Withstanding extremely high pressure

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

ContiTech says it has enhanced the quality of its 123 timing belt kits plus water pumps. The new components contain high-quality mechanical shaft seals which are said to guarantee the pump remains leak-proof at extremely high pressure and high temperatures.

The sintered-metal sprocket has a toothed profile which enables optimal meshing of the belt, preventing wear. In addition to the timing belt and the water pump, the kits also contain the tensioning pulleys, idlers, accessories, water pumps and other consumables, all in OEM quality. The kits are designed to assist automotive professionals in replacing all the components of a belt drive at the same time.

The OEM-quality parts are matched with each other to give greater security and simpler operation in the workshop; they do not have to be ordered individually. "We wish to make these benefits available to more and more vehicle types," says Markus Pirsch, head of the automotive aftermarket marketing service, ContiTech.
