Gates introduces line of radiator caps for race cars

Gates is pleased to present the automotive aftermarket with a new product line in its already comprehensive cooling systems range.  Next to regular radiator caps Gates is now introducing caps that are especially designed for use on high performance cooling systems such as race cars.
 
At this moment the new range comprises 11 references including caps for mini (32mm ID, 16mm deep) and standard SAE “A” size (2 1/8” OD, ¾” deep) filler necks. Of these 11 references, 8 include an upper gasket so they are suitable for both open and closed cooling systems. They offer precise pressure control and high-quality materials for longer life. The particular design increases cooling efficiency, helps prevent coolant evaporation, and keeps air out of the cooling system.
 
The caps are made for use on race cars only and are not suitable for passenger cars. For passenger cars and light-duty commercial vehicles Gates already offers the aftermarket a line of OE-quality radiator caps which include metal radiator caps, from the very smallest to the large-diameter type, long reach (34 mm) and short reach (25 mm) radiator caps and plastic header tank caps for newer models with a closed cooling system.
