Improved Mechanical Seals
A new line of dry-running mechanical seals for mixers, agitators, and reactors that meets the ASME-BPE 2009 standards for cleanability is being introduced by Sharpe Mixers, Inc. (Seattle, WA). The Sharpe RD Dry-Running Mechanical Seals were developed for sanitary applications where product contamination from barrier fluids is unacceptable. The seals feature a proprietary carbon blend that eliminates the typical face squeal, and are capable of handling a 0.15” total run-out. In addition, the seals feature sloped internal surfaces to facilitate drainage and enhance cleanability, including the debris well flush ports.
