Smart Seals

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.

The main benefits for you
  • Use of the seal over its optimal lifetime
  • Predictive maintenance resulting in longer maintenance cycles
  • Real-time performance measurement
  • Characteristics that go far beyond the sealing function

O-Ring

Gerromatic

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.

The main benefits for you
  • Long lifetime
  • Very good anti-wear properties
  • Leak-free sealing thanks to the retained structure
  • High media and temperature resistance
  • Compliance with food and beverage industry requirements
  • Suitable for CIP/SIP cleaning processes
