Corrosion-resistant mechanical seals, bearings and valves for power engineering

Under corrosive operating conditions in power engineering, the service life of conventional DiaCer® materials (diamond-coated ceramics) is too short due to the formation of stress cracks. Based on the existing systems, a new material system consisting of a novel, graded diamond-SiC composite material and an extremely dense CVD diamond layer is to be developed, which has a lower friction value and thus achieves higher corrosion resistance in power generation.
