Turbochargers are an integral of heavy duty diesel engines that help achieve a more efficient engine without sacrificing engine power. Sealing on the compressor and turbine sides of the turbo provides unique challenges where both metal and polymer seals can be a solution.
Our metal axial seal (v-seals or lipseals) can be used on the turbine side of the turbo where exhaust gas temperatures can reach 1,600F or higher. These seals are installed between a shaft and housing and can accomodate angular misalignments in the range of 1-2 degrees.
Our turboseal is a low load seal that can be installed between the turbo and exhaust manifold. Due to its unique shape the seal can accomodate uneven joint separation and can be shaped into non-circular grooves.
