Greene Tweed, a leading global manufacturer of high-performance sealing solutions and engineered components, will be showcasing its products for the chemical processing, life sciences(pharmaceutical/analytical), and hydrogen/clean technologies markets at ACHEMA 2022, from August 22-26, 2022, at Messe Frankfurt GmbH in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, Hall 9.0, Booth B37.

Greene Tweed’s global team will be available to discuss the vast portfolio of elastomer, thermoplastic, and thermoplastic composite materials/products, capable of operating in the most chemically aggressive media, such as ethylene oxide. Several case studies will be available for detailed discussions focusing on challenging applications. Areas of focus will include Greene Tweed’s WR/AR and Xycomp composites which significantly reduce life cycle costs by greatly extending equipment mean-time between repair (MTBR), as well as increasing equipment efficiency.

On display will be Greene Tweed’s portfolio of sealing solutions for pharmaceutical processing, including seals, gaskets, o-rings, and MSE Metal Spring Energized seals that meet the industry’s stringent cleanliness, traceability, FDA, and regulatory compliance needs. Interested visitors can discuss custom-engineered solutions made from chemical-resistant Chemraz FFKM and Fusion FKM that meet or exceed quality requirements, including United States Pharmacopeia (USPVI), FDA, and ISO product standards. With low leachable profiles, these specialty compounds maintain their inert nature in highly demanding conditions.

Visitors to the booth can also see a wide range of solutions ideal for hydrogen valves, compressors, instrumentation, electrolysers, and fuel cells. Greene Tweed materials offer exceptional stability under hydrogen exposure and can withstand such challenges as hydrogen permeation, material outgassing, or degradation of mechanical properties at increased temperatures. The portfolio also includes materials to enhance fuel cell and electrolyser performance.
