Mechanical Seal
Mechanical Seal and accessories are growing. Environmental contamination has been a growing concern in the United States and Europe for decades, and in each of those decades the Environmental protection agency (EPA) has made the allowed leakage of environmental contaminants increasingly strict. Mechanical Seals have played a large part in reducing the emission once only slowed by braided packing which had to leak to function. Mechanical Seals have become a standard for Refineries, Chemical plants, waste water plants, Ships, and other critical leakage control industries, as well as applications applicable to the everyday consumer including automobile water pumps, and swimming pool pumps. They offer exceptional leakage control, and have increasingly replaced braided packing.

A Mechanical Seal has 3 primary design characteristics :Seal Faces :which are lapped flat to within 2 - 3 light bands. Making the seal face flat within millionths of an inch. Since both faces are lapped flat and then pressed together it effectively seals our any fluid (other than a very thin film) from leaking between them. An Energizer :It's done using a single spring, multiple springs, wave springs, metal bellows or even o-rings or internal pressure, but one of the above must be used to create a force pressing seal faces together preventing leakage from between the seal faces.

A Mechanical Seal has 3 primary design characteristics :Secondary Seals :While seal faces seal perpendicular to the shaft, secondary seals are necessary to seal parallel to the shaft. Those seals include rubber boots, common to industry standard type 1, 2, 21, 6 and 6A seals. O-Rings made of a variety of elastomers including Buna-N, Viton, Aflas, Kalrez, Chemrez, Amerirez, PTFE, SBR, Neoprene, and FEP encapsulated o-rings. Gaskets made or the same elastomers as above, along with Flexible Graphite, and Compressed nonasbestos materials. In the case of high temperature metal bellows seals Flexible Graphite wedges are used to seal the pump sleeve/shaft.
