Flowserve Corp. has signed an agreement with Advanced Diamond Technologies, Inc. (ADT) to become the exclusive developer and supplier of diamond-coated hard faces for ADT’s mechanical seals. When applied to Flowserve base materials, the ultrananocrystalline-structured diamond (UNCD) coating developed by ADT produces an extremely hard surface with significantly improved friction and wear characteristics, according to Flowserve. This is useful in services requiring protection from slurry, dry running conditions and resistance to chemical corrosion.
