Product Announcement from Hi-Tech Seals, Inc.

Mechanical Seal-Image

Mechanical Seals are meant to replace rope and braided packing. Mechanical Seals are used on rotating shafts (pump, compressors, etc). The product creates a seal when the two flat seal faces are pushed together by axial force from the closing mechanism and by product pressure in the seal chamber. When the seal is in operation, the pumped product lubricates the two seal faces.
