SKF extends commercial vehicle aftermarket offering with new water pump range

Owners and maintainers of commercial vehicles can now benefit from SKF’s renowned  quality and service for yet another key engine component, with the launch of a new range of premium quality water pumps.

Defined by high reliability and long service life, the water pump offering covers all the popular commercial vehicle brands including Volvo, Renault, MAN, Mercedes, Iveco, DAF and Scania.

Manufactured to the highest quality standards, the SKF water pumps are designed to meet original equipment manufacturer performance specifications. Every design has undergone a comprehensive long-term load test program and each unit is inspected and vacuum tested prior to delivery.

To facilitate installation, the new pumps are supplied in a kit with high quality gaskets, O-ring seals and fasteners. Detailed product data is available to help customers pick the appropriate kit to match each truck model or OE part number. In addition, a QR code on the packaging gives installers fast, easy one-click access to on-line installation instructions.


“Water pumps are a critical and frequently-replaced component,” says Niclas Snäll
Product development VSM at SKF. “This new range makes it easier for service providers to select and install replacement units, and gives owners the confidence of SKF quality.”

The new pump range extends SKF’s existing offering in the commercial vehicle aftermarket, which already includes the industry’s most comprehensive range of wheel bearings and seals, as well as a number of other engine components such as auxiliary tensioners and pulleys

SKF is a leading global supplier of bearings, seals, mechatronics, lubrication systems, and services which include technical support, maintenance and reliability services, engineering consulting and training. SKF is represented in more than 130 countries and has around 17,000 distributor locations worldwide. Annual sales in 2017 were SEK 77 938 million and the number of employees was 45 678.
