Temperature & Mechanical Seals

Of all the various factors that can affect the performance and life expectancy of a mechanical seal (and there are many), the operating temperature is one of the most critical, and is a vital factor to consider. This is true for more than simply the selection of seal type and materials however; it is also […]


Mechanical Seal Materials of Construction

Mechanical seals consist of multiple components critical to successfully preventing leakage of the pumped process fluid. Material selection of seal faces, secondary sealing members, and metal components all factor in to how long a mechanical seal will properly operate. The components making up the mechanical seal differ based on the seal type. Process fluid chemical […]
