Sealing optimally - using experience
Modern sealing systems have a lot to do: They reliably seal off the various media (oil, coolant, fuels, combustion gases) with respect to both the atmosphere and one another. They also act as power transmission elements between engine components and, if accordingly designed, can assume extra important functions. With static flat gaskets, sufficient surface pressure must be ensured under all operating conditions in order to achieve reliable sealing action.
Elring can supply the right specialty gaskets (Metaloseal™, elastomer, soft material) for a variety of sealing applications in engines, gearboxes, exhaust systems and auxiliaries: Gaskets for sumps, intake and exhaust manifolds, water pumps, compressors, turbochargers, gearboxes and axles. Both materials and design are optimally matched to the relevant application and the specific requirements.
