Engine-specific Solutions

Blanket packages to suit Hitachi

Choose blanket kits for each machine type that align with your fire mitigation strategy. For Hitachi excavators, you could specify blankets for the manifold, turbos, exhaust pipes, and firewall. Our blankets protect newly purchased equipment, overhaul engines, and replace worn blankets.

Turbo & junction blankets

Cover turbos and junctions to reduce pipe and component heat below fuel-ignition temperatures. Fuel leaks are more likely to cause fires if hot exhaust parts are not covered. Aletek blankets are easy to secure in place and remove, thanks to quick-fit springs.

Manifold blankets

Manifolds are sources of considerable thermal energy. With Aletek’s purpose-engineered blankets, you can cool hot parts below flashpoint ratings. The fit and coverage of manifold blankets must be adequate when installing manifold covers.

Exhaust pipe blankets

Shield engine and exhaust pipes from fire hazards by adding thermal blankets. Engine pipes must be covered with blankets, so they do not come into contact with high-voltage lines. An added risk is associated with power cables for trucks with electric drives, such as the Hitachi EH5000AC-3.

Muffler & tailpipe blankets

Dozers with cramped engine bays can benefit from muffler and tailpipe blankets for comprehensive fire shielding. Consider adding thermal blankets to reduce heat emissions from mufflers if they cause emissive heat issues that affect nearby components such as driver’s cabs or grease traps.


For optimal fire mitigation, you should install Aletek blankets on your Hitachi excavators. Thermal blanket solutions are available for excavators, such as the ZX490, to supersized excavators, such as the EX8000. We make the exceptional fire barrier systems with our comfortable fit blankets and outstanding Australian production.

Haul Trucks

We provide bespoke blanket solutions for Hitachi assets such as the EH4000 and EH5000. Aletek blankets can shield heat-generating parts such as turbos, manifolds, and engine pipes. We refine our products through continuous improvement and client input.

Wheel Loaders

Thermal lagging solutions are available for Hitachi wheel loaders such as the ZW120. Keeping your loader’s turbo, manifold, engine pipes, and muffler protected with our blanket kits is essential. Contact us if you need custom designs for other Hitachi equipment.
