Mechanical Seal

Mechanical Seal
A mechanical seal is an advanced sealing device used to prevent the leakage of fluids in rotating equipment, such as pumps and compressors. It consists of two main components: a rotating element attached to the shaft and a stationary element mounted in the equipment housing. The sealing faces of these elements come into contact to create a leak-tight seal.

Features and benefits:
  • Excellent sealing performance
  • Higher temperature resistance
  • Reduced maintenance

Q: Can mechanical seals handle dry running conditions?

Most mechanical seals require a film of fluid for lubrication and cooling. Dry running conditions can lead to rapid wear and failure of the seal faces. Specialized mechanical seals with dry-running capabilities may be available for specific applications.

Q: How do I prevent leakage in a mechanical seal?

Proper installation and regular maintenance are crucial in preventing leakage, ensuring a clean and properly aligned shaft and housing, using the correct seal components, and providing adequate.

Q: Can mechanical seals be repaired or reconditioned?

In some cases, mechanical seals can be repaired or reconditioned by replacing specific components. However, it depends on the extent of the damage and the design of the seal.
