The Standard of Quality, Innovation, Service and Support Since 1955

This month we highlight significant new gasket additions to IPD’s product line. Our featured item, a new version of the IPDStyle 1-2-3™ Gasket Catalog, is now available. Also, in addition to Spanish and Arabic, this Newsletter is now available in Russian and French.
 
IPDStyle 1-2-3™ gaskets were the first true consolidated sets developed for Caterpillar® engines. Many companies have attempted to copy this system, but none have accomplished the original goals of our IPD sets.
 
Also this month, we provide a sneak preview of our C9 and C10 product launches (coming soon in 2011). Stay tuned for upcoming information on our continuing development of parts for the "C" series engines.

We thank you for your business and welcome your comments at sales@ipdparts.com.

IPD FEATURE PRODUCT: IPDSTYLE 1-2-3™ GASKET SET CATALOG NOW AVAILABLE

IPD developed the IPDStyle 1-2-3™ system over a decade ago so mechanics would get everything needed to complete a repair, and distributors could cover a wider range of engines with less inventory. As a result, these gasket sets are the preferred choice with our customers compared to the "OEM" style sets. Some reasons our customers prefer the IPDStyle 1-2-3™ system compared to others include:

  • First and foremost, IPD uses only the best quality materials specific to heavy duty diesel and natural gas applications...we do not compromise on materials!
  • IPDStyle 1-2-3™ sets have custom-specified contents based on IPD’s comprehensive review of each component needing replacement in each situation, NOT just a combination of modular sets thrown into a box as may be the case with other aftermarket sets. In many cases, engine rebuilders help to influence the contents of our sets.
  • IPD’s specially designed system covers the widest range of applications or serial numbers that is cost effective, helping you to increase your coverage while reducing your inventory.
  • IPDNetonline catalog also includes all IPDStyle 1-2-3™ sets as an option when you look up your engine (we also list the modular style for your convenience).
  • In many cases, OEM’s do not offer modular gasket sets on later model engines! You must order all the parts individually! IPD has already developed IPDStyle 1-2-3™ sets on many newer applications for your convenience!
  • To further add value, we solicit suggestions to our sets by including an IPD CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT form with the set that can be emailed or faxed directly to our gasket development team for review. We want to know how we can improve our sets!
  • Easy to use Catalog. A new version is now released and available for download below!

Please follow the link below to download a PDF copy of our latest IPDStyle 1-2-3™ Gasket Catalog, or if you are an authorized IPD Distributor you may apply for a password for our IPDNet™ online catalog and e-ordering system by clicking on Contact IPD at top of our web page at www.ipdparts.com

IPD NEW PRODUCT: IPD ANNOUNCES 2N2765 TURBOCHARGER MOUNTING BOLT

A seemingly simple item can be surprisingly important, as some mechanics may have experienced when using a regular or substandard bolt in high temperature applications!
 
Made from A-286 alloy, these bolts can withstand prolonged exposure to high temperatures and remain resistant to oxidization. A-286 is used in various components in the aircraft, gas turbine, and offshore oil & gas industries that require high strength as well as high temperature durability and corrosion resistance.  
 
IPD also offers the 2N2766 Nut in stainless steel...Beware of cheap imitations!
