Split Shaft Seals Withstand Abrasive, Dry Processes
MECO custom shaft seals are built to withstand industry’s most abrasive products, including sugar, starch, salt, porcelain, gypsum, talc, silica-–even industrial diamonds, according to the company. These patented seal designs are said to accommodate 6mm and more of shaft run-out and protect shafts from product damage on dry-running powder and bulk solids processing and handling equipment. Many MECO seals use a self-compensating driving elastomer as the seal’s only interface with the shaft. This allows the seal to accommodate significant shaft misalignment and shock loads, as well as thermal shaft growth in high-temperature process machinery. Fully split models can be retrofitted easily without removal of bearing or drive on such rotating equipment as conveyors, cookers, dryers and blenders. Sanitary seals are available.
