Frictionless energy savings
By sealing only when necessary, Turcon® Roto L reduces friction to reduce fuel consumption and save energy.
The Turcon® Roto L seal is the first active seal and is designed to extend seal life in shaft systems. Uniquely, it seals only when necessary. This reduces friction to reduce fuel consumption and thus saves energy.
The patented seal design combines a Turcon® M12 polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) sealing lip with a rubber liner and a stably formed metal part. During downtime, the sealing lip is held lightly against the sealing surface to achieve zero friction performance. Seal wear only occurs when the pressure is activated, resulting in a seal life four times longer than, until the pressure is activated.
When combined with the zero friction that occurs when the seal is not energized, the result is a significant extension of seal life (up to four times longer).
Central Tire Inflation Systems (CTIS)
The Turcon®Roto L seal is designed to extend the life of central tire inflation systems by reducing friction and saving energy and fuel. This is achieved by sealing only when necessary during tire pressure adjustment.
The Turcon® Roto L exhibit demonstrates how this seal minimizes friction in the CTIS to conserve energy and reduce fuel consumption.
