April 10, 2018—Dayco, an engine products and drive systems supplier, today announced the launch of its first stand-alone water pump in North America. The initial range provides coverage for over 200 million vehicles in operation.
Each Dayco water pump features the latest technology, which includes upgraded materials for the bearing, impeller, gasket and is 100 percent end-of-line leak tested.
Additional design features include coolant-resistant, long service life grease for the bearings and pump specific impellers that are optimized for each individual application and designed to ensure efficient coolant flow throughout the engine and prevent cavitation within the coolant.
Finally, the main water pump bodies are designed to support external loads from the associated components in the drive belt system, as well as engine vibrations and thermal movement, while remaining perfectly watertight in all conditions.
“With this introduction, we provide our customers with a high-caliber component that carries the same hallmark for quality as the existing Dayco product range. The new Dayco water pump offering allows our customers to cater to a different although complementary product group,” said Massimo Falco, director of global aftermarket marketing.
