First-Class Engineering for a High-Demanding Environment

Sealing Solutions for Manufacturing

High functionality thanks to superior material quality: Seals from Freudenberg Sealing Technologies even withstand extremely high speeds and severe temperature fluctuations. This is essential for an environment as high-demanding as manufacturing. For our manufacturing customers, this means they can "drive" their machines faster and thus manufacture much more economically. Excellent seal effectiveness prevents leaks and the resulting machine breakdowns – reliably and lastingly. Costly downtime is eliminated. Service and repair expenses are also noticeably reduced.

To Strike While the Iron's Hot

An extremely contaminated environment, strong radiant heat or special, flame retardant media – in the iron and steel industry, there are particularly pronounced demands on people, material and technology. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies provides compact sealing systems that seal reliably even in such extremely harsh conditions accompanied by high operating life requirements.

They make a contribution to:

  • Better output with regard to quantity and quality accompanied by declining costs
  • Higher performance with more compact equipment
  • Less downtime
  • Longer maintenance cycles

Merkel Radiamatic RPM 41

Work rolls in cold or hot rolling mills are one example of the excellent performance that customers expect. The highest priority here is maximum protection for expensive antifriction bearings. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has developed a special Radial Shaft Seal especially for this purpose: Merkel Radiamatic RPM 41.
