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.

NEW: AVS 110
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.
With its new GORE® Adhesive Vent AVS 110, W. L. Gore & Associates integrates innovative performance benefits into a smaller, 5 mm footprint. This small, low-profile GORE® Adhesive Vent is perfectly aligned with the needs to further miniaturize – and better protect – high-value automotive control units, sensors, actuators and motors.
As electronic motors, sensors, actuators and control units become more sophisticated and high-value, their enclosures are becoming smaller and more densely configured. Gore’s new small-footprint, low-profile, all-membrane GORE® Adhesive Vent AVS 110 offers innovative benefits for these under-hood and under-chassis electronic enclosures.
Introducing Gore's new High Wep Series: Nearly twice the Water Entry Pressure (WEP) resistance, with high airflow and temperature stability.
