Why You Should Match Your Seal to Your Application

Numerous types of seal technology can be used in pumps and other rotating equipment. From simple seals to very complex mechanical seal designs, there are various options to understand and consider for your pump system. One factor that you must review is your processing application. The types of fluids or materials you are moving, flow […]

Don’t Settle for Substandard Mechanical Seals

Mechanical seals are a vital component of rotating equipment like pumps, agitators, compressors, and mixers. When moving parts are involved in fluid processing, a proper mechanical seal will prevent leakage. Improperly sealed machines can also allow outside elements to seep in, potentially damaging equipment or compromising process fluids. Precise Fit and Function Rotating equipment features […]

Extend Pump Life with These Mechanical Sealing Options

Mechanical seals prevent leaks and the introduction of contaminants between a pump’s rotating shaft and the pump casing. There are many different styles of mechanical seals. They come in all sorts of sizes and configurations to work with different pumps and fluid media. Some are rather simple in design, while others are much more complex. […]

What Seal is Best for Cryogenic Temperatures?

Cryogenics involves the study of how matter behaves at extremely low temperatures. In some cases, these temperatures might approach absolute zero as liquefied gasses, refrigerants, coolants, low-temperature hydrocarbons and other cryogenic liquids are used to create very cold environments with stable chemical reactions.   The Challenges of Cryogenic Sealing One of the biggest challenges in […]

An Unconventional Balancing Method for Your Mechanical Seals

Mechanical seals are very important in pumps. There are various types of mechanical seals that perform specific functions within a pump. Keeping these seals in good working order is crucial for pump efficiency and equipment longevity. Maintaining proper seal balance is one of the key features of any good maintenance program.   What is Mechanical […]
