Gates Thermostat with Integrated Housing
The heart of the Gates reverse poppet thermostat is the ELAC heat motor.
The unique properties of the heat motor result in a consistent and precise response to the cooling system’s needs. This is achieved through the use of a precisely formulated, thermally expansive wax fill that is calibrated to operate within OEM requirements.
The Gates heat motor is powered by a precisely formulated thermal responsive wax pellet in a heat conducting copper cup equipped with a stainless steel piston inside an elastomeric boot. The exact length of the stainless steel piston assures the prompt and precise operation of the thermostat valve. Each manufacturing process is rigidly controlled with world class quality controls, then a 100% calibration is conducted for each heat motor to guarantee quality and performance.
Gates thermostats provide a precise fit to help prevent leakage. Their temperature sensitive heat motor allows precise engine cooling, in order to guarantee optimum engine performance.
Gates markets several types of thermostats in order to provide the same design as specified by car manufacturers:
− The reverse poppet thermostat opens against the flow of coolant from the water pump. The coolant, under water pump pressure, is used to help the reverse poppet thermostat stay closed when cool to reduce leakage. This type is engineered with a self-cleaning, self-aligning stainless steel valve
− The offset thermostat with jiggle pin valves is equipped with a special valve in the flange, which allows trapped air in the system to escape and permits the venting of air from the system when filling it with coolant
− Gates also provides rubber seal thermostats, bypass thermostats etc., all with the same high quality
Features and Benefits:
