Diaphragm seal welded with LABtec technology

To realise special diaphragm surfaces for customers, LABOM also develops new manufacturing processes, such as the patented fibre laser technology LABtec. The advantage of "LABtec" is a full-surface diaphragm contact with special material without mix melting or additional soldering connections. This results in a high temperature resistance and stability of material properties (against corrosion, acids, etc.) of the special materials.

The full-surface welded diaphragm garanties high temperature and vacuum tightness of the diaphragm seal. The advantage of the fibre laser technology LABtec is that it doesn´t change the material properties of special materials such as Titanium, Tantallum, Monel or Hastelloy. These materials are especially resistant to pure acids or strongly oxidising and chloride-rich solutions and suspensions or even to strong alkalis and most salt solutions (seawater). Additionally the technology results in a high temperature resistance of the diaphragm seals.
