The HSD®-thrust washer (design flat & spherical) cares with the Hydro structure for a high performance functionality. The defined shape of the embossed oil pockets promotes the buoyancy function of the thrust washer. This hydrodynamic effect ensures a defined oil flow between the moving components in the overall system.
The clear advantages of this proprietary patented hydro-structure design are the significantly higher wear resistance and durability as well as improved starting behaviour compared to conventional designs.
The HSD®-thrust washer is developed and produced in flat & spherical (globular) design.
