For over 30 years Pantecnica is exclusive partner of ElringKlinger-Engineered Plastics for the Italian market. The company presents many solutions in PTFE for the food industry, among which there are Radiaflon PTFE/compound seals, ideal for all applications (high pressures, high speeds, poor lubrication), where elastomeric solutions cannot provide high performances.
Used on rotating shafts, they provide high chemical resistance. Suitable for CIP and SIP sterilization, the gaskets offer following technical characteristics: pressure up to 15 bar in standard execution; peripheral speed >35 m/s; temperature from -60 to +200 °C; standard executions HN2390 and HN2580.Special solutions include multi-lip seals , optimized to friction, with opposed seals, single lip, with hydrodynamic lip and lips with different thickness and pre-load.
In food and pharmaceutical processes, they are used on mixers and stirrers for liquids and powders, grinders, fillers, pumps and centrifuges. Copyright photo by ElringKlinger Engineered Plastics.
