Types of Mechanical Seals

There are various types of mechanical seals, including contacting and non-contacting face seals. They both operate as a sealing system with a stationary component coupled with a matched axial rotating part.

Non-contacting, or lift-off, seals have unique grooves engineered into the seal rotor that create a pumping action that causes the rotor and seal nose to separate. This separation generates less friction and heat than contacting face seals and provides almost no leakage and a longer life for the seal.

Circumferential seals operate radially instead of axially between the shaft and seal. There are two types of circumferential seals: controlled gap and fractured-ring seals.
