Abstract

This disclosure concerns a filter element with elastomeric seal ring with integrated spacer. Spacer can adopt to various height based on the best and worst tolerance conditions. This functionality can be served by taking the advantage of elastomers flexibility. With suitable hardness and compression set property, similar response to change in height variation. Spacer can adopt to various height based on the best and worst tolerance conditions. Better damping can also be achieved in comparison to steel spacers. Profile based elastomer solution. Integration of both the functions in a single part helps to produce lesser number of parts. Multiple manufacturing processes can be avoided. Cost of tooling can be reduced. Better manufacturing feasibility due to simple design.
