In Poorly Lubricated Conditions, Try this Diamond Seal... Over 50% of pump lifecycle costs result from energy and maintenance; and applying the low-wear and low-friction attributes of diamond to mechanical seals can yield significant energy savings for fluid pumps. Ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD) seals provide the benefits of diamond at expenses comparable to silicon-carbide (SiC) face seals. In tests...
