How long does a seal last? Can seal replacement be integrated into the maintenance cycle of the plant before leakage or, in extreme cases, the failure of an entire machine or plant is imminent? And how can Freudenberg Sealing Technologies (FST) answer these questions, which are essential for customers both for the safe and sustainable as well as for the economically efficient operation of their plants?
In calculating this "best before date" for seals, FST, in cooperation with the Freudenberg Technology Innovation (FTI) Corporate Function, has moved into a new dimension in terms of forecasting accuracy. In this presentation, Dr. Christoph Naumann, Simulation Engineer, will introduce you to specially developed digital technologies and simulation methods that make it possible to realistically predict the service life of any seal geometry in various applications, thus generating decisive added value in the field of predictive maintenance.
