Gates New FleetRunner Coolant Hose

Posted on January 28, 2013

Because of increasingly stringent emission standards, newer heavy-duty vehicles are manufactured with smaller engine compartments, and more emissions equipment and engine accessories, resulting in higher under hood temperatures. These vehicles require coolant hose that can withstand the low engine airflow and high-heat conditions. With a temperature rating of -40o to +300o s F, Gates Corp. said it has introduced the FleetRunner Hi-Temp peroxide-cured EPDM straight coolant hose to offer superior performance in extreme heat.

Its tube and cover are constructed with peroxide-cured EPDM, an abrasion-resistant material that Gates said is designed to resist electrochemical degradation, binds to system components for fewer cold water leaks, and has a lower water permeation rate.
