Written by: Freudenberg Sealing Technologies

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is one of four finalists in the "large company" category in the 35th German Industry Innovation Award competition.


Innovation Levitex

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.


The winner will be announced on April 16, 2016, at a gala event in Darmstadt. We have been nominated for our gas-lubricated mechanical face seal "Levitex", which can drastically reduce frictional losses in engines while lowering CO2 emissions by 0.5 to 1 gram per kilometer – true to our slogan "LESS is more". With LESS – Low Emission Sealing Solutions – we are demonstrating our substantial know-how and making a contribution to the environmentally friendly transportation of the future.

Learn more about "Levitex" and about LESS.
