Aesseal Agcd Double Glandless Cartridge Mechanical Seals to Suit the Sulzer Ahlstarup Pump Range Seal
Double Glandless Cartridge Seal to suit the Sulzer AhlstarUP
The AGCD and AGCS seals are designed to fit the full six bearing frame range of the AhlstarUP pump models. AESSEAL is believed to be the only seal manufacturer to offer a fully integrated and glandless cartridge mechanical seal range for these pumps, which were launched by Sulzer in 2006 with a view to superseding the APP and APT ranges.
- Multi spring energized
- True cartridge
- +/-2mm (0.080")axial movement
- Even face loading for longer life
- Easy to retrofit without any equipment modification
- Allows impeller movement without compromising seal performance
- Ensures circulation of barrier fluid to prevent overheating at seal faces
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.
