Ceradyne, Inc. recently announced that its ceramics operation, ESK Ceramics, received a five-year contract for its EKasic® silicon carbide industrial pump seal faces.

Ceradyne, Inc. recently announced that its ceramics operation, ESK Ceramics in Kempten, Germany, received a five-year contract for its EKasic® silicon carbide industrial pump seal faces for an estimated minimum amount of € 35 million ($50 million). ESK Ceramics has developed a product line of these pump seal faces for a wide variety of stringent applications requiring high levels of material properties and precision mechanical dimensions. ESK has been working on this program for more than 20 years.

“This multi-year order will support Ceradyne’s strategy of developing commercial and industrial advanced technical ceramic products that are not dependent on its military product offering,” said Thomas Juengling, president of ESK Ceramics. “The Kempten operation is in the process of significantly expanding its EKasic silicon carbide product line, and this order gives us the confidence that our recent capital expenditure commitment will be justified.”

“We feel that ESK’s customer orientation and focus on quality and delivery are responsible for this recent ‘win’ from a long-time trusted ESK Ceramics customer,” said Barbara Schaaf, ESK vice president of sales.
