Technical Program


Improve your seal face & bearing performance with CoorsTek advanced ceramics

Reduce risk. Lower your total cost of operations. Accelerate projects.

Durable ceramic components outlast severe wear, erosion, and corrosion.

Compressors, centrifugal pumps, face seal rings, and bearings see the most punishing conditions in today's turbomachinery - particularly when the application includes abrasive or corrosive media, high speed rotation, or elevated temperature and pressure. CoorsTek advanced ceramic components make your equipment more reliable and more productive by extending life and reducing downtime. As the leader in custom ceramic components engineered specifically for turbomachinery and pump applications, CoorsTek partners with turbo & pump OEMs as well as mechanical seal and bearing companies worldwide to deliver durable ceramic parts that help your rotating equipment last longer. Come see us at booth #2348 and we'll discuss how we can improve performance in your application. Here are a few examples of how CoorsTek engineered ceramics have helped our customers ...

Ceramic Seal Faces

Reduce risk:

Your mechanical seals need to prevent leakage, period. Whether your turbo or pump sees abrasive fluid, corrosive gas, high RPM, or elevated temperature and pressure - CoorsTek ceramic seal faces can assure you high performance over a longer useful life.

Ceramic Seal Faces
Ceramic Bearing Components

Improve uptime & productivity:

Keep your turbomachinery, compressors, and pumps rotating smoothly and reliably with a longer MTBR useful life. CoorsTek Cerbec ceramic bearing components outperform traditional steel bearings across every environment and application - 120% harder, 75% smoother, and 50% lighter than steel.


Ceramic Bearing Elements
Ceramic ESP Bushings

Extend pump & turbo life:

Wear, erosion, and corrosion destroy lesser materials. But CoorsTek engineered ceramics turn weak links into strengths. Replacing hardened alloys with ceramic ESP bushings, companies have experienced up to 100x less wear + 85% less breakage during the product lifetime. Let us show you how.
