What is a Mechanical Seal and What Goes Into the Design?

The primary purpose of a mechanical seal is to separate air from fluids in rotating applications. Mechanical seals consist of a rotating component, a rotor or mating ring, and a stationary component often called the seal.

The core design consideration is a function of the system pressure and the surface velocity of the rotating component. Our engineers consider the limited physical space constraints, or envelope, the seal must be able to fit into. The media the seal will be exposed to is an issue of utmost concern to the seal’s design. Learn more: https://technetics.com/technetics-pro...
