Thrust bearings in new EGR valve help deliver environmental improvements

The Challenge

Taiho selects DuPont™ Vespel® thrust bearings  for a new EGR valve

Precisely controlled EGR valves are a critical component for achieving strict new emission standards for diesel engines. Vespel® bushings are helping to achieve these new levels of performance - in hot, dirty environments - by acting as the critical bearing surface in a new control - arm linkage designed by Taiho.

The Solution

Vespel® thrust bushings help achieve emission standards

Vespel® SP parts maintain consistent performance over the life of the EGR valve despite operating in a very aggressive environment. The long-term dependability of the bushing helps ensure compliance to new emission standards.
