Sulzer launches ready-fitted mechanical seals for various pumps
With the recent acquisition of mechanical seal specialist Tartek Oy, Sulzer has been able to further expand its technology portfolio and now provides in-house designed and manufactured seals for its process pumps.
The new Sulzer TB1, TB1F and TB2 ready-fitted mechanical seals for AHLSTAR A, N and W Range process pump types are designed for the seal chamber of the standard gland packing casing cover and for the standard shaft without extra shaft sleeve. The seals have been designed so that any pressure variations or drop-outs of the pumped liquid do not open the seal faces.
In order to ensure reliable operation, the ready-fitted seals are constructed as an organic part of certain centrifugal pump types without any extra components. They are mainly designed for industrial applications in the pulp and paper and general industries, but can also be used in the power generation and other markets.
The new mechanical seals are a result of thorough product development and are tested in real working conditions to ensure reliable solutions. Sulzer's worldwide sales and service network will introduce the new seals offering globally, both for new business and for the aftermarket.
