Dayco, a supplier of engine products and drive systems for the automotive, industrial, and aftermarket industries, launched a line of electrically controlled water pumps for 2017 and newer Detroit Diesel 13 and 15 variable speed engines.
According to Dayco, the new technology addresses a higher-than-normal failure rate technicians and fleet owners are experiencing with the original equipment replacement pumps.
The Dayco HD electrically controlled variable speed water pump will cover more than 350,000 vehicles on the road and be supported with a 250,000-mile warranty. Featuring an improved OE engineered design for enhancing durability and increased longevity, according to the manufacturer, this water pump is made from high strength aluminum and uses only case-hardened roller bearings.
The technical team at Dayco has focused on bringing solutions to market that help solve problems technicians are having with original equipment replacement parts, extending service life and improving performance.
These electrically controlled water pumps will round out Dayco’s line of heavy-duty pumps, which offers coverage for 97% of the applications on the road today.
