Technologically and logistically unique
Market and technological expertise in the processing industryExtreme temperature conditions, aggressive media, high hygienic standards and safety requirements – the demands on the food, beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical industries are unique technologically as well as logistically.
As a sealing partner with the processing industry, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies combines materials competency and the capacity to produce sealing innovations with the special know-how of a market specialist in process technology. The result is a product and service portfolio that is unmatched in the market.
Quality creates functional reliability
For the customer, this combination of technological competence and industry-specific experience leads to flawless quality, high functional reliability and economically efficient seal management.
Among other things, this includes:
- Individualized, made-to-order materials and product development
- Logistical approaches that guarantee the rapid, cost-effective availability of components, even in small batches.
- Services specifically oriented to the demanding technical and business needs of equipment manufacturers and operators in the processing industry: for example, market-specific, application-related consulting that includes verified evidence of stability before the launch of series production.
Other industry-specific services
The requirements of the processing industry begin with the precise specification of the material and design. One example of many: the specifications of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These stringent rules influence the research and development activities of an entire sector. It follows that the right seal material is the key to success in the processing industry. Clean sealing solutions based on hygienic design demand the highest possible materials expertise, which results in premium materials.
Important sealing materials
The most important sealing materials in the processing industry are
- EPDM (ethylene propylene diene rubber)
- Fluoroprene® XP
- FKM (fluororubber)
- Simriz® (perfluoroelastomer)
- NBR (acrylonitrile butadiene rubber)
- HNBR (hydrogenated acrylonitrile butadiene rubber)
- VMQ (silicone rubber)
- PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene)
- PEEK (polyetheretherketone)
- POM (polyoxymethylene), PA (polyamide) and PU (polyurethane)
The Freudenberg Sealing Technologies resistances database for the processing industry contains concentrated specialized knowledge. It is an important element of a market-specific, application-related consultation. Just for CIP/SIP cleaning media, the database includes numerous analyzed recipes and several individual measurements on the behavior of sealing materials in different media at a range of temperatures.
Seals are an indispensable A-part from a functional standpoint, but a C-part from an economic standpoint – Freudenberg Sealing Technologies closes this gap with efficient C-parts management. It ensures rapid availability for customers and optimizes their processing, carrying and storage costs.
