Galvanic series

  • A list of metals with those on the top of the list being attacked by those lower down in the list. The father apart on the list, the faster the attack.

  • Used between two static surfaces to provide a seal. Made from a variety of deformable materials.

Gland

  • The part that holds one half of the mechanical seal and attaches to the stuffing box.

Grease seal
