Safety and Quality Throughout the Entire Process

Similar to the pharmaceutical industry, the chemical industry also imposes special requirements on seals due to the routine use of aggressive substances and dangerous liquids. Furthermore, these seals and gaskets must endure extreme temperatures and maintain their integrity under demanding conditions on a daily basis.

In critical applications such as generators, reactors, pipelines, or stirrers, it is absolutely vital to prevent any leakage of hazardous materials. Faulty or unreliable sealing systems can lead to catastrophic outcomes in the chemical industry, resulting in financial losses amounting to millions.

Kofler - Dichtungen is well-acquainted with the chemical industry's complex processes and crafts its products with utmost dedication and extensive expertise to meet operational demands. This ensures the constant provision of safety and quality.

Sealing Technology for the Chemical Industry

Sealing solutions for the chemical industry

The chemical industry deals with a wide variety of substances, facilities, and processes, each demanding specific requirements for seals and gaskets. Therefore, it is absolutely essential to ensure the best possible sealing of all machinery and equipment at all times.

Given the stringent demands of various factors, tailor-made sealing solutions are necessary. These must adhere to the FDA’s (Food and Drug Administration) rigorous standards and require specific certifications.

Kofler - Dichtungen provides your company with standard seals, specialized seals, and custom-designed seals and gaskets. This allows us to supply the appropriate seal for any area of application, thereby enhancing your company's process optimization.

Interesting Facts from Sealing Technology

Dichtungen und Materialien in der Dichtungstechnik

Sealing Materials, and Elastomers: An Overview

Elastomers, as sealing materials, encompass various substances for specified applications in seal engineering. Elastomers are dimensionally stable and elastically deformable plastics. A prime example is rubber bands. While they maintain their shape, they also possess elastic characteristics and tensile stress due to an entropic effect (entropy elasticity). Elastomers are cross-linked through covalent bonds between molecule chains (macromolecules), similar to thermosetting plastics. This rubber-like elasticity occurs as the tangled polymer chains respond to tensile stress by stretching or disentangling.
