CARBONTEC– carbon vanes are made in a range of carbon materials (carbon/graphite, metal impregnated carbon/graphite and resin bonded graphite) to meet many different application requirements.

All CARBONTEC vanes are made from Morgan Industrial Carbon grades retain the basic properties, which make carbon unique as an engineering material, and particularly suited for vanes that may operate in conditions beyond the limits of other materials.

Carbon vanes are self-lubricating, and therefore ideal for pumps handling liquids whose lubricating properties are poor such as petrol. They can also operate unlubricated in compressors to deliver air or gas uncontaminated by lubricating oil or grease, in which case the carbon gives a fine polish to the cylinder wall which reduced the wear rate of the vane after bedding in to almost negligible proportions.
