The common parlance, water vapour is usually understood to mean the visible vapour clouds of partially already condensing water vapour (wet vapour), as it also occurs as mist or in clouds. For cost reasons, a single mechanical seal is often used for steam. This prevents the hot steam from escaping into the atmosphere. In the case of steam, the selection of the mechanical seal, but even more so the materials, plays an important role. We have built a single-axis mechanical seal for this purpose, with maximum cooling.
The selection of the right materials for the seal faces and the elastomers plays an important role here. Due to our own production in Strausberg, we can offer a variety of solutions.
