  • Publication number: 20200208635
    Abstract: A seal member includes pushing projections that project from a seal body toward at a groove inner-side circumferential surface and are arranged at intervals in a circumferential direction of the seal body. The pushing projections push the seal body against the groove inner-side circumferential surface and a groove outer-side circumferential surface between the groove inner-side circumferential surface and the groove outer-side circumferential surface. This reduces the gap between the groove outer-side circumferential surface and the seal member in the seal accommodating groove. Thus, salt water is unlikely to collect in the gap between the groove outer-side circumferential surface of the seal accommodating groove and the seal member. This improves the corrosion resistance of the housing and the seal member.
