How Graphite Helps Aerospace Engineers Push The Limits

How Graphite Helps Aerospace Engineers Push The Limits

The aerospace industry leaves no margin for error, demanding materials that can withstand high altitudes, high speeds, and extreme temperatures upwards of 1,000 degrees to meet the strict safety requirements of the industry.

In these oppressive environments, aerospace engineers require high performance materials that push the envelope for what is possible. The material that possesses the heat resistance and self lubricating characteristics that satisfy these stringent requirements is highly specialized Metcar® graphite.

15 Benefits of Metcar’s Materials

Metcar began developing carbon/graphite materials in 1970 and since then has developed hundreds of material grades suitable for use in industries ranging from aerospace to industrial.

Use Carbon/Graphite to Prevent Pump Failures from Running Dry

Use Carbon/Graphite to Prevent Pump Failures from Running Dry

When pumps run dry, it can lead to failures, downtime, and unwanted expenses.

Dry running occurs when a pump does not have enough fluid present. In submersible pumps, the fluid acts as a lubricant and coolant to dissipate heat generated by the pump through the media. However, when no fluid is present, there can be catastrophic failures within the pump.
