Media-conducting lines must fulfil the fluidic and mechanical requirements applicable in each case.
External effects (e.g., engine vibrations or stimulation from the road surface) must neither affect their functional characteristics nor lead to damages to surrounding components.
The oil supply of a turbocharger is implemented via oil lines that establish a connection between the oil filter module and the turbocharger.
Coolant lines must fulfil the fluidic and mechanical requirements in the temperature range between -40°C and 135°C. They connect, e.g., the coolant circulating pump and the thermostat housing.
Fuel lines serve, among other things, to deliver liquid fuel to the direct injection system of an engine at an almost constant maximum pressure. These lines establish a tension-free connection from the fuel rail to the individual injectors.
To reduce emissions a part of the exhaust stream is fed back and added to the intake air (exhaust gas recirculation, EGR). The exhaust gas recirculation lines connect the exhaust manifold to the EGR valve.
Secondary air systems are, in particular, used with combustion engines that are charged with exhaust gas turbochargers. Using a secondary air injection pump surrounding air is sucked in and injected into the exhaust system via the secondary air lines. They connect the control valve to the exhaust manifold.
There are always new applications found for thermoplastics in its many different forms. Plastics can be â€˜tailoredâ€™ to almost every application. For the processing of thermoplastic, compact injection moulding is the ideal production process to meet even the highest requirements − the result: highly integrated functional parts.
