Three Benefits of AESSEAL® Cartridge Mechanical Seals
At C&B Equipment, we partner with the best so that we can offer our customers the best, and AESSEAL® is one of the best mechanical seal and support system manufacturers in the world. They manufacture several seal types, including cartridge mechanical seals, component seals, and gas seals. This article will focus on their cartridge mechanical seals.
AESSEAL® cartridge mechanical seals are used in a wide variety of pumps and rotating equipment to prevent liquids and gases from escaping into the environment. Here are three benefits of AESSEAL® cartridge mechanical seals.
They Are Quick and Easy to Install
AESSEAL® cartridge mechanical seals are pre-assembled at the factory, pressure tested, and shipped as a unit. This seal configuration eliminates the requirement for seal setting measurements at installation.
Spring tension is another crucial factor in a successful seal installation. With component seals, you must set the tension manually by adjusting the length of the installed seal spring. With cartridge seals, the spring tension is preset, eliminating the time and potential errors of manual installation. A retaining device holds the rotating and stationary elements in correct alignment until the seal is mounted.
Having a mechanical seal pre-assembled also means that the seal faces are protected from damage during the installation process.
They Are Incredibly Versatile
AESSEAL® manufactures cartridge mechanical seals to suit a wide range of industrial applications, including the following.
- Pulp and Paper
- Chemical Process
- Oil and Refining
- Biodiesel Production
Cartridge seals are capable of handling the most demanding applications, including slurry applications and hazardous process fluid containment. AESSEAL®’s standard cartridge seal line includes the following.
- Single Mechanical Seals
- Double Mechanical Seals
- Metal Bellows Seals
- Mixer Seals for mixer, agitator, and reactor applications
- Split Mechanical Seals, which you can install and replace without disassembling the pump
For unusual applications, AESSEAL® also has a Standard Plus line that offers the same benefits as their standard seals while also meeting specific customer needs. This includes competitor replacement seals and seals designed for specific pumps and processes.
They Will Save You Money in the Long Run
Cartridge mechanical seals cost more than component seals. However, cartridge seals will save you money in the long run, thanks to lower maintenance costs. Potential savings come from reduced labor costs and less downtime when in-service seal replacement is required.
