In the extraction of active and valuable substances, aromatic and flavouring substances, the food and pharmaceutical industry is forced to make high demands concerning quality and economy of the extraction process. The CO2-method is therefore preferably used in the extraction of primary vegetable products. The optimal sequence of the process depends on the quality and the controllability of process data in the high pressure section. Efficient industrial utilization of this method requires high reliability and functionality of the most important technical system components. The pumps for increasing the pressure of the liquid CO2 therefore play a key role in the process, because these pumps can be reliably adapted to the CO2-conditions.

Servers have become an ever more important part in our daily lives because of the phenomenal growth in web hosting and cloud computing. Server reliability is crucial in sensitive industries like banks, insurance companies, major corporations, as well as for government agencies. Carrier France, a recognised supplier of energy-efficient cooling systems, has been relying on hermetic refrigerant pumps with canned motors made by Hermetic for years.
Perlast ICE G90LT is a 90 durometer, low temperature, perfluoroelastomer compound with exceptional explosive decompression (ED) resistance for high pressure environments. This material offers the chemical resistance superiority associated with perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) combined with low temperature capabilities down to -46°C (-51°F) making them suitable for use in API 6A and 6D wellhead equipment and pipeline valves.
Hermetic-Pumpen GmbH has set out guidelines for the further development and expansion of the company, as agreed at a general meeting. Substantial investment in the site in Gundelfingen and extensive restructuring are planned. In order to help ensure the sustained growth of the company, the executive board was expanded on 1st July 2012 and changes were made in the assignment of responsibilities:
- Mr. Nicolaus Krämer is now chairman of the executive board and also continues to be in charge of sales.
- Ms. Christiane Krämer remains responsible for administration, finance and human resources.
- Mr. Christian Dahlke is a newly appointed member of the executive board. He is responsible for operational activities in the areas of purchasing, logistics, production, after-sales service and quality assurance.
- Dr. Roland Krämer is responsible for research and development along with project- and customer-specific development.
