For this project we were approached by our customer with the question of; “Can you help us with your magic insulation to stop our gearbox cooking…”
The customers problem was that the exhaust pipes run really close to the gearbox (picture below). The car is also run in extreme temperatures, such as running in the La Carrera Pan Americana (Mexico).. With the gearbox over heating this was costing a lot of time and money with maintenance work.
With our thermal management solution, our customer is gaining many advantages.
- Reduction in temperature around the gearbox
- Surface temperature reduction of the exhaust pipe
- Cost saving in maintenance work to the gearbox
- Able to drive the car in high temperature areas for longer time
- And lets face it…. It looks way cooler than it did before. (never mind the pun)
