Gates Offers New Line of Heavy-Duty Water Pumps and DEF Hose
January 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
now offers a complete line of heavy-duty water pumps as well as a line of diesel emission fluid hose.
Gates will release a new line of heavy-duty water pumps (above) and new DEF hose line.
The water pumps are constructed with alloy materials, computer-tooled and fitted with a precisely balanced impeller to ensure OE fit and function. The expanded coverage includes 85 SKUs. These new pumps are manufactured to ISO/TS 16949 standards and backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
The DEF hoses help limit the environmental impact of harmful emissions. Because diesel exhaust fluid freezes at 11 degrees, hose and couplings are electronically heated using Gates' carbon fiber heating system. This allows for more uniform fluid heating compared to heated-wire designs. Customizable hose lengths offer greater flexibility in design, and thermoplastic over-molds protect electrical connections against moisture and corrosion.
Gates also provides DEF tank transfer hose manufactured for the specific filling functions of DEF tanks.
Gates will showcase its expanded line of heavy-duty products at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week
, Jan. 23-26, in Las Vegas, and at the TMC Annual Conference & Transportation Technology Exhibition
in Tampa, Fla. from Feb. 20-23.
