What is the role of mechanical seal?
- May 29, 2018 -

    The mechanical seal refers to a device for preventing fluid leakage that is constituted by at least one pair of end surfaces perpendicular to the rotation axis, which is maintained under the influence of the fluid pressure and the compensation mechanism elastic force (or magnetic force) and the auxiliary seal, and that is coupled with relative sliding. The elastic loading mechanism and the auxiliary seal are mechanical seals of the metallic tube we call the metal bellows seal. In light-duty seals, rubber bellows are also used as an auxiliary seal. The rubber bellows have limited elasticity and generally need to be supplemented with springs to satisfy the loading spring force. "Mechanical seals" are often simply referred to as "machine seals."
