Quality Hardware is Key to Success

It all started with quality hardware.

In the early days of personal computing, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates realized the high standards necessary to grow that market. They both worked diligently toward that end, testing and retesting their components. The proof of success is not only the fact that there are computers in virtually every household, but what the Apple and Microsoft brands have become today.

When it comes to manufacturing fuel systems, it’s all about the hardware, too. Proper vehicle operation starts with quality hardware components. The “right” system integrator is the difference between the “room size” computer systems of the 1970’s and the “wrist size” systems we enjoy today.

Having the right standards, equipment, facilities and people makes all the difference in vehicle performance. For example, ROUSH CleanTech builds systems to include safety valves that shut off if the fuel line ruptures. The overfill mechanisms are designed to prevent over-fueling, to allow for volume change. The highest-quality materials, such as carbon steel, billet aluminum and high-durability stainless steel, ensure fuel system durability and longevity for customers. What’s more, all fuel tanks are certified to ASME standards. Well-trained mechanical engineers confirm all these standards are in place so you know you are receiving a hardware system that is up for the job.
