Levitex Revolutionizes Engine Seals
The European Union has set the goal of reducing overall CO2 emissions for newly registered cars to 95 g of CO2/km by the year 2020. Among other things, frictional losses in the engine and drive train must be reduced to achieve this objective. With the new Levitex seal, the loss of performance for a crankshaft seal is up to 95 percent less than for a standard PTFE seal. The remaining friction is solely due to air shear. This results in less fuel consumption, less wear and a longer service life. The CO2 emissions at the sealing point decline to less than 0.1 gram/km from 0.5 to 1 g under the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle).
Polyurethane Material For Applications Around The Globe
Hydraulic systems in mobile machinery often operate under extreme temperatures around the world. Seals made of appropriate materials are incorporated to guarantee a reliable function, whatever the conditions. More than 40 years ago, Freudenberg introduced a material made of polyurethane for high-performance seals, setting new standards in the process. Today, with the 94 AU 30000 polyurethane generation, it has succeeded in developing and manufacturing a new, outstanding basic material for seals. The company‘s core competencies include the development of its own materials.
