Airtex Vehicle Electronics™ Introduces OE-Function Idle Air Control Valves
Each Unit Manufactured, Tested and Calibrated to OE Specifications to Ensure Trouble-Free Performance
Fond du Lac, WI, April 12, 2012...Airtex Vehicle Electronics™ now offers a comprehensive, all-makes/all-models line of replacement idle air control valves that deliver original equipment-style performance under all operating conditions. Many lesser-quality IACVs (also referred to as throttle air by-pass valves) look like the OE equivalents but can be susceptible to accelerated wear caused by carbon build-up.
Airtex Vehicle Electronics is one of the few aftermarket manufacturers that designs, produces and tests IACVs in accordance with strict OE requirements. This quality-focused approach ensures that unit castings conform to specified tolerances, pintle profiles match OE flow, and plunger shafts and magnets are precisely calibrated to the requirements of each foreign nameplate or domestic application.
“Matching OE appearance and fit isn’t enough for aftermarket manufacturers today. There are dozens of critical quality checks at every stage of the design and manufacturing process that enable our team to deliver parts that also perform at least as well as, if not better than, the OE units,” said Bill Nonnamaker, vice president of sales and marketing, Airtex Vehicle Electronics.
Among these extra quality steps are exclusive airflow testing to ensure consistent performance, post-calibration thread-locking of adjustment screws to prevent performance degradation, 100-percent testing and calibration on the manufacturing line, and on-vehicle validation of each new design.
In addition to complete coverage of domestic applications, Airtex IACVs are available for an extensive range of foreign nameplates, including Acura, Audi, BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Kia, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota, Volkswagen, and many others.
