Solving Electro-chemical corrosion in high-speed equipment

Pharmaceutical industry case study

Blister damages to Carbon sealing surfaces

Water for injection (WFI) is commonly used in the pharmaceutical process industry, however the very low conductivity of the media can cause electro-chemical corrosion of the Silicon Carbide when used in centrifugal pumps and other high-speed equipment. As a result, end-users were suffering stochastic life time from the mechanical seals applied.

From extensive testing in the Roplan test lab with different Silicon Carbide qualities in WFI, a best performing Silicon Carbide quality could be verified. Stochastic life-time has now been reduced to a marginal problem.
