Centrifugal compressors and other turbomachinery are critical to the operation of a process plant. Selecting a manufacturer with well proven state-of-the-art low friction dry gas seals who can offer full field maintenance support is very important.
In chemical, pharmaceutical, food and oil refinery process plants diverse systems are employed for agitating, blending and mixing products. The units require low maintenance operation and safety, both to protect the environment and the workplace.
Gas seal technology and gas seal operation depends on aerostatic and aerodynamic forces. Careful design keeps the two faces separated by a gas film. Aerodynamic forces are created by the presence of a 'pattern' on one of the faces
The bellows design overcomes many of the problems associated with pusher designs. The absence of a dynamic gasket eliminates the possibility of "hand-up", caused by build-up of deposits or gasket swell.
ISC2 standard cartridge seals are designed for general purpose applications on ANSI, ISO, JIS and API 682 process pumps serving chemical processing, petrochemical, biofuel, corn processing, pulp and paper, oil and refining, power, water and wastewater, mining and other industries.
