ABOUT THE COMPANY
Flex-A-Seal is known throughout the world as a leading manufacturer of mechanical seals and sealing accessories. At Cortech Engineering, we are proud to be a sales representative for the Flex-A-Seal brand. Over the years, we’ve helped many of our clients get the most out of their equipment in a variety of industrial, municipal and commercial applications, which is why we are excited to work closely with Flex-A-Seal.
Flex-A-Seal, Inc. started in Ormond Beach, Florida primarily as a welded metal bellows seal manufacturer dealing with a limited distributor base in the United States. After 30 years, Flex-A-Seal has manufacturing facilities worldwide in over 30 countries.
Since 1983, Flex-A-Seal, Inc. has been a global corporation with a comprehensive catalog of engineered sealing products for all sealing requirements. They offer a full line of replacement mechanical seals for a full array of compressors, mixers, pumps and rotating equipment including:
Flex-A-Seal serves industries such as pulp & paper, wastewater, pharmaceutical, mining, marine, chemical, power and food.
Flex-A-Seal is on a mission to supply customers with products of the highest quality. The core commitment at Flex-A-Seal, Inc. is to be at the forefront of our industry’s technological advances. Their facilities contain state of the art bellows welding capabilities, CNC machining centers, quality control standards, and extensive inventory systems.
Save resources with the FAS Single (ESF) and Dual Flow (EDF) flowmeters, the ideal partners for applications requiring controlled and uninterrupted seal water flow for cooling and lubrication. The Flex-A-Seal ESF and EDF models are compatible with all seal styles.
Seal Support System: ANSI LITE
Liquid-lubricated dual mechanical seals require an external source of clean, cool lubricating fluid. The ANSI LITE barrier fluid reservoir system creates this enhanced sealing environment, enabling longer operational life for dual seals. The closed-loop system allows for monitoring of the inboard seal, noting changes in the ANSI LITE barrier fluid reservoir’s levels.
This patented design is a proven problem-solving solution which addresses two common problems, of radial shaft movement and the need to reduce excessive water flush consumption commonly found in process plants around the world. This design requires no modification to the existing rotating equipment.
The Flex-A-Flo device is designed to regulate flow and cut back on water consumption in double seal applications. The Flex-A-Flo monitors the temperature of the seal chamber while utilizing a thermally actuated valve that automatically removes hot barrier fluid liquid and keeps the seal running in its optimal environment. By doing this, the Flex-A-Flo maximizes water conservation in double seal applications where water is the barrier fluid and enters between the inboard seal and the outboard seal, and typically discharges to a drain.
