Gabriel has developed an improved misting reduction seal for its heavy-duty shock products, extending service life and reducing overall downtime for maintenance. The enhanced seal is now available in the company’s FleetLine commercial truck, trailer, and bus shocks and GasSLX adjustable shocks.
The demanding conditions present in heavy-duty vehicle applications cause misting in all shock absorbers over time. Misting occurs when the oil within the shock absorber, critical to ride control performance, slowly leaks out of a seal in the product, cots the outside of the shock absorber, and accumulates dust and debris. This oil escape causes diminished shock absorbing capabilities and eventual product failure.
With Gabriel’s improved misting-reduction seal technology, oil escape is reduced by up to 70% over time. This leads to extended service life for the company’s heavy-duty shock absorbers, as well as improved performance over time as compared to competing technologies.
