Flowserve Signs Collaborative Agreement with Advanced Diamond Technologies

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

Flowserve and ADT, a spinoff company from the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, have worked together since the 1980s to develop, refine and perfect diamond coating for mechanical seal faces.
