Classes Of Seal Technology

Emerging seal technologies are providing clear choices for sealing. Various plant services require the application of these new technologies for emissions control, safety, and reliability. Sealing systems are now available that are based on the preferred method of lubrication to be used. These classes of seals are as follows:

1. Contacting liquid lubricated seals:

• Normally, a single seal arrangement is cooled and lubricated by the liquid being sealed. This is the most cost-effective seal installation available to the industry.

• Dual seals are arranged to contain a pressurized or non-pressurized barrier or buffer liquid. Normally, this arrangement will be used on applications where the liquid being sealed is not a good lubricating fluid for a seal and for emissions containment. These arrangements require a lubrication system for the circulation of barrier or buffer liquids.
