Successful Railroad Signaling Relies on Critical Graphite Electrical Components

Our nation’s railroad infrastructure is comprised of a complex network of tracks, crossings, bridges, tunnels, and stations. This entire system must be diligently monitored around the clock to optimize the flow of rail traffic and prevent serious accidents that can cause catastrophic consequences.

Medical Ultrasonic Imaging: Using Carbon Graphite Beyond Mechanical Applications

Medical Ultrasonic Imaging: Using Carbon Graphite Beyond Mechanical Applications

Carbon graphite’s mechanical properties are unparalleled by any other commercially available material. Its ability to self-lubricate, combined with its incredible oxidation resistance and mechanical strength has undoubtedly made it one of the most versatile engineered materials on the market.

Jet Fuel Pumps and Meters: Carbon Graphite Bearings Offer Huge Savings

Jet Fuel Pumps and Meters: Carbon Graphite Bearings Offer Huge Savings

Over 20 billion gallons of jet fuel and aviation gasoline fuel are consumed annually by American civil aircraft alone, according to a recent FAA Aerospace Forecast.¹

This number is expected to climb to just under 30 billion gallons by 2037. These volumes are astounding considering only a relatively small segment of the worldwide aerospace market is included in the forecast.

The Science of Self-Lubrication in Industrial Applications

The Science of Self-Lubrication in Industrial Applications

Proper lubrication of a mechanical system can make or break a design. Any application in which rubbing occurs requires lubrication to prevent excessive wear, heat buildup, seizing, and—in worst case scenarios—complete system failure. Lubrication concerns range from
