Component Trays are useful when stripping and reassembling injector assemblies in the workshop. All of the individual components need to be kept in a place where they will be safely stored until they are needed again. It is best practice to use a dish or, preferably, a compartment tray to safely store all of the parts to avoid losing or mixing them up and to keep them clean and uncontaminated.
During the strip down of a Common Rail injector, it is imperative that the parts are kept together for each injector and in sequence while being dismantled. The simple confusion of getting a shim mixed up can cause hours of unwanted extra work to get the injector back to its original parameters when on test, so ALWAYS use a component tray.
Darwen Diesels have a wide range of workshop consumables including magnetic dishes, which are ideal for keeping components safely stored. We have a great range of magnetic dishes in large and small size, in stock and available for next day UK delivery. All the bolts and small metallic parts, are kept together in a magnetic dish, the ultimate in safe workshop component storage.
We also have a range of plastic injection moulded component trays similar to those used in the electronics industries, each with 6 compartments, ideally suited for use in a workshop to keep small parts safely stored and clean until needed.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our parts and assemblies along with our customer service. If you are unable to locate any part on our site please contact us and our sales/technical team will be only too happy to help you to source that part.
Protection caps have been used in the Diesel trade for many years. After the injector, or pump has been fully reconditioned or in some cases replaced by a new part, dust caps have been fitted after test and/or repair to keep dust, dirt or any form of contamination out of the workings of the unit and to protect the threads.
Screw in and push in plugs, also push on caps and plugs available in metric and UNF sizes for injectors and pumps
If you can't find the correct size of protection cap or plug that you require, then please get in touch and our team will help you find what you need.
We stock a wide range of essential workshop consumables, including self-seal polythene bags (small) along with Injector bags, which are available in 2 sizes. We also have a range of DPA and inline pump polythene bags.
Any form of contamination in the workings of an injector or pump should not be permitted under any circumstances, therefore protection is a must. Darwen Diesels polythene bags are made to accommodate all the different sizes required to keep a pump or injector free from dirt prior to being fitted to the engine.
Our current range of workshop poly bags are all available in packs of 100 and consists of; Self-Seal Bags (4” x 5”), Injector Bags (8” X 12”), DPA Pump Bags (14” x 18”), In-line Pump Bags (18”x 24”), In-line Pump Bags (18” x 27”), Injector Bags (6” x 12”).
These are high quality workshop poly bags that are manufactured to high standards intended for workshop use. These bags are self-sealing and ideal for packaging and presentation as well as offering a high degree of protection from dust, moisture and other contaminants.

Buffing wheels are purpose designed for the removal of rust, scale, paint, dirt etc. from metal and other surfaces. These wheels are also ideal for preparing metal or rubber prior to gluing and, of course for stripping paint from metal surfaces.
Ferrous metals, after time, start to deteriorate and rust if not protected first, so to help remove this we stock a range of rotary wire brushes in either 30 gauge or 36 gauge and from 6” to 10” diameter. They are supplied with varying inserts allowing the brushes to be fitted to different sized motor shafts. If used on Non-Ferrous metals, great care must be taken so as not to damage the metal.
Here at Darwen Diesels we have everything you need for buffing metal parts and surfaces. Within our range you will find all the most popular sizes and types of buffing wheels ideal for bench grinders and polishing machines.
We keep a stock of the following sizes; 6”, fine and medium, 8” fine and medium and 10” fine and medium gauge as well as 8” thin gauge wire buffing wheels of very high construction standards.
All of our buffing wheels are exceptionally high quality and durable, ideal for workshop use.
An essential piece of Common Rail repair equipment is an Ultrasonic Cleaner. Cleaning the stripped down parts and cleaning them in a washing off tank, even with a clean solution, is not enough to remove all dirt or particles. An Ultrasonic cleaner with the right solution formula and dilution will remove dirt and particles not visible to the naked eye, rendering them available for assembly.
Ultrasonic cleaning reduces or eliminates the need for the use of harmful chemicals when cleaning detailed components effectively.
The process of ultrasonic cleaning is enhanced by the use of an appropriate cleaning fluid. Ultrasonic cleaning fluids typically contain wetting agents and detergents along with other substances in various ratios, depending on the items to be cleaned.
We stock an excellent range of ultrasonic cleaning fluids which consists of; Aquatec HD by Clean-Tek in 20 litre and 5 litre containers and Bio Diesel Clean by ASNU in 25 litre and 5 litre containers.
Both of these brands are rated as low foam Alkaline cleaning products which are purpose designed for removing oil and grease deposits, ideal for the workshop or test room.
They are suitable for use in spray washers, ultrasonic baths and dip tanks. These cleaning solutions are perfect for cleaning engine parts but are not suitable for use with Aluminium or galvanised metal parts.
Many of these cleaning solutions are in stock and available for next day dispatch.
At Darwen Diesels we make a point of stocking those hard to find specialised tools and high quality workshop consumables that we know you need including calibration fluid.
Calibration fluids are simulated fuels that have the physical properties designed specifically to replicate diesel fuel. Calibration fluids are specially designed and formulated to meet the tight specifications demanded when calibrating, flowing and flushing fuel pumps and injectors.
Smooth in texture, with high anti corrosion properties, our calibration fluid is ideally suited for use in nozzle testing systems and all types of hand operated and powered pump test stands.
This is an essential component in order to render accurate and consistent results in diesel injection test equipment. It is also extremely useful as a corrosion prevention oil for the internal preservation of fuel systems.
The Calibration Fluid we stock comes in a 20 litre container and is fully ISO4113 compliant. We have this product in stock and available for next day dispatch.
There are a number of reasons to use oil blacking solution on machined metal parts and components, the main one being corrosion resistance. The black coating acts as an absorbent layer essentially bonding the sealant to the metal, enhancing its resistance to corrosion, even in salt water conditions.
The smooth black surface looks attractive and gives the appearance of durability; if you are a manufacturer this can make your product look more appealing to buyers. It is highly economical compared to other metal coatings and has a high degree of dimensional uniformity with minute thickness, especially when compared to electro plating.
Here at Darwen Diesels we stock an excellent quality oil blacking fluid, which is available in a 5 litre container.
The product is called Black Diamond and it has been formulated specifically to produce a chemical black finish on any mild steel and cast component surface and is an essential product for use in any diesel workshop or test room.
Here at Darwen Diesels we stock an excellent range of sealing paint made in Germany by Bäder-Lacke, a company based in Germany whose name has been associated with top quality tamper proof sealant (torque sealant) since 1962.
The screw securing and thread-sealing paint we stock is an essential tool that has been purpose designed to protect, mark, and fill all types of seal work that involves any type of screw securing applications.
It is often used in a quality assurance role to protect the product from unauthorised tampering or manipulation in the role of precision engineering or machine building in the auto and electronics industries.
It is available in 5 colours: Blue, Green, Red, White and Yellow in 20ml tubes.
