A Year Full of Milestones for Temel and The Global Automotive Industry

A Year Full of Milestones for Temel and The Global Automotive Industry

As the first days of 2018 approaches, we are adding the final notes to another year passed. It was truly filled with milestones here at Temel Gaskets. These were possible only as a result of the ongoing support so kindly given to us by our clients. Besides, the trust we were fortunate enough to establish with the global automotive industry. We take this time to thank all of our customers, business partners, colleagues, friends, and families. Temel Gaskets always move to the next level in the global automotive industry thanks to their contribution to our growth, belief in our vision and confidence in our passion. Our own efforts are always comprised of an expert team, extensive engineering knowledge and our ever growing range of products. On behalf of the entire Temel family, we wish everyone happy holidays and all the best in the new year! In case you have missed, here are a few of the updates we shared from the past year: AASA’s Top 100 Aftermarket Suppliers Temel Gaskets ranked among AASA’s Top 100 Aftermarket Suppliers in North America, 3rd year in a row.     Continuing to expand its range of products, Temel now includes valve body separator plates in its offerings.        Temel worked with Cody Meier, Albert Cheng and Vinh Nguyen from KSU’s AUV team. Hard work from both sides delivered the custom designed seal for the AUV.     Temel was one of the sponsors of the fifth annual Formula SAE Southern Invitation at the Kennesaw University.       During the Automechanika Istanbul show 2017, TAYSAD included a two-day seminar and a panel to...
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...
