Product Description
The Type 28SC is an extremely compact dry running noncontacting gas seal designed for secondary containment.
Secondary containment seals perform in response to
primary seal leakage or failure and represent a less
complex alternative to dual un-pressurized (tandem) seals
using a Plan 52 lubrication system.
The 28SC is a dry running, non-contacting secondary
containment seal occupying an outboard position in a
cartridge arrangement. Normal leakage from the primary
seal is small and measured in ppm. The use of a
containment seal gland and buffer gas injection moves
vaporous leakage to a flare system. The 28SC is typically
applied with a Plan 72 secondary seal support system.
When called upon to seal gross primary seal leakage,
28SC closes down to run as a contacting seal directing
leakage to flare system or drain.

Performance Capabilities

Temperature: -20°F to 500°F/-29°C to 260°C

Pressure:
Up to 44 psi(g)/3 bar(g) (Gas Operation)
Up to 580 psi(g)/40 bar(g) (Liquid Operation)

Speed: Up to 5000 fpm/25 m/s

*Consult John Crane Engineering for the possibilities of lower
speeds and for higher gas pressures.

Design Features
Non-contacting operation
Bi-directional
■ Compact short axial length
■ Long life – near zero wear
■ High pressure liquid containment capability
■ Simplified dual containment using Plan 72
■ Patented bi-directional groove pattern on mating ring
pumps a small amount of inert buffer gas from the outside
diameter towards the ungrooved portion of the mating ring.
This compressed gas cushion separates the primary seal
face and mating ring and creates a non-contacting seal
■ Dry-running technology ends need for seal face lubrication
halting frequent maintenance and concern with product
contamination of a lubricating liquid
■ The unbalanced technology reduces emissions to
minimum
■ No balance step in shaft, extremely short axial length
■ Contains process liquid in the event of primary seal failure
and handles up to 580 psi(g)/40 bar(g) in contacting mode
■ Can operate in a partial vacuum without face and mating
ring contact. Seal can be used in a totally enclosed
containment installation
■ Large under and over compression allowance for flexible
installation
