  • Patent number: 11371500
    Abstract: Provided is a floating ring type mechanical seal in which a floating ring is pinched and held between a rotary ring provided in a rotary shaft and a stationary ring provided in a seal casing to be movable in an axial direction while being urged toward the rotary ring so that a relative rotation of the floating ring with respect to the stationary ring is inhibited. The rotary ring is made of a sintered compact of SiC or cemented carbide. A diamond film is formed on a sealing surface sliding on the floating ring in the rotary ring. A diamond film continuous to the diamond film of the sealing surface is formed on an outer peripheral surface of the rotary ring and a rear surface, which is a surface opposite to the sealing surface, in the rotary ring.
