Unbalanced mechanical seal
UNBALANCED MECHANICAL SEAL U002
- Unbalanced seals are not hydraulically balanced to lower the generation of heat at the seal faces. The seal faces see all of the system pressure.
- This is the type of mechanical seal supplied “as standard” by the pump companies.
- Most of these un-balanced seals will frett and damage the shaft or sleeve.
