Understanding when to use—or not use—mechanical seals is important for protecting the entire pumping system.

While mechanical seals are critical to applications in which the pumped medium is considered toxic, corrosive or explosive, if the medium is outside the parameters of most hazardous categories, there are more options. Learn when to choose mechanical seals, or when other options are possible, such as single- or double-seal technologies that can be adapted to more reliable bearing sealing systems. Also learn more about the details of bearing systems and using braided packing. There is a wide variety of packing styles and configurations, and not all packing is the same.
