PTFE rotary shaft seals are the perfect choice in applications where the operational parameters are too severe for traditional elastomer solutions. High shaft speeds, oil free operation, high pressure, long life and low friction are some of the parameters which align perfectly with the performance characteristics of the PTFE seals manufactured by ElringKlinger. We have a comprehensive range of standard ‘off the shelf’ seals to cover a wide range of applications. We also specialise in custom solutions which are often produced to offer a ‘no compromise’ solution to a specific set of operational parameters.
ElringKlinger specialise in the manufacture of PTFE sealing solutions for reciprocating and rotary compressors/vacuum pumps. Our solutions have proven themselves to offer the very best levels of sealing efficiency and durability in a broad range of applications that include large industrial, scientific, laboratory and portable equipment. Our material technology and manufacturing capability combine perfectly to offer a range of products that deliver consistent and reliable performance.
Part of the ElringKlinger group, Polytetra are manufacturers of a comprehensive range of PTFE, FEP and PFA dual and single wall heat shrink tubing. Our range includes standard, thin and thick walled products often used as insulation in high temperature, corrosive or low friction applications. Commonly found in aerospace, automotive, offshore, medical and chemical process industries, our manufacturing technology and technical know-how enables our heat shrink tubes to deliver consistent performance and long term reliability.
Seals manufactured from PTFE materials can offer significant advantages over alternative thermoplastic and elastomeric materials. Low friction, high speed, high pressure, dry running and almost universal chemical resistance are some of the benefits that our unique material technology is able to deliver. ElringKlinger have a long and established pedigree designing and manufacturing a range of reciprocating, rotary and static seal systems that allow our customers to extend the performance of their products or operate their equipment with greater reliability and efficiency.
Having developed an enviable range of high performance PTFE compounds, ElringKlinger have the materials and manufacturing capability to offer an impressive range of semi-finished and finished products. Based on the experience gained over the last 50 years, we are able to select the correct compound for an application or develop a new, application specific material ideally suited and without compromise. To ensure consistent and reliable performance, all materials and final products are rigorously tested in our laboratory or by dynamic testing.
As one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of PTFE products, ElringKlinger have an enviable reputation for their solutions based approach to sealing problems. Using the unique properties of PTFE, Elringklinger can produce high performance sealing systems which are perfectly aligned to a particular set of application parameters. Supported with an ‘in house’ test facility, state of the art manufacturing and a TS16949 quality system, Elringklinger are the perfect partner to help customers improve the performance of their products and equipment.
ElringKlinger have developed an enviable range of rotary seal solutions ideally suited for harsh applications. PTFE shaft seals are the perfect choice when the operational parameters cause premature failure of traditional sealing products. High shaft speeds, oil free operation, high pressure, long life and low friction are some of the parameters which align perfectly with the performance characteristics of the PTFE seals manufactured by ElringKlinger.
Manufacturing high performance sealing systems has been the focus of ElringKlinger over the last 50 years. PTFE spring energised seals are the perfect choice in applications where aggressive media, micro emulsions or dry gases are the media to be sealed. Having an impressive -90°C to +300°C temperature capability, PTFE spring energised seals can deliver low frictional characteristics even at elevated pressures and can be used in a wide range of rotary, reciprocating and static applications.
Elringklinger specialise in the design and manufacture of PTFE diaphragms that are widely used in the pump and valve industry. The unique properties of PTFE make them an ideal choice for applications that require FDA approval or high levels of chemical inertness. Our materials have been specifically developed to have outstanding levels of fatigue resistance which deliver reliability and long term performance in a wide range of applications.
Having developed an impressive manufacturing capability over the last 50 years, Elringklinger are one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of PTFE bellows. Understanding the unique characteristics of PTFE and having the know how to generate solutions in response to a particular application, has given ElringKlinger an enviable reputation. Used in a wide range of filling systems, dosing equipment, valves, metering devices and expansion joints our PTFE bellows deliver outstanding levels of performance and durability.
Seals manufactured from high performance PTFE compounds can often be the perfect solution for applications that require high pressure sealing systems. ElringKlinger have an impressive range of rotary and reciprocating products that are designed to deliver outstanding performance across a range of harsh applications. Material technology and design are at the heart of being able to manufacture seals that allow our customers to extend the operational boundaries of their products or operate their equipment with greater reliability and efficiency.
As one of Europe’s leading producers of PTFE and filled PTFE products, ElringKlinger have an unrivalled manufacturing capability. Spread across 3 factories, we have the ability to manufacture single parts up to 3000mm diameter for oil and gas applications or smaller parts for high volume automotive and industrial markets. All semi-finished parts are manufactured ‘in house’ using pressed, isostatic or ram extruded processes and qualified to ISO/TS16949 quality standards.
Part of the ElringKlinger group, Polytetra are one of Europe’s leading producers of PTFE Heat Exchangers. Thermoron® and Polytetraflon® products are successfully used in a broad range of galvanic processing, chemical, pharmaceutical, semi-conductor and industrial industries. Manufactured from Fluoropolymer materials such as PFA, ECTFE, PTFE or PVDF, our heat exchangers offer outstanding performance when the application demands high chemical or temperature resistance. A range of shell and tube, plug in, modular or bespoke systems can be manufactured to integrate perfectly with a specific piece of equipment.
Throughout the development of their range of PTFE solutions, Elringklinger have always been at the forefront of material technology and the development of high performance compounds. PTFE Moldflon® is a unique fluoropolymer which not only has all the physical attributes associated with PTFE but can be also be processed using injection moulding processes. This allows engineers greater freedom of design compared to alternative fluoropolymer systems that rely on traditional machining to generate the finished product. The superior mechanical properties of PTFE Moldflon® can be combined with special fillers to achieve a material with outstanding performance that can be economically produced.
Part of the ElringKlinger group, Polytetra are one of Europes leading manufacturers of Heatflon® immersion heaters. Developed primarily for use with aggressive chemicals, our PTFE immersion heaters are now used across a range of metal processing, semiconductor, chemical and laboratory applications.
