New Beru Iridium spark plug range unveiled

Federal-Mogul Motorparts has launched itd new Beru® Iridium spark plug range. The OE-quality components supplement Beru’s existing line of spark plugs, glow plugs, glow control units, coils and leads, fully completing its ignition range.

Iridium spark plugs ensure optimized combustion, providing improved performance, enhanced fuel consumption and reduced emissions. Service life is extended up to 75.000 miles/ 120.000 km depending on the application which consequently reduces costs by extending service intervals. The Beru Iridium spark plug range is initially launched for Volkswagen and BMW fitments, but further range extension will follow.

“We are delighted that Beru is now able to offer a complete range of ignition components that guarantees that the combustion cycle of the engine is optimized,” says Bert De Haes, Group Product Manager, Ignition, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “The Iridium range of spark plugs is the pinnacle of Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ extensive ignition experience. It is built to match OE specifications and provide a high-performance, durable option.”

The use of iridium, with excellent wear characteristics, provides a more durable spark plug than alternative materials and is able to reduce cost through extended service life. This technology maintains a stable ignition even in harsh environments and sustained use, providing a precise spark spread and uncompromised performance.

“Federal-Mogul Motorparts is a global provider of premium ignition products, with knowledge and experience of product development for the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers,” added De Haes. “Equivalent technologies we produce for our OE customers are also available to the aftermarket through our ignition brands, Champion® and Beru.”
