Charged EVs | KACO’s second-gen structured mechanical seals for inner rotor cooling
Sealing know-how agency KACO has launched the second era of its structured mechanical seals for inner rotor cooling.
“Following the profitable market launch of the primary era of mechanical seals for inner rotor cooling, KACO has considerably improved these methods by constantly optimizing the microstructures by way of occurring energy losses,” says the corporate, which used CFD simulations to redevelop the microstructuring of the seals.
“By constantly balancing simulation and testing, now we have succeeded after lower than a 12 months in decreasing friction losses to nearly a 3rd and on the identical time, relying on the seal dimension, in decreasing the technical leakage occurring in some check cycles to a degree that may now not be measured,” says VP of Analysis and Growth at KACO Andreas Genesius.
KACO says the second-generation seal “exhibits potential financial savings in energy losses of 50-70% in comparison with the present state-of-the-art in collection manufacturing.”
“The numerous financial savings in energy losses on the sealing system create a brand new attractiveness of direct inner rotor cooling by way of vary optimization of the automobile,” says KACO.
