At Gaddis Engineered Materials, we specialize in providing you with custom engineered solutions that meet or exceed the requirements of your applications. Typical products include mechanical seal parts, bearings, bushings, precision nozzles, pump & meter components, valve seats and machined graphite. If you have a need for a part custom machined from carbon-graphite, alumina ceramic, silicon carbide, tungsten carbide or other technical ceramics, Gaddis is your source!
Our products are used primarily in rotating applications such as pumps, compressors, industrial mixers and mechanical seals. You will also find Gaddis materials and components in a broad range of other applications, such as Diamond Tooling Processes, Glass & Fiberglass Manufacturing, and Specialty Textile Applications. Anywhere there is a requirement for any technical ceramic material for mechanical or thermal service, we can meet the need!
We pride ourselves in offering quality, service and value, all of which are critical in today's competitive market. We provide personal attention to each of our customers. Our goal is to understand your needs and anticipate your requirements in advance. Many of our customers look at Gaddis Engineered Materials as a resource and extension of their own businesses.
Seal rings, O-ring grooved seats, segmented seal rings and bushings used in mechanical and circumferential seals. Our standard materials include a variety of carbon, ceramic, silicon and tungsten carbide materials.
Gaddis manufactures bearings and bushings for a variety of applications where chemical oxidation, high temperature, abrasive wear and/or poor lubrication may be of concern. We can also supply carbon bearing assemblies, where the bearing insert is shrink fitted into a metal retainer.
Carbon seal rings and bearing guides are used in rotary union assemblies. Typical applications include the transfer of steam or hot oil from a stationary device into a piece of rotating equipment. These devices are most often found in paper mills, chemical and textile plants. We offer general-purpose materials as well as premium grades for higher pressures and temperatures.
Precision nozzles used in centrifuges and spray dryers. Abrasion resistance and chemical oxidation is not a concern with the materials offered by Gaddis for these applications.
Continuous casting dies used in the metal extrusion industry, graphite applicator rolls used for the manufacture of fiber glass and graphite fixture used in a variety of glass manufacturing and diamond tooling processes are just a few of the specialty graphite products manufactured by Gaddis. We offer high performance materials for the most difficult applications.
Products include vanes, rotors, end plates, bearings, and other components used in fluid handling, rotary pumps and metering devices. Many of these components are custom machined for precision applications with tight tolerances.
Valves operating in high temperatures and chemically corrosive environments often use carbon-graphite inserts shrink fitted into metal retainers. Gaddis can manufacture the insert as well as the complete assembly.
Many seal and/or pump repair facilities and carbon machine shops stock impregnated carbon-graphite blanks for their same day/next day emergency requirements. Gaddis offers GEM2009, an excellent general-purpose seal and bearing grade for this need. The base material is isostatically molded, which enables Gaddis to offer larger diameters and longer lengths without sacrificing mechanical properties. We can also provide metal filled materials such as Antimony or Babbitt impregnated carbon-graphites.
