48 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S

48 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK Fuel filters in combustible engines play a vital role in cars and trucks. Their purpose is to filter contaminants that might enter the engine causing damage and they also provide better gas mileage. Cleaner fuel will burn more efficiently and increase a vehicle’s lifetime. However, like any part in a vehicle, inevitable wear is caused over time and a fuel filter is no different, especially under harsh climates. In order to replace a fuel filter an individual is required to remove two bolts from the fuel line and slide the fuel line out. Then remove the bolts holding the filter attached to the vehicle. Bolts and screws can wear over time, becoming rusted causing the fuel filter to become loose or the fuel line to detach. This improved design replaces the bolts and screws. The fuel filter is more like a fuel filter cartridge which can be Rotor Clip Company Inc. 187 Davidson Avenue, Somerset, NJ 08873 Tel: 1-800-557-6867 Fax: 732-469-7898 Email: info@www.rotorclip.com www.rotorclip.com IMPROVED FUEL FILTER UTILIZING A WAVE SPRING by Vincent Rodgers easily screwed into a fuel line base attached to the vehicle. A wave spring can be used in the base of the fuel filter cartridge located in the screw collar. The fuel line base will have a catch or detent attached to it. When the fuel filter cartridge is screwed into place, the wave spring will “catch” the base, locking it into place. Using a wave spring provides a uniformly distributed periphery around the base for a secure grip. It can also be coated to prevent deterioration. Adding the wave spring is an inexpensive alternative which will save time and money for someone replacing a fuel filter. When it is time to replace the filter, simply unscrew it, dispose of it and replace with another filter. DISASTER PLANNING IN THE COMING YEAR continued from page 24 2) Security If you provide consumer goods such as groceries and other necessary supplies, security is a must. Over the past decades, whenever there is a natural disaster or riot, the first thing looted tends to be consumer goods stores. While it is illegal for the population to loot, police cannot always protect those businesses and prosecute the individuals responsible for the chaos. Reasonable measures must be taken in order to, if not defend the store; provide footage for law enforcement to catch the individuals responsible for the crimes there committed. 3) Finances Without the proper finances in place, your business could be shut down. Modern day financing relies heavily on electronic mediums such as credit card readers and telecommunications. Bottom line, if there is no power, there is essentially no money. The solutions to the situation may not be easy. Two scenarios come to mind 1) either a back up generator or 2) A remote business location wherein company business can be conducted conduct business. A back up generator can be in the form of a portable generator or if you have the money and infrastructure to invest, you may be able to purchase and utilize a whole building back up. Your employees will also need financial assistance during this time period as well. Two weeks of pay can ensure that employees 1) can pay their bills and endure, and 2) come back as they will be obligated to work for the pay advance you provided them with. This assurance is a good thing to have especially when key employees may be having second thoughts about returning after a large natural disaster. Conclusion Additionally a whole wealth of information is provided at ready.gov for individuals and businesses. Just remember that alongside the business, individuals must be taken care of as well. If the individual employees cannot endure their own personal situation, they will be unwilling to stay. Ready.gov provides insight for personal readiness as well and should be followed despite any situation Every business should have a disaster plan in place in order to survive a natural disaster ranging from the smallest to devastating. People face challenges and businesses do as well. It is important that a natural disaster does not become a personal or business bankruptcy, where a continuation is possible and necessary.
