Glow Plugs range grows

DENSO customers can now benefit from one of the automotive aftermarket’s most extensive selections of advanced, OE quality replacement Glow Plugs, thanks to the announcement of seven new Double Coil part numbers available from September.

The highly respected Glow Plugs programme offered by DENSO Europe B.V.’s Business Unit After Market & Industrial Solutions now ranks as one of the highest in the aftermarket in terms of vehicle parc coverage.

The seven new Double Coil references, announced at Automechanika Frankfurt, cover 35 OE part numbers and 215 key vehicle applications from a number of leading car makers; including Alfa Romeo, Citroën, Ford, Kia, Mini, Opel and Peugeot.

In total the DENSO Glow Plugs programme now includes 131 part numbers covering 1,055 OE references and 4,481 applications. As well as Double Coil, other types of DENSO Glow Plugs available include Single Coil, Extended Post-Heating, Ceramic and Instant Heating.

A further 11 new Glow Plugs are also set to be added to the programme by December.

Fanis Kapetanakis, Product Manager Glow Plugs at DENSO After Market said: “These expansions underline our continued commitment to developing one of the largest ranges of Glow Plugs available that offers both choice and superior quality.

“Consistently high levels of new diesel registrations throughout Europe signal a promising future for aftermarket growth. Emissions regulations for diesel engines will also continue to tighten in line with European legislation; and Euro 6 is impacting on the size of engines as manufacturers work towards meeting this target. By choosing the right replacement Glow Plug technologies, distributors and garages can ensure they serve this important market well, all year round.”

Drawing on DENSO’s heritage as a world leader in OEM Diesel systems, its Glow Plug programme is one of the best in the industry for scope, coverage and performance. DENSO’s OE quality Glow Plugs programme offers fast heat-up times, outstanding reliability, and extended post-heat temperatures that help to significantly reduce vehicle exhaust emissions.

All of the new references are of Double Coil type, featuring a heating coil and regulating coil, which is specifically designed for direct injection diesel engines. DENSO’s Double Coil Glow Plugs also offer extended post heating time of up to one minute.

Key new applications covered by the new Double Coil part numbers include: Ford Focus (04-present); Ford Mondeo (00-07); Opel / Vauxhall Astra (04-present); Opel / Vauxhall Insignia (08-present); and Peugeot 207 (06-present).
