Fluid reservoirs mounted under the hood/body are subject to frequent temperature changes that cause expansion and contraction. Altitude changes can cause pressure differentials that can pull contaminants of all types – water, dirt, dust, debris and automotive fluids – into the reservoir, compromising its performance and that of related systems.
As an additional hurdle, new fluid reservoir designs must also be resistant to water spray and/or splash to ensure long term reliability.
Our vents offer long-term resistance to urea crystal growth, for reliable and sustained equalization of reservoir pressures. In addition, our vents provide:
- water ingress protection
- particulate protection, preventing entry of dust, dirt and debris
- resistance to automotive fluids including, car wash fluids, and lubricants
Gore engineered venting products can provide a single venting solution for fluid reservoir venting needs, including urea reservoirs for Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems. Additionally, our vents’ low profile construction can simplify attachment during production.
As a result, our vents for fluid reservoirs can contribute to reduced unit costs - and enhanced reliability.
GORE® Automotive Vents for Fluid Reservoirs are extensively tested, evaluated and qualified to perform consistently and reliably.
We offer a selection of vents designed especially for Urea/SCR applications.
|AVS 90, -92, -93, -94 & -95:
Low-profile vents reliably equalize pressures and resist damage from direct urea exposure, to extend reservoir service life. Five sizes available, for fast, easy weldable installation.

AML Systems (AML) and W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) introduce a new technology to actively prevent condensation and put headlamps on a new level of protection. AML’s Condensation Management Device (CMD) enabled by GORE™ Condensation Management Products leverages electrical power and regenerative desiccants to actively remove recurring moisture from automotive headlamps. The new technology will be presented today at the Conference SIA VISION 2018 in Paris.
W. L. Gore & Associates will highlight solutions for reliably protecting automotive components in harsh environments, during the SIA VISION, October 9-10 in Paris, France. The primary focus will be on Gore products for automotive lighting and electronics/driver assistance systems.
Headlamp condensation is a recurring evil for the automotive lighting industry. It will become even more of a challenge as the industry moves to full-LED headlamps, because existing venting solutions can only reduce –not sustainably prevent– such condensation.
W. L. Gore & Associates will highlight solutions for reliably protecting automotive components in harsh environments, during the 16th Driving Vision News (DVN) Workshop, January 30-31 in Munich, Germany.
