  • Publication number: 20210320375
    Abstract: A degassing unit to be connected fluid-tightly to a pressure compensation opening of an electronics housing has a base body with gas passage opening. A semipermeable membrane, fastened fluid-tightly to a membrane carrier, allows gaseous media to pass from an environment into the electronics housing and in reverse but prevents passage of liquid media and solids. In normal operation, the membrane covers the gas passage opening. An axial seal circumferentially extends about the gas passage opening. The membrane carrier is moveable relative to the base body and, in normal operation, is pressed by axial force seal-tightly against the axial seal. The membrane carrier, when a predetermined pressure difference between housing interior and environment is surpassed, lifts off the base body to release an emergency degassing opening surrounding the membrane. The axial seal is a lip seal and made of a material softer than a material of the membrane carrier.

  • Publication number: 20210255647
    Abstract: A unit for the regulation for control of a fluid pressure, having at least one housing section and a switching film connected to the at least one housing section. A chemically inert, non-rubber-like PTFEswitching film switching film is disposed in the valve housing and switches at pressure differences of 1 mbar to 250 mbar for regulating, opening or blocking a flow of a fluid from the inlet to the outlet. The switching film is formed of a fluorine and carbon containing polymer material. The switching film has a plate-shaped flat body with a bending region and has a central closure region surrounded by the bending region. The bending region, when switching the switching film, moves the central closure region relative to a valve seat of the valve housing in an axial direction of the plate-shaped flat body toward or away from the valve seat by a stretch free or low-stretch bending movement.

  • Publication number: 20210140497
    Abstract: A brake dust particle filter for a disc brake assembly is provided to catch particles generated during braking. The brake dust particle filter has a ring segment-shaped housing with two axially spaced apart housing side walls and a radially outwardly positioned housing peripheral wall. The housing peripheral wall is arranged between the housing side walls. The housing accommodates the brake disc in the housing interior. A tongue projects inwardly away from the housing peripheral wall in the housing interior. The tongue projects at least in sections with a radial component and has a flat cross section with a base surface facing the housing peripheral wall, an end face projecting into the housing interior, and a side face. The tongue is formed by a filter medium and has no supporting device components separate from the filter medium. The filter medium provides a satisfactory stiffness keeping the tongue structurally stiff.

  • Publication number: 20200284228
    Abstract: A filter housing has a first housing part with a first rim section and a second housing part with a second rim section. The housing parts can be joined and separated from each other in axial mounting direction and define a housing interior for a filter element provided with a circumferentially extending sealing element. The first and second rim sections form a receiving area in which the sealing element is seal-tightly clamped radially between the first and second rim sections when the housing parts are joined in the mounted state. A snap connecting device axially braces the first and second housing parts relative to each other. The snap connecting device is formed integrally on the first and second housing parts such that a clamping force applied by the first and second rim sections on the sealing element in radial direction is decoupled from the snap connecting device.
