The engineers at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies have come very close to the vision of a frictionless seal: The Levitex crankshaft seal creates an air cushion that seals the engine compartment with virtually no friction. Levitex can thus reduce the CO2 emissions of vehicles by 0.5 to 1 gram per kilometer. read more
Germany is known worldwide for its cars and autobahns, its beer and its pioneering role in the energy transition. Today, all of these issues – from mobility to climate change – are not just purely German. They are global in scope as well. And from this standpoint, they are discussed in the latest edition of the customer magazine ESSENTIAL. read more
Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is introducing a new generation of polyurethane for seals that sets new standards. Freudenberg's development of its own materials is an important core competency. The company has succeeded in manufacturing a basic material for seals with a far longer operating life than the materials used so far. The new generation of polyurethane was developed for a wide array of uses. It offers superb performance in heat and cold, can be used in mineral hydraulic fluids at up to 120°C, and is safe from damage due to hydrolysis even when used in water heated to 80°C. But the material is also a genuine high performer when it comes to pressure. In a comparison test with various extrusion gaps, seals with the new generation of polyurethane show no appreciable sign of wear, while conventional seals malfunction prematurely. Its tensile strength also far surpasses current possibilities, measuring around 25 megapascals, or 35 percent above other materials.
You can still avert a costly line stop. Freudenberg Xpress delivers tailor-made seals in genuine material quality – if needed, within 24 hours.
We cannot rest on our laurels. Right from the start of a new project, our engineers face a strong headwind. Because every industry sector and every application poses new challenges and requires new solutions. One size will not fit all. So, whether we like it or not, we have to reinvent the wheel every time – especially, if that wheel has to withstand unbelievable speeds.
Whether it is a mighty tunnel boring machine or the world’s largest bucket-wheel excavator – spectacular mining machines put our imagination to the test. Extreme dimensions and incredible stresses and strains. No off the shelf seal will do the job. Our experts are digging deep to offer our clients the perfect tailor-made solution – from the world’s smallest Simmerring to the world’s largest sealing ring. That’s our commitment.
The Queen Mary 2” rules the waves. Our Commercial Marine Division makes sure the majestic passenger ship, featuring four gigantic low-vibration propellers, keeps cruising at a breathtaking speed of 30 knots (35 mph). Freudenberg high-tech sealing solutions prevent saltwater from entering the drive-enclosure and oil from leaking into the ocean. This is quintessential Freudenberg Sealing Technology. We work unseen and invisibly – but we keep things moving.
We make sure the fast-growing demand for new energy solutions is met by high-performance applications. Wind power! We transform one of the world's oldest energy sources into a high-tech solution. State of the art Ventoguard seals improve the technical abilities of wind turbines. Longer service cycles, resistance to adverse weather conditions, significant cost advantages - Freudenberg Sealing Technologies keeps the wheels spinning.
