In the marine industry there are a lot different applications that are usable for the sealing technology. Sealings from high quality are critical, think about high engine efficiency, reduced smoke and gas emissions, short maintenance runs.
Ships need to sail and need propulsion to do so. Because of the seals the water does not come into the ships, it also keeps the essential lubricants in.
The requirements for performance and reliability are even higher at sea than on land. This suits the technological competence of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies just fine.
Today, around 15,000 large merchant vessels, cruise liners and icebreakers set sail with seals from Freudenberg Sealing Technologies. We provide complete solutions for drive and steering systems (e.g. engines, thrusters, rudder systems, stabilizers, and more) from a single source and put together sealing packages that are optimally matched in terms of materials and functionality. In many cases, customer-specific special solutions in special sealing materials and large dimensions are needed.
Extremely long maintenance intervals are essential for the economically efficient operation of “floating buildings”. This is where Freudenberg products stand out due to their durability and first-class quality, for more than forty years. Techniparts has an wide product range for seals that can be used for pumps, compressors and associated with the marine and shipping industry.
