GORE® Vents

GORE® Membrane Vents equalize enclosure pressure 

GORE® Vents let sealed enclosures 'breathe,' allowing airflow in and out. Membrane vents eliminate pressure differentials created when sealed enclosures are exposed to rapid, recurring changes in environmental conditions. Vents improve enclosure failed seals performance.

  • Virtually eliminate condensation

  • Rapid pressure equalization

  • Block contaminants: water, dust, dirt, liquids

  • Protect against 'board level' electronics failures

  • Install easily into existing housing designs

  • Eliminate hazardous gas build up

  • Improve seal performance to eliminate seal failure

  • Good for altitude change pressure elimination

  • Eliminate vacuum in enclosures

Vents eliminate enclosure pressure differentials in harsh environments and protect against corrosion:Gore Vents

  • Quick changes in temperature (thunderstorm on a hot, sunny day) 
  • Altitude changes
  • Heating and cooling cycles from internal heat sources 
  • Vacuum causes continued stress on housing seals resulting in failure, pulling in moisture and contaminants
  • Wind-driven rain, directed hose spray and hazardous battery gas build up

Pressure effects put high loads on sidewalls that deform and fatigue, causing seal leak paths. "Hidden Design Challenge of Pressure Differentials" (Jason Zambotti, W.L. Gore & Associates)
