Environmental benefits from pump coating

Balzers says its Balinit C coating offers significant environmental benefits for hydraulic pumps and compressors, without compromising performance characteristics.

The coating protects precision components, reducing the coefficient of friction to prevent premature wear or seizure, and so ensuring reliable high performance.

The amorphous carbon coating is applied in a PVD process at around 200 degrees C. Providing excellent load bearing capabilities, PVD coatings have thicknesses of only a few microns and can be applied as the last stage in the manufacture of pumps and compressors.
