Sealing Technologies for the Process Industry

High-Performance Products and Materials for Demanding Applications

Dichtomatik Americas, a brand of Freudenberg, can now support our industrial distribution partners with Dichtomatik & Freudenberg products.  The process industries Food and Beverage, Chemical, and Pharmaceutical demand both the high quality materials FST can produce, and also the expertise behind the industry requirements and regulations.   Dichtomatik will support these segments with on-site engineering assistance, product recommendations, and inventory based on your requirements.

Demanding applications in the process industry require specific know-how and well-founded materials expertise. As a subsidiary of Freudenberg, Dichtomatik can offer a broad product range and specific materials with international approvals which adhere to standards such as FDA, USP Class VI, NSF and regulation (EU) 1935/2004, as well as seals based on hygienic design.

Solutions for the Food & Beverage Industry – The food industry includes a wide variety of applications with distinct requirements. The diversity of products and the use of numerous flavors can have varying effects on sealing materials. Furthermore, equipment is increasingly operated at full capacity, which requires more frequent product changes and cleaning cycles. Freudenberg offers materials that prevent flavor transfer and reduce the im­pact of frequent product changes.

Solutions for the Pharmaceutical Industry – In the pharmaceutical industry, sealing solutions are in de­mand that avoid process contaminants and even catalytic changes, over and above the excellent media resistance that they offer. The requirements for seal robustness are very high, e.g. in tablet production where powders are processed.

Solutions for the Chemical Industry – Processes in the chemical industry involve especially high temperatures and pressures that conventional seals and gaskets cannot withstand. Aggressive process media such as ammonia, acids, and bases can dissolve seals. Freudenberg has developed extremely resistant materials to meet these requirements.

How can you find out how if the material you what to use is compatible with the chemical used in your application?  Access the Chemical Resistance Guide to see what medium and materials will work best together.
