Chemineer® Announces New ChemSeal(TM) Specifically Designed for Agitator Service
Dayton, Ohio - Chemineer, Inc. announces the launch of the new ChemSeal(TM) - the newest line of mechanical seals designed specifically for agitator service. ChemSeal is a true agitator seal featuring high runout, reverse rotation and reverse pressure capability.
The ChemSeal line features both single and double cartridge configurations designed for easy installation and maintenance. The ChemSeal cartridge seals can be readily removed from the agitator as a complete assembly and quickly repaired on the workbench before re-installation, saving maintenance time and effort. Chemineer's "swing-out" agitator seal change design contributes to the ease and the speed of seal replacement, helping to reduce maintenance costs.
ChemSeals are available in a variety of materials to meet critical temperature and pressure ratings, satisfying a broad range of mixing/agitation applications. The ChemSeal can be easily retrofitted to existing Chemineer® GT, Model 20, and MR agitators to provide improved sealing capability on existing applications.
Optional throttle bushing or debris well designs are available to prevent seal and product contamination. Dry and liquid lubrication options are also available to suit specific application requirements.
ChemSeal design features include:
o Double balanced inboard faces for optimal performance
