Silicon Carbide Seal


    Silicon Carbide - Is a bluish-black material created by fusing silica and coke. It is in the same family as Ceramic (due to the Silica), but has much better lubrication qualities and is harder. The most common silicon carbide used in a mechanical seal is reaction-bonded silicon carbide. In Chemical applications however, Alpha Sintered Silicon Carbide may be recommended. Alpha Sintered Silicon carbide does however sacrifice the Pressure Velocity ratios due to the lack of un-reacted free carbon.

    Either grade of SIC can usually be re-lapped and polished to be reused.
