A new range of NTK exhaust gas temperature sensors
(EGTS) has been launched into the UK automotive
aftermarket by NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd.
EGTS monitor the exhaust temperatures to enable
efficient protection of vital components located in the
flow of hot exhaust gases in single and twin
turbo-charged cars. EGTS from the NTK brand are
original equipment (OE) in every third car worldwide.
Announcing the news at the Automechanika Show in
Frankfurt, Germany, the company said NTK EGTS are a popular choice for vehicle
manufacturers as they provide extreme resilience against heat and vibrations, have high
measuring accuracy, fast light-off times and an exceptionally wide measuring range.
Ten years after NGK’s first European OE business with these sensors, it now supplies 35
percent of all EGTS for OE globally with this market share rising to more than 60% for the
mounting position upstream of the turbo charger.
The new EGTS assortment for the aftermarket offers great business opportunities for
distributors and workshops.
Initially it includes the 20 most popular EGTS types from NTK, each of which is identical to
the respective OES part. Taken together, they offer a perfect sensor for almost two million
cars in the UK for brands that include Audi, BMW, Dacia, Ford, Renault, Seat, Skoda and VW.
To ease stock keeping, NGK has developed a special label for the EGTS aftermarket
packaging which can be scanned in upright and horizontal position and details the mounting
position of the included sensor to prevent incorrect installation.
