Freudenberg Sealing Technologies (FST) is offering bespoke flange seals developed for customer-specific sealing grooves in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industries via its authorised UK distributor Dichtomatik Ltd.
Freudenberg’s experts can develop a new design of flange seal for each customer’s requirements. Factors such as prevailing pressures and temperatures, the product and cleaning media, and the dimensions and process-related variance of the sealing groove, are important. The company’s tailor-made solutions enable hygienic sealing, flush with the product. The flange seal neither protrudes into the product area, nor does it rebound.
FST can also offer a design for special housings in the process industry. According to FEM analyses, the company’s design provides improved hygienic sealing when compared with conventional flange seals. The seal also provides an easily cleanable solution in non-rotationally symmetric systems and standard housings. The material variants deployed, such as EPDM or HNBR, show high resistance to CIP/SIP media and meet the requirements of the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA), making it suitable for use in the demanding operating conditions in food, beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical applications.
