SILICON NITRIDE (Si3N4)
ESK offers gas sealing rings of EKasin® silicon nitride for use in gas-lubricated mechanical seals. As contract services, ESK also performs microstructuring of the gas sealing rings and DLC coating for the start-up phase to customers' specifications:
Materials from ESK separate molten light metals, such as aluminum, magnesium or zinc, and other metals from surfaces and permit accurate process analysis.
ESK offers components of its own EKasin® silicon nitride material - with superior properties - as product solutions and tailored to customers' specifications, for:
In the development of specific materials, geometries and surfaces to individual customer specificatins, our extensive industrial facilities allow us to rapidly turn innovations into commercial products.
The microstructure of EKatherm® is responsible for the particularly high mechanical strength, thermal shock resistance and gas tightness, and it is therefore the ideal material for silicon nitride (SiN) tubes.
