc). Advantages & characteristics of Iridium Saver Spark Plugs include the following:
DENSO Patented Iridium – more longevity
Powder Sealing & Hot Lock – higher compression
Nickel Plating – increased corrosive resistance compared to the competitors
360° Laser Welding – ensures stability
Monolithic Resistor – increased adhesion to high temperatures
A spark plug failure can be a result of many different things. This blog post will contain five possible reasons on why your spark plug is failing. These reasons include: carbon fouling, oil fouling, overheating, pre-ignition, and insulator breakage. Visual and written descriptions will be provided for each possible reason.
Why did the spark plug fail?
Before outlining what spark plugs look when they’re failing, let’s start by looking at what a normal spark plug should look like.
The base of insulator becomes white or gray when using unleaded gasoline
Electrode may become burned
The base of insulator becomes light brown when using leaded gasoline
Dried carbon deposited covering insulation base as well as electrode area
Faulty engine stability at low speeds
Engine may die often
NOTE: nearly 90% of engine problems are a result from carbon fouling or oil fouling on forklift spark plugs
Incorrect thermal value
Idling of the engine for too long / driving in cold temperatures
How to decode spark plugs is a very common problem. This blog will outline how to decode DENSO spark plugs.
DENSO spark plugs follow a specific pattern that can be used for each and every DENSO spark plug. To decipher your DENSO spark plug, you must interpret each character within the part number. Below, a table can be seen that gives each possible character and defines what they mean. ***AN EXAMPLE CAN BE SEEN BELOW THE TABLE***
Table note: asterisks * indicate the number of characters after a specified character that need to be fulfilled in order for the description to be accurate. For example, letter A in special design could be used for part number W22EA. In comparison, letter A*** in special design could only be used for a part number with 3 characters after it such as part number QJ16AR-U, with R-U being the three characters used after ‘A’.

Here’s how to decode the Denso part numbers on our most popular spark plug. W16EXR-U11.
W 14mm thread size, 20.6mm hex size. This information was found in the second row in the table.
16 this is an indicator on a range. This means that the part number is more hot rather than cold. This information was found in the third row in the table.
E 19.0mm. This information was found in the third row of the table. This information was found in the fourth row in the table.
X Extra projected insulator nose. This information was found in the fifth row in the table.
R Resistor. This information was found in the sixth row in the table.
-U U-grooved ground electrode. This information found in the seventh row in the table.
11 1.1mm / 0.044in. This information was found in the eighth row in the table.
S: 0.7 mm diameter iridium. This was found by going to the first row of the table and finding the ‘S’ character. Note: because there are two letters before the first number, this means that we must use the ‘S’ in the first row rather than the ‘S’ in the second row.
K: 14×16.0 (ISO Small Hex plug). This was found by going to the second row of the table and finding the ‘K’ character.
20: heat range. This was found by going to the third row of the table and finding the ’20’ combination.
H: Electrode projection (8.5 mm). This was found by going to the fifth row of the table and finding the ‘H’ character.
R: With resistor. This was found by going to the sixth row of the table and finding the ‘R’ character.
11: 1.1 mm gap. This was found by going to the eighth row of the table and finding the ’11’ combination.
