Turcon® M12, the breakthrough PTFE based material launched this year by Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, has received a 2011 Innovation Award from Flow Control Magazine. The magazine recognizes 10 fluid handling technologies for novel solutions in the areas of fluid measurement, control and containment.
Unrivalled material characteristics
Turcon® M12 is a PTFE based sealing material whose performance is unrivaled in key hydraulic sealing characteristics, such as friction, wear and high-pressure operation. Extensive testing shows that Turcon® M12 is resistant to virtually all media, including a broad range of lubricants, and has outstanding wear resistance and friction characteristics. The cost-effective material also provides customers with extended seal life, as well as a wide operating window in terms of temperature, pressure and velocity.
“We believe the technologies named as winners in this year’s Flow Control Innovation Awards program represent some truly cutting-edge designs that offer unique solutions to real-world fluid handling application issues,” says Flow Control’s Executive Director of Content Matt Migliore. “We offer our sincere congratulations to the manufacturers of the winning technologies and much thanks to all of our readers and website visitors who placed votes in this year’s Innovation Awards program.”
Better on almost every parameter
“Turcon® M12 has exceeded even our expectations and in our opinion no other material can give such universally exceptional performance,” Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Product Manager in Fort Wayne, Indiana, U.S, Nancy Getz. “On almost every parameter it is better than, sometimes very significantly, previously recommended compounds or was at least equal to them. Despite the outstanding performance of many of our sealing materials, we don’t often stand up and say that this is the best in market. But Turcon® M12 is truly unrivaled. It can fit virtually all hydraulic applications and meet a more universal range of applications.”
