Freudenberg Process Seals Launches Fluoroprene XP 40 Sealing Material in the North American Market

Freudenberg Process Seals has introduced a new sealing material Fluoroprene XP 40 particularly for the North American market. The material is particularly designed to meet the stringent conditions of the food and beverage processing industry.

The new material offers greater advantage over traditional materials such as Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) and FKM. While EPDM is the regular material of choice in aqueous solutions, Clean-in-Place media and Sterilisation-in-Place media, it fails in media which contains high fat levels. To solve this, FKM is used for high fat content media or for high temperature levels but it fails when acid or other cleaning agents are used.

The new material has been developed keeping all these issues in mind. Hence it displays all the desirable properties such as resistance to temperatures ranging from 15°C-200°C and resistance to high fat media and other agents such as acids, flavouring agents, steam and bases. The sealing material is particularly suitable for products and manufacturing processes that use extensive processing and formulas.

In the beverage industry, flavouring agents are transferred from one batch to another. Fluoroprene XP 40 has been found to be durable during such processes after extensive testing. The material comes in dark blue colour and is available in the shape of O-rings, diaphragms and moulded parts. Its unique colour reduces the chances of mixing up with other materials and the adaptability and durability of the material enable lesser maintenance and lesser chance of seal failure.
