Split Seals for Hostile Processes
March 10, 2003- Georgetown, Maine: MECO's patented EX-PAC model seals are built to withstand some of industry's least hospitable environments. These include aggressive solvents and other chemicals, temperatures up to 500°F, thermal shaft growth, pressure fluctuations, high shaft runout and slight axial motion. Available with either elastomeric or mechanical drive mechanisms, the EX-PAC shares the capabilities of other MECO seals to provide exceptional service in abrasive applications while protecting shafts from being damaged. MECO considers a variety of materials and design variables in custom-engineering seals to suit individual applications. Fully-split models can be retrofit without removal of bearing or drive.
