In the sealing of compressors, gas-lubricated mechanical seals have proved to be the most cost-effective solution. For this application, ESK offers gas sealing rings of EKasic® silicon carbide or EKasin® silicon nitride.
Mechanical seals serve for sealing rotating shafts with respect to, e.g., housings. Product solutions made of ESK's own EKasic® silicon carbide are ideal for applications subject to extreme conditions, such as contaminated, abrasive and extremely corrosive materials.
Process-fluid-lubricated sliding bearings of EKasic® silicon carbide are superior to conventional oil-lubricated sliding bearings in many different ways.
