In the sealing of compressors, gas-lubricated mechanical seals have become established as the most cost-effective solutions. ESK offers EKasic® silicon carbide or EKasin® silicon nitride gas-sealing rings for these applications.
Mechanical seals serve for sealing rotating shafts with respect to, e.g., housings. Production solutiosn from ESK's own EKasic® silicon carbide are ideal for applications in aggressive environments, such as contaminated abrasive fluids and extremely corrosive fluids.
Process fluid-lubricated sliding bearings from ESK permit simple design solutions for machines or plants, and offer outstanding material properties.
