Bi-Metal FIDC Flow Induced Dual Cartridge Industrial Pump Seal AESSEAL Mechanical Seals
Bi-Metal FIDC - Flow Induced Dual Cartridge
The FIDC seal is the next generation of high performance sealing solutions offering increased barrier fluid flow for improved reliability.
AESSEAL has designed an innovative "bi-metal" exotic alloy seal. Alloy 20, Alloy 276, Alloy 400 and Titanium grade 2 are inventoried in popular modular wetted component sizes. Any additional commercially available special alloys are made to order. These special alloy parts are fitted to the standard Stainless Steel components. The use of a neutralizing barrier fluid protects the secondary Stainless Steel parts that are not exposed to the process fluid during normal operation.
Availability and flexibility of design meets the special demands of the corrosive fluid containment market. Variations to the seal specification can be accomplished by selecting from many different options. Seal faces are offered in any combination of Silicon Carbide, Tungsten Carbide and Carbon, both inboard and outboard.
Features and Benefits
- Flow inducer with a 'heat removal' flow path - helps with the removal of heat from the seal, optimizing face cooling
- Self-aligning seal faces - ensure faces remain square to shaft
- Hydraulically pressure balanced seal faces - ensures excellent sealing
- Modular design - easily adapted for different applications
- Cartridge construction - simple to install
Advantages of Double Mechanical Seals
A double or dual mechanical seal consists of two independent seals mounted within a seal chamber outside the pump, which is flushed with an independent supply. This makes them ideal for sealing hazardous liquids, liquids with abrasives or liquids that are corrosive, as the seal faces only see clean lubrication greatly increasing mechanical seal life.
AESSEAL double mechanical seals have independent seal-face designs, to enhance safe containment of process fluid in the event of damage to any individual sealing element.
