The idea behind the mechanical seal radially divided split is to improve the service and installation of a seal, especially where large-scale equipment is not easy to disassemble. Horizontal split seals shall improve the time needed for a change of a seal. Due to its split casing, the result is an easy installation. This is already factible with regular pumps, due to the fact that no disassembly of the pump is necessary.
Main application field of split mechanical cartridge seals are large-scale machinery, such as:
We manufacture split mechanical seals up to a diameter of 350 mm as standard but sizes above 550 mm are possible to manufacture but no as standard. Main advantages of the STB split mechanical seals are long life time, easy installation and cost effective.
