Freudenberg Test Bench

The test bench at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies offers you new validation possibilities for perfectly matching seals to your individual process.

When planning new components, it is particularly important to have a partner who knows your requirements and supports you in minimizing development time and thus costs. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies attaches great importance to developing customer-specific sealing solutions in partnership with you and to providing excellent customer service. Our test bench enables you to carry out conclusive sealing tests under real conditions before series production begins. Seals can be tested in your customer-specific media, in all common CIP/SIP media and in steam and hot water sterilization. All types of elastomeric seals in valves and aggregates, such as O‑rings, diaphragms, molded parts and flap and profile seals, can be integrated and tested on the test bench. This enables you to make functional statements about the optimal seal before series production begins. This allows you to avoid costly field tests and subsequent modifications – a proactive development partnership that significantly increases the reliability and thus the cost-effectiveness of your valves and systems.

Test Methods and Possibilities

  • Testing of all types of elastomeric seals in valves and aggregates such as O‑rings, diaphragms, flap and profile seals, molded parts
