Today we will be talking about the different types of mechanical seal, and what parts they encompass. We will explore the mechanical seal part, and the importance of each aspect in terms of what they do and why they’re necessary. Categories like the stationary assembly, rotating assembly and sealing surface are all important to know so that you can make sure you’re picking the right seal for your application.
Types of Mechanical Seals
There are many different types of mechanical seals, each designed for specific applications and operating conditions. The most common types of seals are:
-Cartridge seals: These seals are pre-assembled and ready to install, making them ideal for use in repair or replacement situations.
-Split seals: Split seals are designed to be easily installed and removed, making them ideal for maintenance or repair situations.
-Canned pump seals: Canned pump seals are a type of cartridge seal that is specifically designed for use with canned pumps.
-Dry running seals: Dry running seals are designed for use in applications where the seal faces will not be lubricated by the fluid being sealed.
-Externally pressurized seals: Externally pressurized seals are designed for use in high-pressure applications where the seal faces need to be protected from the static pressure of the fluid being sealed.
