IncWell's partner seeks technology capable of preventing or removing moisture accumulation with a gearbox housing.
During the assembly of an automotive gearbox, the potential exists for moisture to adhere to the components. Additionally, during normal operation, the gearbox "breathes" - it brings in outside air from a vent, air which contains a variable amount of ambient moisture. Regardless of how the water vapor enters the system, it then mixes with the lubricating oil and introduces negative impacts on the operation of the unit.
IncWell's partner is looking to identify technologies that can either:
The solution should allow for direct oil contact (if removing water from the oil), have minmal power requirements and, ideally, derive its power from the oil itself (heat cold oil during water uptake, cool oil during water removal).
The successful technology will:
IncWell's partner is open to all approaches.
