Freudenberg Innovation Award 2016 awardee
Levitex by Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is the first virtually frictionless crankshaft seal. Levitex reduces friction by up to 90 percent compared to a conventional radial shaft seal. That means less fuel consumption, less wear and a longer service life. There are also environmental benefits: if every car in Germany were equipped with the Levitex technology, more than 440,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide would be saved each year.
