MORE PICS of another Gold Coast City Council pump converted to cartridge mechanical seals. Gland Packing vs Cartridge Mechanical Seal An end face cartridge mechanical seal, also referred to as a mechanical face seal but typically simply as a mechanical seal, is a kind of seal made use of in rotating devices, such as pumps, mixers, blowers, and compressors. Earlier pump designs made use of mechanical packing (otherwise understood as Gland Packing) to seal the shaft.
GOLD COAST City Council chose Anthony Butler of Select Seals to convert all their pumps from using gland packing to now run using cartridge mechanical seals. This Warman Pump has now been running more efficiently and reliably for 4 years.
THIS GOLD COAST City Council pump was converted from gland packing to SEPCO XRS SPLIT SEAL Cartridge Mechanical Seals Are The Modern Alternative Cartridge seals are self-contained systems including a shaft sleeve, seal, and gland plate. The system is fitted onto the pump shaft as a constructed assembly, and no further fitting is needed.
ONE OF the most important things to remember about mechanical seals is that they are purchased by two different types of customer. While they both share a desire to ensure that the seal “works”, the two groups tend to have different priorities when selecting a seal.
How to Select Gland Packing for Different Applications THE SELECTION оf gland расkіng is a vеrу іmроrtаnt part оf thе mаrіnе engineer’s job. An іnсоrrесtlу ѕеlесtеd gland packing wоuld ѕооn fail іn ѕеrvісе аnd lеаd to leakages. Aѕ a numbеr оf расkіngѕ аrе аvаіlаblе, the fіеld оf ѕеlесtіоn is vеrу wide. Thеrе іѕ no single gland packing thаt саn hаndlе аll kіndѕ of fluіd оr which іѕ suitable fоr all types оf valves and аррlісаtіоnѕ. A vаlvе іѕ оnlу gооd іf its ѕеаlіng іѕ gооd аnd a lеаkіng ѕеаlіng аrrаngеmеnt аmоuntѕ tо a leaking vаlvе wіth аll іtѕ аѕѕосіаtеd fаultѕ.

Aramid Fibre– Properties and Applications Aramid fiber is an aromatic polyamide, much better known by trade names such as Kevlar Â® (DuPont) and Twaron® (Teijin Twaron). Many various grades are offered, with properties to match numerous applications, especially the aerospace and military markets. The fundamental bond strength of the molecules is exploited within Aramid fibers, due to the prevalent orientation of particles along the fiber axis.
SELECT SEALS’ repair facility is one-of-a kind. We have made a commitment to repair all mechanical seal styles regardless of manufacturer. We repair to like-new condition. If the seal is not repairable, we will quote a new Seal as a replacement or offer a range of exchange programs to suit the customer’s needs.
THIS SOUTHERN Cross Vertical Pump was recently converted from gland packing to a cartridge mechanical seal. Our Engineering Department specially designed and manufactured a custom cartridge mechanical seal for this specific application.
IN MECHANICAL seals main friction happens in the axial direction, between faces (seal rings) lapped to a high precision. Wear is compensated in axial direction by springs or bellows. Many mechanical seals do not wear shaft at all. Contact pressure and thus the friction force is kept to a minimum by a balanced design.
