LIFT-O-MAT TCV (Temperature Compensation Valve)

LOM TCV

The Temperature-Compensated Gas Spring

The force required to operate a lid is also affected by the ambient temperature. In cool weather it may not stay open safely despite high force application, while very high temperatures make closing it more difficult; the lid will then barely close.

To minimize the influence of heat and cold on the functional properties of a lid, there is LIFT-O-MAT TCV from STABILUS. This gas spring supports closing at high temperatures. At the same time, it will hold the open tailgate safely in position at temperatures below 0˚C.

Function

The LIFT-O-MAT TCV is a gas pressure spring that can compensate even for extreme temperature fluctuations. It has an additional gas-filled temperature compensation chamber that is separated by a valve. At temperatures above 0˚C, this valve will close automatically, closing off the additional gas chamber. This will result in the force of the gas spring dropping, and the lid can be closed more easily.

Advantages

  • Lid will also stay safely open at temperatures below 0˚C
  • Improved opening behavior at low temperatures
  • Low manual forces for closing at high temperatures

Applications

  • Trunks and tailgates
