No Water, No Problems for Manitou

Published: 28/11/2013

Manitou Southern Africa, a subsidiary of France-based Manitou BF, the mining industry’s foremost provider of performance-driven material handling solutions, are proud to announce their association with Evans Waterless Engine Coolants.

With over 40 years of experience in supplying the local market with material handling solutions, Manitou’s brand has become synonymous with robust, heavy duty, rough-terrain mining machinery, built to perform in the most arduous of conditions.

For decades, the engines working in these conditions have been cooled with water or water-based coolants, simply because there was no viable alternative. That is no longer the case.

Evans Waterless Coolants are revolutionary, non-toxic engine cooling fluids formulated to prevent cooling system failure. Common problems such as overheating, corrosion, electrolysis, liner pitting, high pressure, and much more can be resolved by replacing the engines antifreeze with Evans. Evans unique waterless blend safely operates beyond the limitations of water under the most extreme conditions and importantly, last the life of the engine.

Evans Coolants are now making a global impact across all engine sectors. Recently featured on the Discovery Channel, Evans Waterless Coolants are now used by some of the largest mining companies, cash-in-transit companies and agricultural Original Equipment Manufacturers’ (OEMs) in the world. Using Evans has eliminated countless hours of downtime and extended engine life across all these sectors. In the United States, the Military has benefited from using Evans for well over a decade and in Europe, Evans Heavy Duty Coolant is used by several major bus operators to reduce operating costs associated with high coolant pressures (hose and pipe bursts), corrosion of radiators and erosion of cooling pumps.

Manitou South Africa are utilising the proven benefits of Evans Coolants, particularly in their range of Flameproof Mining Utility Vehicles (MUVs), which recently won Manitou Southern Africa the Manitou International Mining Club Award for innovations in fire safety. All engine users can now opt for a purpose-formulated coolant.
