CoorsTek to Feature High-Performance Ceramic Seal and Bearing Elements at Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia
September 12 2018
Innovative CoorsTek technical ceramic seals and bearing components improve performance and lifetime of rotating equipment
Golden, Colorado, USA ─ CoorsTek, the world’s leading technical ceramics manufacturer, will be showcasing its portfolio of advanced ceramic seal and bearing components at the 2018 Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia (TPS) next week in Houston, Texas. Advanced ceramics outperform and outlast conventional metals and polymers and are some of the only materials which can endure the grueling demands of rotating equipment.
At TPS, CoorsTek will highlight examples of how its advanced ceramic components are engineered to improve performance and extend life for centrifugal pumps, compressors, and turbomachinery. “Rotating equipment suppliers, mechanical seal OEMs, and bearing manufacturers are choosing ceramic components when they need reliable performance and lower life cycle costs,” explains Lloyd Sobel, Ceramic Applications Adviser at CoorsTek. “For example, ceramic seal faces used in dry gas seals deliver superior performance and dramatic operational savings while preventing fugitive emissions.”
Mr. Sobel will be presenting “High-Performance Ceramics in Mechanical Seal Assemblies” at the Innovation Presents stage at 3:30 pm on Tuesday. The company is also showcasing solutions in its booth including:
UltraSiC™ seal faces —high performance silicon carbide parts which typically double seal life compared to conventional seals through stable non-contacting operation at higher speeds and temperatures, reduced friction, and superior dry run performance.
Cerbec® ceramic bearing components — precision silicon nitride balls and rollers which improve performance while reducing total cost of operations – 120% harder, 75% smoother, and 50% lighter than steel.
