W. L. Gore & Associates (Elkton, MD) has expanded its line of GORE Automotive Vents to include the new Series: AVS 41 (P/N VE2048) venting solution, which is engineered specifically for powertrain components. This new vent improves component reliability by equalizing pressure, preventing contamination from water, dust, dirt and other automotive fluids and simplifying design challenges, ultimately resulting in lower overall costs. GORE Automotive Vents for powertrain applications:
- Are engineered to protect components such as transmissions, transfer cases, power transfer units, axles, and limited slip couplings from the most extreme operating conditions.
- Create a continuous airflow that equalizes internal pressure, which improves reliability by reducing vacuum and premature failure of housing seals.
- Features a membrane that provides resistance to contamination from dust, dirt, water spray, flooding, and freezing.
