Gore® Protective Membrane Vents
Gore® vents virtually eliminate condensation by equalizing enclosure pressure
GORE® membrane 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. (Read the 5 Year Vent Impact Study)
Gore® Protective Membrane Vents:
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 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:
- quick changes in temperature (thunderstorm on a hot, sunny day)
- altitude changes
- heating and cooling cycles from internal heat sources
- rapid temperature drops create a vacuum causing continued stress on housing seals resulting in failure. and 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)
Customers across industries improve product performance, life and especially seal performance using protective membrane vents. Using Gore Protective Vents for equalizing pressure and reducing condensation helps Design Engineers in electronics, lighting, enclosures and products that see harsh external conditions.Read Case Studies
