Tungsten Carbide Faces
It seems like you are referring to “Tungsten Carbide Faces.” Tungsten carbide is a highly durable and versatile material often used in various industrial applications due to its exceptional hardness and wear resistance.
Tungsten carbide faces, also known as sealing faces, are components commonly found in mechanical seals used in pumps, compressors, and other machinery. These mechanical seals are used to prevent leakage between rotating and stationary parts in machines that handle fluids or gases under pressure.
The faces of these mechanical seals are in direct contact with each other, creating a seal to prevent leakage. Tungsten carbide is an ideal material for these faces because of its hardness and resistance to wear, ensuring a long-lasting and reliable sealing solution even in demanding operating conditions.
The combination of tungsten carbide faces with other compatible materials, such as carbon or ceramic, allows for effective sealing while minimizing friction and wear. These properties make tungsten carbide faces crucial in maintaining the efficiency and reliability of various industrial equipment.
These are used in Oil Refineries, Petrochemical plants, Fertilizer Plants, and Drugs/Pharmaceutical Industries. Mechanical seal rings are developed to withstand high temperature, high pressure & highly corrosive chemical attack. DTEC manufactures Rings in various shapes like Plain Ring, DA type, T-shape, L-shape and in shapes as per customers requirement.
Tungsten Carbide Rings are generally made with Cobalt as binder material. Tungsten carbide is a dense, metal like substance, light gray with a bluish tinge, that decomposes, rather than melts at 2,600° C (4,700° F). It is prepared by heating powdered tungsten with carbon black in the presence of hydrogen at 1,400°–1,600° C (2,550°–2,900° F).
