FINGER SPRING F012
|Several spring designs are used to keep the mechanical seal faces together when there is little to no pressure in the pump stuffing box.|
Single coil and multiple coil springs are the most popular, but finger springs can often be used if axial space is a problem. Wave springs are another alternative if axial space is at a premium.

This is a stationary design because the spring loaded face does not rotate with the shaft
