Gates Corp. has released 284 automotive part numbers. Product additions include a power steering filter, fan pulley brackets, hose connector assortment and hydraulic couplings.
The release has several new introductions across product categories. Highlights include:
* a new power steering filter that extends steering system life and helps to eliminate pump warranties;
*Eleven new “OE-exact” fan pulley brackets covering more than 6 million VIO that are made with high quality bearings and casting materials to provide the proper structure and support needed for the fan clutch; and
* a new hose connector assortment with hard-to-find reducer and “Y” connector components with a range of premium automotive fittings with 17 components in total.
Gates also added two products to its growing hydraulics line. The company says its new 90 degree live swivel couplings for hydraulic applications are made for hydraulic equipment with complex twisting and turning components to prevent torsional forces from being transmitted to the hose. The long-lasting, trouble-free couplings mean fewer hose failures and less equipment downtime.
Gates also introduced 103 MegaCrimp Couplings with TuffCoat Xtreme Plating. The specialized coating exceeds SAE standards and offers unsurpassed protection against rust and corrosion that can damage a hydraulic system, according to the company.
“Our history of innovation and continuous improvement is evident with every new product release. We are excited about our expansion across product lines and about continuing to introduce parts that exceed customer expectations,” says Scott Howat, director of marketing and product management for the North American aftermarket.
