  • Castings: ASTM A48 class 40 gray cast iron or equivalent for pressure-retaining parts. Alternate casing material is ductile iron grade 60-40-18 per ASTM A395 and ASME SA 395 including a Charpy V-notch test at -4°F(-20°C) and a material certificate type 3.1 per EN 10204. Material is similar to European standard EN 1563, material designation EN-GJS-400-18.
  • Flanges: Suction and discharge flanges comply with ANSI B16.1.
  • Rotors: AISI 1141 low carbon steel.
  • Bearings: Rolling elements and rings are AISI 52100 medium carbon alloy steel.
  • Static Seals: HNBR O-rings. Viton® also available.
  • Dynamic Seals: Carbon filled teflon.
  • Shaft Seal: Spring-loaded stationary carbon end face rides in a stainless steel carrier against a rotating nonmagnetic cast iron alloy (Ni-resist) floating seat. The assembly is fully balanced and capable of sealing high pressure, but is vented to low pressure to extend seal life. Secondary seals are HNBR or Viton® O-rings.
