To meet rising temperatures and harsher conditions on and around the engine caused by tighter emissions standards, Global Vehicle Technologies has introduced a next generation of solenoid valves designed for severe-duty environments where temperatures exceed 250 degrees Fahrenheit for sustained periods of time.
The next-generation solenoid valves stand up to hotter engine compartment conditions, more aggressive road salts and increasing environmental compliance requirements, the company says. The valve’s thermoplastic construction also is designed to be more corrosion-resistant and rugged than past valves.
The initial target for the NGSV is the fan clutch, with other applications planned. For more information, go to www.gvt-norgren.com.
