The new valve is designed to retain its properties when exposed to new organic acid technology-type long-life OAT coolants. In addition, the company says the valves offer enhanced performance when using conventional coolants at elevated temperatures and pressures common in today's emission-compliant engines.
New features of the valve include:
-Numerous connection options with copper tube attachments that allow for rotation at any time without seal damage during assembly
-Body valves made from Dupont Zytel Plus nylon, which provides long-tern performance despite exposure to hot coolant, hot oil, hot air, calcium chloride and other automotive chemicals
-Long-wear valve stems made from plastic alloy that provides low friction while retaining properties when exposed to long-life OAT coolant
-Seals rom EPDM blended with lubricant
-Bi-directional flow to ease fear of backward flows
The new heater valve will be available for split HVC systems, stacked core HVAC systems, liquid cooled electrical components and other auxiliary cooling systems.
