Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG offers a 100,000-mile minimum performance guarantee for its Meyle and Meyle-HD water pumps on top of the standard four-year guarantee give for all its products.
The company says its silicon carbide mechanical seals technology (SiC/SiC mechanical seals) enables its Meyle and Meyle-HD brand water pumps to outperform conventional designs in terms of quality.
A defective water pump can quickly cause major engine damage. In many cases, the root cause is a leaking mechanical seal, which is why material quality is a critical factor. Using SiC/SiC mechanical seals, Meyle and Meyle-HD water pumps far exceed the quality standards typically available on the independent aftermarket, according to the company.
Wulf Gaertner Autoparts says the extremely narrow sealing gap combined with a high-grade silicon carbide material helps protect the water pump against wear and contamination. Even the smallest of particles are ground down instantly. No run-in period is required – the water pump is perfectly water-tight immediately after installation.
Compared to conventional hard carbon material typically used in aftermarket applications, silicon carbide sliding face material pairings offer excellent thermal conductivity thereby preventing the risk of crack formation due to thermal stress. The result: a prolonged water pump life.
