Movements in a process result in signs of wear. These manifest themselves in the form of abrasion. When it comes to extending maintenance intervals, it is helpful to examine the tribological properties of the rubbing pairs. This is where it is important to use specific materials that make suitable rubbing pairs. These are softer than the pairing friction parts, but hard enough not to destroy one another when they first come into contact. Our materials are suitable for these types of sliding applications.
If additional variables such as very high temperatures play a role along with the friction operation, it is essential to use special materials that are carefully designed to meet this challenge.
Overview of all applications
Slide rings and mating rings are the two main components of a slide-ring seal. The slide ring and mating ring are in constant contact. However, they do not touch one another but slide over each other.
If metallic materials are used for guides or rails, wear due to friction is unavoidable. Slide rails made of DOTHERM materials offer the benefits of excellent friction and sliding properties, high wear resistance and thermal stability.
