MECHANICAL SEAL INSTALLATION ANIMATION VIDEO -
Proper installation of a mechanical seal is an important procedure in industries. For performing maintenance, the seal may have to be dismantled and reinstalled. The animation video describes a typical dismantling procedure of a mechanical seal.
There are primarily 2 types of Seals used to prevent leakage of fluids.
- Static Seal
- Dynamic Seal
Static Seals - They are used when there is no movement at the juncture to be sealed (o-rings and gasket).
Dynamic Seals - These seals are used when there is relative movement between surfaces to be sealed.
The more common type of dynamic seal is the compression packing. They are easy to install and have low initial cost, but require more maintenance. They permit greater amount of leakage and may not comply with emission standards.
Mechanical Seals can greatly reduce product leakage and require lesser maintenance. However greater skill is required in mechanical seal installation and maintenance.
A typical dismantling procedure in Mechanical Seal Installation is described in the animation video:
