The reliable sealing of drilled holes in high pressure systems guarantees the flawless and ecologically safe functioning of engines, gearboxes and other automotive components and systems as well as hydraulic applications, and thus plays a key role for the safety of cars, equipment and tools, as well as people and the environment.
KOENIG EXPANDER® and KOENIG RESTRICTOR® are worldwide benchmarks for the instant and reliable sealing of drilled holes and best-in-class flow control and regulation of liquids. Extremely versatile, these products have established themselves as components of choice in many industrial sealing and hydraulics applications (Automotive, mobile hydraulics, equipment manufacture, and aerospace).
In the field of sealing technology SFC KOENIG offers a wide range of KOENIG EXPANDER® plugs for quick and reliable sealing of drilled holes up to pressures of 2500 bar. KOENIG EXPANDER® is a metal to metal solution for sealing auxiliary holes, available in both push (ball) style and pull style.
In the field of flow control SFC KOENIG offers KOENIG RESTRICTOR® as a metal to metal solution for controlling the flow in a fluid system (orifice restrictor). The expansion type KOENIG RESTRICTOR® orifices are highly reliable solutions for precision flow control and regulation.
Our sealing and flow control solutions install into a drilled hole with no reaming required. The metal to metal seal eliminates potential for leaks associated with O-rings, gaskets or other traditional sealing methods. Contamination risk is minimized, with no tapping and threading or application of additional adhesives/sealing compounds required.
SFC KOENIG does not just supply standard products and individual components, but also provides close and active customer support in the search for ideal solutions, particularly when specific requirements must be fulfilled. This portfolio is complemented by a range of innovative tools and machines as well as, if needed, the integration into automated serial production workflows. Our installation equipment is designed to increase the speed and efficiency of the installation process, saving valuable time and labor.
