The demands on materials in modern machine construction are constantly rising. The following examples show how Sulzer meets this challenge and how the clients benefit from high-tech materials.
Improved pump materials
Pumping corrosive fluids containing abrasive solids is a challenge. Sulzer can adapt pumps to such requirements by making the ideal choice of hydraulics and seals and by improving the materials used to produce the pump.
Microstructured coatings with great potentialMicrostructured coatings are needed for new applications and improved performance. Sulzer develops suspension spray technologies that produce microstructured coatings with cost-effective thermal spray processes. This new technology has great potential for demanding applications like thermal-barrier coatings or solid-oxide fuel cells.
Composite materials for better separation
Sulzer improves the performance of extraction columns by using coalescers made of composite materials, and thereby extends the range of application for these columns. Customer projects confirm the process and cost advantages of the DC coalescer™.
