Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, a manufacturer of engineered sealing applications, recently opened an engineering service center in North America as part of its global radial shaft seal operations. The center, located at the company’s Ashland, New Hampshire, oil seal facility, offers access to advanced testing protocols and validation measures.
The 3,100-square-foot Ashland service center, first conceptualized in 2016, has been equipped with state-of-the-art test rigs and other equipment that can track pressure, temperature, frictional torque, speed capabilities, changes in mechanical properties, characterization of tribological system interactions, leak detection, and failure analysis in seals and sealing components.
With radial shaft seals in use in seemingly unlimited industrial applications – from tiny seals for use in micro actuators to massive designs for ship engines – Freudenberg’s engineering service centers are a one-stop-shop for often complex and expensive sealing system testing and validation efforts.
