Gates Corporation Now Offers Complete Line of New Heavy-Duty Water Pumps and Diesel Emission Fluid Hose for Commercial Vehicles

Gates will showcase Heavy-Duty Water Pumps and DEF Hose at the upcoming 2012 Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week show and TMC Annual Conference & Transportation Technology Exhibition.

Denver, CO, January 21, 2012 --( Gates Corporation, a leading manufacturer of industrial, automotive and heavy-duty products, now offers a complete line of Heavy-Duty Water Pumps as well as a line of Diesel Emission Fluid (DEF) Hose.

Designed to meet rugged Fleet standards, Gates Heavy-Duty Water Pumps are constructed with premium alloy materials, computer-tooled and fitted with a precisely balanced impeller to ensure OE fit and function. The expanded coverage includes 85 SKUs that are offered at competitive prices for virtually any Heavy-Duty or Fleet application. These new 100% quality tested pumps are manufactured to ISO/TS 16949 standards and backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

In addition, Gates brings an exclusive line of Diesel Emission Fluid Hose to the aftermarket. These hoses help limit the environmental impact of harmful emissions. Since DEF freezes at +11°F (-12°C), hose and couplings are electronically heated using Gates revolutionary carbon fiber heating system. This patent pending technology allows for more uniform fluid heating compared to heated-wire designs. Customizable hose lengths offer greater flexibility in design while thermoplastic over-molds protect electrical connections against moisture and corrosion.

Gates also provides DEF Tank Transfer Hose manufactured for the specific filling functions of DEF tanks. They feature the highest quality construction to meet the demands of Diesel Emissions Fluid handling and transfer.

Gates will showcase its expanded line of Heavy-Duty products in Booth #727 at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week, held Jan. 23-26, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nev., and in Booth #509 at the TMC Annual Conference & Transportation Technology Exhibition in Tampa, Fla. from Feb. 20-23, 2012.
