How do Mechanical Seals Work?
Mechanical seals are usually made of moving rings, stationary rings, compression elements and sealing elements. These parts are tightly bonded to form a sealing surface to avoid leakage. The liquid in the sealed chamber causes the end face to press against the end face of the stationary ring, and the mechanical seal occurs on the end faces of the two rings and the adhesion is to maintain the compression of the component pressure. The pump can not only work in the state, but also adhere to the end of the paste to ensure that the sealing medium does not leak, and avoid impurities into the sealed end. The sealing element acts as a gap between the sealing ring and the shaft, the action of the static ring and the gap of the gland, and the oscillation of the pump with the elastic element. When running with other components of the pump, the condition of the mechanical seal is closely linked with the external conditions. Only if the parts, auxiliary sealing equipment and technical requirements are ensured that the mechanical seal works well.
