Addressing the changing requirements for turbocharger hoses

Reduce failures, repair costs, redesign, and warranty claims with Viton™ fluoroleastomers for turbochager hoses

Materials used to make the hoses need to strike a balance between different requirements

Changes in automobile design, the rise of technologies to increase fuel economy and reduce emission as well as extended warranties, have affected the conditions to which turbocharger hoses are exposed. Consideration of these conditions can help determine the appropriate material to use for turbocharger hose applications.
Selecting the right material to add during the manufacturing process requires a good evaluation of the material’s properties, including temperature, chemical, and fuel permeation resistance, as well as durability.
