Meziere Reservoir style electric water pump and components will keep the Summit SuperSeries championship dragster cool under pressure
American made with quality far superior to any other performance aftermarket company, Meziere Enterprises build their water pumps with pride right here in the USA. And that is why they are a perfect match to team with the IHRA in providing a water pump and components for this year’s Summit SuperSeries prize dragster.
The Meziere 200 Series electric water pumps deliver up to 37 gpm of flow, and have an integrated expansion tank for use with low or horizontally mounted radiators. That makes the pump ideal for dragsters. And, because they are electric, racers won’t have horsepower loss at high rpm caused by a mechanical pumps impeller.
Its integrated surge tank makes these systems easy to fill in just a fraction of the time. Meziere pumps feature CNC-machined aluminum housings, epoxy coated motor windings, an RF suppression circuit, and a one-piece, carbon-ceramic seal. With ahead of water above a self-priming pump cavity, this design eliminates air locking and cavitation.
Also on this year’s dragster is a Meziere thermostat housing. These have a machined sealing surface with a 5 degree taper to ensure positive sealing. All water necks are aluminum, precision machined and finished to the highest standards.
They’re available in a variety of colors, and matching outlets for specific engine applications, hose and AN fitting options. The housing features a 360 degrees swivel for easy hose alignment and all mounting hardware is included.
The Meziere flexplate is forged from one-piece billet steel and use a starter gear that is machined in the same process. There are no welds to break and no warping or cracking of the flexplate. These true billet flexplates are the straightest, strongest, and most concentric flexplates available on today's market. Machined to exacting tolerances from 4340 round bar, their proprietary manufacturing process ensures the strongest gear tooth, least runout, and the best longevity on the market.
