Gas Seals


Originally made for compressors, these seals are finding use in chemical plants and oil refineries as dual seals for fugitive emissions.

Their attraction is that they do not need the high pressure liquid barrier systems that are required for the dual seals normally used in these applications.

An inert gas is used instead and the chance of product contamination is eliminated.

Please see: hydrodynamic and hydrostatic seals.
