With only a few main components, the PSS seal can be quickly and easily installed minimizing downtime.
Due to the carbon stator being bored larger than the shaft dieameter, the PSS mechanical seal "floats" around the shaft. This compensates for any misalignment or vibration issues.
Why PSS ?
Flexible Design: In addition to carrying standard sizing, a major advantage of the PSS Shaft Seal is its ability to be customized to adapt to an existing installation or design. Because of the ability to design the seal to fit most existing systems, engineers are unconstrained by seal size requirements. The time frame for custom seals is usually very low, 3 to 4 weeks.
Reliable & Durable: Due to its simple design the PSS Shaft Seal is durable and reliable, with a typical life span of 25,000 running hours. Under clean water conditions the seal can exceed 100,000+ running hours. The unique "float design" & flexibility of the PSS Shaft Seal allows for substantial axial movement of the shaft while still operating correctly.
Low maintenance & Ease of Installation: Minimal maintenance is required under normal working conditions with replacement parts readily available. Unlike other sealing systems, the seal does not wear the shaft or surrounding materials during operation which results in longer maintenance intervals.
