To be able to cope with sand, water and gases found in crude oil, pumping systems for mineral oil require heavy duty pumps with reliable engineered mechanical seals that feature durable sliding faces with good emergency running characteristics. Often it is necessary to seal pressures in excess of 100 bar and sliding velocities of over 60 m/s. The ideal seal face combination for such conditions have proven to be high-strength carbons running against silicon carbide.
