Mechanical Seals

Together with EagleBurgmann (one of the world´s leading sealing technology providers) CONDIAS established the microcrystalline diamond coating DiamondFace® for mechanical seals as a series product.

Its basis was the research carried out at the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films (IST). IST´s successful development was awarded the technology transfer prize of the Industrie- und Handelskammer Braunschweig (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) in 2009.

  • Die Diamond coating of mechanical seals offers a number of advantages for the user.

    Mechanical seals by EagleBurgmann are used in pumps, agitators, compressors and other rotating machines as shaft seals for liquid and gaseous media.

    Diamond coating of mechanical seals considerably improves wear protection during dry-running, mixed friction and with abrasive media.

    Lifetime of mechanical seals is increased by a multiple for many applications. At the same time maintenance intervals are extended and life cycle costs significantly reduced.
