FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2013) - Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will exhibit specialized precision seals and bearings that are proven for use in food, beverage and pharma equipment at this year's Process Expo held November 3-6 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, booth # 3239. Additionally, there will be a highlight on Trelleborg's Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) technology, addressing custom precision parts and components with tight tolerances in liquid silicone and multi-component materials for use in bioprocessing, food, beverage, or pharmaceutical applications.
Trelleborg's silicone center of excellence, LSR technology can be leveraged utilizing its ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications and an ISO Class 7 and ISO Class 8 cleanrooms. Trelleborg's advanced capabilities enhance product design and performance helping customers maintain a competitive advantage. The company is uniquely placed to offer a dedicated design and development service for sealing solutions, globally servicing, supporting and supplying customers through an unrivaled international network.
Marty Hugney, Segment Manager, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Americas, says: "Leveraging Trelleborg's 50 years of experience, we are excited to share our expertise with Process Expo attendees and directly address their challenging food and beverage processing needs. Our elastomer compounds deliver exceptional tribological and sealing ability -- combine that with our seals and bearings being able to withstand high temperatures, pressures and cleaning regimes, it means we are in a great position to provide one-stop-shop sealing solutions aiding engineering design for equipment manufacturers."
As one of the first precision seal and bearing suppliers that passed a third-party verification inspection for the 3-A Sanitary Standard number 20-27 for thermoplastic materials in addition to receiving NSF Food Safety accreditation, Trelleborg's compounds are proven, safe and reliable. For instance, Turcon® Variseal® Hi-Clean reduces contamination and aids in the cleaning in place and sterilization in place process within food machines due to its seal geometry.
In addition, Trelleborg's Turcon® PTFE-based products inhibit sticking due to low friction characteristics, even after extended periods of rest. Turcon® Variseal® is ideal for use in pumps and valves and designed to last longer, provide better wear resistance, and offer reduced leakage, lower friction and downtime. Trelleborg's FDA-compliant Turcon® MF material offering was developed to satisfy many food industry certifications, while withstanding aggressive cleaning fluids and steam at extreme temperatures.
