Products Mechanical seal
This mass-produced tight tolerance seal is made of silicon carbide, and used to seal rotating shafts handling corrosive media.

It has excellent wear resistance, it is resistant to erosion and corrosion by most acids and alkaline solutions, it has good anti-friction properties, and thermal shock resistance. High thermal conductivity is a further advantage.
