From medical technology, mechanical and chemical engineering, to mining, PTFE rotary shaft seals are used in many industries.

A typical area of ​​application is in the field of ​​screw compressors. Indeed, compressed air is used in many production areas:

  • Control of valves and cylinders
  • Blowing
  • Bottling
  • Cleaning
  • Mixing
  • Transit
  • Packing

Required properties of the shaft seal:

  • Low maintenance due to highly wear-resistant F10PTFE compounds
  • Sufficient flexibility and pre-tensioning at a peripheral speed of up to 20 m/s
  • Tightness when the sealing lip is loaded with a slight vacuum up to pressure surges of 15 bar
  • Use of a shaft protection sleeve or a second sealing lip with return feed. In this way, the tightness is optimized again with many cycles of operation.

Fluorten is the right partner for a wide range of seals and high-performance plastics and meets the demanding requirements of its customers.
