Shaft Seal System Floats on Water
Building on its series of shaft seals, Inpro/Seal offers its Water Mizer Shaft Seal. With the addition of the Water Mizer, Inpro/Seal now offers a number of shaft-sealing systems for use in applications where wet or dry particulates, powders and slurries are handled, processed, packaged and stored.
The Water Mizer has all of the features of the Air Mizer with one main difference: water is used to attain the seal. Its design includes a ½-inch waterline connection that attaches to a regulator to control the water pressure. A drain is located on the backside.
The shaft “floats” on a water barrier directly on the shaft, which provides unlimited axial movement without placing any stress or strain on the product. Without any moving parts, the seal attains zero contact, zero wear and zero frictional drag.
Typical applications include screw conveyors, mixers, blenders, rotary valves, feeders, gates, clinker grinders, bucket elevators, diverters, scales, bagging machines, dust collectors, discharges, classifiers, screens, extruders, separators, shredders, sifters, gate valves, metal detectors, pulverizers, crushers, coolers, aerators, mixers, agitators, transfer pumps, fillers and similar wet and dry powder and slurry processing equipment.
