Temel Gaskets Has Added Valve Body Separator Plates

Temel Gaskets Has Added Valve Body Separator Plates

Continuing to expand its range of products, Temel now includes valve body separator plates in its offerings. The critical functionality of this part makes Temel a perfect candidate to bring together the years of engineering expertise with the design, development and manufacturing activities necessary in order to create the right product.     In an automatic transmission, the valve body is the controlling mechanism for the flow of fluids. Inside the valve body, the primary moving parts are metal balls which regulate fluid flow by functioning as check valves. The combination of the orifice size and the arrangement of the seat with the metal balls determine the flow rate and direction, respectively. There are examples of valve body designs where the metal balls are also supported by springs as a way to further control the flow.   If functioning properly, all of these pieces ensure the correct timing of the transmission shift. Any variation may result in lower performance. The hydraulic fluid activates the necessary clutch pack or servo units based on the selected gear. Computerized transmission units utilize electrical solenoids attached to the valve body to maintain the flow direction and placement of the hydraulic fluid within the compartments.   As it’s mostly the case, in applications where there is fluid or gas which needs to be contained or regulated, there is the need for sealing. That sealing is provided commonly by layers of fiber material placed onto either side of the metal plate, or in more recent designs, this functionality is provided by partially coated or fully elastomer coated metal layers. These pieces working against each other, provide the necessary functionality and may become worn, the...
Wide Range of Product Offerings from Temel Gaskets

Wide Range of Product Offerings from Temel Gaskets

Temel Gaskets offers a wide variety of engine sealing components and aftermarket parts. Below, we have showcased some of our products with descriptions of their function and purpose in automotive vehicles. In addition to the offerings below, our engineers are capable of designing and manufacturing custom parts. The core of our gasket product line includes: cylinder head gaskets, exhaust gaskets, valve cover gaskets, and turbocharger gaskets, in addition to heat shields and dynamic shields. Cylinder Head Gaskets Gaskets are used to seal engine parts and prevent leaks. A cylinder head gasket is positioned between the cylinder head and engine block, allowing it to seal the cylinders and provide the most possible compression to prevent coolant or engine oil from leaking into the cylinders. The areas between the cylinders are the weakest point in an engine. Located in the combustion chamber, many consider the head gasket to be the most important part of the engine. It must be extremely durable and compatible to the type of power produced by the engine. These gaskets can be manufactured out of many different materials, including: rubber, aramid, glass, cork, and metal. Having the correct cylinder head gasket prevents potentially serious and damaging internal and external leaks.These types of gaskets must be bolted down with a torque wrench to ensure they stay in place. Temel Gaskets offers a wide range of cylinder head gaskets for heavy duty and commercial vehicles. Exhaust gaskets Exhaust gaskets must be properly compressed to prevent exhaust fumes from going into the cooling system and causing engine damage.The structure of exhaust manifold varies due to engine characteristics and vehicle type....
3D Printing in the Automotive Industry

3D Printing in the Automotive Industry

(Photo Credit: 3dprintingankara.com) The Automotive Industry has been experiencing rapid changes in technology. From the development of autonomous vehicles to electrically charged vehicle engines, the boundaries for what was once thought impossible have reached new limits and produced higher expectations. One of the newest technologies being implemented into the auto industry is 3D printing and imaging. For many companies, it is quickly replacing conventional methods, like tool building and modifying. Here is how 3D printing is improving rapid prototype manufacturing and producing higher levels of efficiency in the auto industry. On Wednesday, April 27, Turkish-American organization TAYSAD, in collaboration with Dassault Systèmes, hosted an event featuring technologies by GOM, a German company that develops cameras for reverse engineering using object scanning and 3D printers by Stratasys, a major provider of 3D printing technologies. The event focus on explaining and demonstrating key processes used in reverse engineering and engineering change management for the automotive industry. Dassault Systèmes is a major player in providing solutions for 3D product design, simulation, engineering, and design management. At the event, product development teams and hardware solution partners from the company presented an impressive collection of their latest innovations in these fields. The recent improvements in rapid prototyping through 3D printing and scanning technologies have made this process significantly faster and more cost-effective. For a design duplication that would usually take weeks using conventional methods, rapid prototyping can produce complete results in just days or even hours for small scale projects. It is now possible to use these methods for hard plastics, rubber-like soft materials, and metals. The expanded range makes rapid prototyping relevant to many...

The History of Gaskets

The History of Gaskets

Temel Gaskets began manufacturing gaskets in 1974, but the entire history of gaskets spans over a century earlier. What is a gasket exactly? A gasket is “a mechanical seal that fills the space between two or more mating surfaces and is usually manufactured by cutting sheet materials.” Ideally, the material should have some degree of flexibility to fit any irregularities. Gaskets are usually made of flat material and some require a sealant to the gasket surface. A gasket is believed to last longer if it carries a heavier load, and undergoes a compression test to measure its “ability to withstand compressive holding.” In 1820 pack iron fillings, sulphur powder, and water were combined to make a solid iron sulphate seal. Before 1840, many gaskets were made from pieces of rope called Oakum. After the rope was picked apart, workers tarred, hammered, and caulked it into seams of boat hulls, or lubricated and packed it into the edges of steam pistons in Newcomen style engines and held in place with weights. That technique is comparable to modern-day graphite valve packing. During this time, leather gaskets were used for water pumps, even though the leather gradually tore apart when it came into contact with steam. Heat resistant rubber gaskets were not invented until after 1850, with the discovery of vulcanization. In 1923, Whitby Chandler Ltd. was founded in the United Kingdom. The company was one of the first major gasket suppliers and instrumental in developing sealing technology. In the 1960s the company began manufacturing compression rubber mouldings to accompany the gasket technology. As one of the first registered companies in the field,...
