Material innovation can lead to market success of a product. That’s why Sulzer’s material specialists investigate and check materials, coatings, and material treatments to improve our products and production processes. Sulzer has broad experience in many different manufacturing processes and uses a wide variety of them. Our engineers analyze, assess and test thoroughly all new materials and production methods before they are used in full-scale production and different areas. Read about the advantages of hot isostatic pressing (HIPing) of casted impellers used in water-injection subsea pumps and not easy to exchange. To increase corrosion resistance, Sulzer implemented a carbon-fiber-composite material for separation columns. Even for repairs, Sulzer makes use of the know-how of material specialists to improve the longevity of refurbished turbines. Special plastic materials and processes are used to produce dental syringes which are filled with biocompatible bone material.
