DENVER, May 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gates Corporation, a global diversified manufacturer of industrial, automotive, and heavy-duty aftermarket products, today announces it has expanded its extensive Original Equipment (OE) quality automotive products line with 284 new part numbers.
This 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. Also, 11 new OE-Exact Fan Pulley Brackets which cover over 6 million VIO, are made with high quality bearings and casting materials to provide the proper structure and support needed for the fan clutch. In addition, a new Hose Connector Assortment with hard-to-find reducer and "Y" connector components, includes a range of premium automotive fittings with 17 components in total.
Gates expands product coverage with two additions to its growing hydraulics line. New 90 Degree Live Swivel Couplings for hydraulic applications are now available. Made for hydraulic equipment with complex twisting and turning components to prevent torsional forces from being transmitted to the hose, these long-lasting, trouble-free couplings mean fewer hose failures and less equipment downtime. Gates also introduces 103 new 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.
"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," said Scott Howat, Gates Director of Marketing and Product Management for the North American Aftermarket.
