PLYMOUTH, Mich. (March 2) — Simrit, the industrial sealing products division of Freudenberg-NOK, is bringing its proven Plug & Seal plug connection technology to the Americas, with the goal of helping manufacturers build more robust products at less cost, the company said.
The Plug & Seal connectors are specially designed to provide durable, leak-free connections between housings, pipes and assemblies which transport gases and liquids. The connector consists of a pipe section — made of steel, aluminum or plastic — covered on the outside with an elastomeric coating that incorporates sealing beads and shock absorbing ridges.
Simrit can design and manufacture individual product solutions using a wide range of elastomers to meet specific customer requirements and customize it accommodate internal and external sealing, as well as adding other functions.
Since their debut in Europe more than five years ago, Plug & Seal connectors have proven to be robust sealing solutions and are particularly popular with engine manufacturers who strive to achieve reliable performance over the longest life span, Simrit said.
Applications for the product include: the cooling, air and oil systems for gasoline and diesel engines; ancillary engine components, such as turbochargers, superchargers and intake manifolds; and transmission systems.
