Freudenberg Sealing Technologies’ smart seals make predictive maintenance possible, enabling you to prevent leaks proactively as well as to avoid inadvertently replacing good products prematurely – all by carefully monitoring the seal’s condition. The special seal becomes a sensor. It can measure its own level of wear and send the data to a monitoring system as an electrical impulse.
Our experts will be happy to discuss your individual requirements and how this innovative sealing solution can support your efforts regarding Industry 4.0.
While developing the new PTFE shaft seal Gerromatic G 61 for the process industry, our engineers looked closely at natural phenomena. As such, it combines analogies from nature with the precision of modern production processes. The design of the sealing lip distributes the pressure to utilize a wider contact zone for the fluid film between the shaft and sealing lip. This leads to better friction behavior and less wear while ensuring leak-free functioning. Additionally, the PTFE material impresses with low heat generation and very good wear behavior. This vastly extends the lifetime of the seal.
Our experts for the process industry are happy to give you more detailed information about our innovations.
Since 2016, China has had its own requirements for the food and beverage industry: GB 4806 and GB 9685. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has developed special sealing materials that comply not only with these new standards, but also with global requirements such as those issued by the American FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or the European EU (Reg.) 1935/2004. Currently the portfolio includes EPDM-compounds (75 EPDM 386, 70 EPDM 382, 85 EPDM 387), silicones (70 VMQ 117055, 60 VMQ 117117) and plastics such as PTFE V037, Polyamide 12G 37599 and Polyethylene E083. We are happy to support you and your business partners in China with your individual requirements.
The newly developed material 75 Fluoroprene® XP 45 is optimized for use with metal parts. It complies with all relevant standards in the food and beverage industry, such as those issued by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or EU (Reg.) 1935/2004. In addition, its resistance to fatty media as well as acids and aggressive CIP/SIP media is an outstanding performance feature. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies offers a new Simmerring® for the food and beverage industry that is made of 75 Fluoroprene® XP 45.
