Analysis to Reduce the Sliding Friction of Power Steering Rod Seals 980583
We developed the method to reduce the sliding friction of power steering rod seals by changing a lip configuration without lowering any interference and radial load. The data of various items and friction on several kinds of samples were analyzed in order to obtain how to reduce sliding friction. The sliding friction can be possibly analyzed in using the lubrication theory. The contact width and oil film thickness are important factors.
