Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is launching a new line of conductive seals that are designed to allow for durable connections between housings and shafts, while preventing bearing damage from electricity and electromagnetic radiation. The first functional models should be available within the next few months.
Tim Leichner, Head of Strategic Product Advance Development at Freudenberg, said, “Our goal is to achieve constant resistance values over a long period of operation, even in adverse conditions.”
Francois Colineau, Head of Development of the new product line, said, “There is the possibility of doing even more with conductive seals. High electrical conductivity lends itself to possible shielding of disruptive electromagnetic radiation.”
