Expert Diaphragm Seal Design and Engineering
Freudenberg puts the best engineers in the industry to work for you, with more than 50 years of experience in designing and manufacturing elastomer seals with fabric reinforcement, different types of inserts for example for flush diaphragm seals and PTFE foil coating. From our leadership at the emergence of the diaphragm seal industry through our continued growth and experience, Freudenberg has become the market leader in Europe for diaphragm seals and runs global operations. We offer extensive process design support (including simulation capabilities - FEA) and pressure testing process facilities to ensure high quality, reliable diaphragm seals for your applications with for process fluids and different fill fluids.
Leadership in Seal Design
Freudenberg excels in flanged diaphragm seals and other internal diaphragm seal designs, with engineers experienced in designing the optimum part for the application and selecting the styles and materials that will work best. We also offer the opportunity for you to collaborate directly with Freudenberg experts at your site at any point during the product development process, enabling you to gain competitive advantages from our expertise.
Freudenberg experts can discuss innovations, products, and advancements, and will share their insights on mechanical seal considerations, rubber and fabric selection, diaphragm styles and construction, and other factors like flanges specific to your custom sealing needs.
In-House Testing and Validation
At our in-house application test facility, we are able to design and test custom diaphragm seals, accurately assessing and verifying product behavior during the development. We offer a range of comprehensive tests including flow tests, consumer good life-cycle testing, and heat age or accelerated life-cycle testing through pressure instruments and transmitters, and we custom-design tests to meet customer specifications. Freudenberg diaphragms for flange connections are manufactured from compounds certified for use in specific applications, helping to ensure that your products will comply with local, national, and international standards.
FDA, KTW, ACS, USP Class VI, UL157, NSF 51, 3-A® Sanitary Standards, DVGW (German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water) approval according to the norm DIN EN 549 for elastomers and fabric (NBR and FKM for gas applications in combination with different types of fabric).
With more than 600 conventional elastomer blends, we provide one of the world’s largest materials offerings, covering virtually all standard elastomers, including NBR, CR, VMQ and EPDM. We also utilize high-performance, high-temperature resistant elastomers such as CIIR, ECO, FKM, CSM, HNBR, FVMQ and FFKM for example for chemical seals.
We have materials which conform to industry-specific application standards or are approved by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
In the processing industry, diaphragm seals are mostly found in actuators, fittings, hydraulic accumulators, pumps, compressors, valves and regulators in the food industry.
The main technical features of composite diaphragms consist of elastomer material (flexibility and tightness), PTFE Foil.
Freudenberg thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) diaphragms are manufactured from compounds certified for use in specific applications, helping to ensure that your products will comply with local, national, and international standards.
Reinforced Diaphragms with Dispersed Fibre Technology (DFT®)
Freudenberg developed a unique and innovative method of producing fabric reinforced diaphragms, by dispersing fibres within the rubber compound.
