Repair Work

Here is an example of one of our many seal repairs we recondition on a daily basis. This particular seal, as shown below, is a Chesterton type 150, 28mm shaft seal. 

The seal had a broken Silicon Carbide stationary which had also effected the sleeve, causing it to wear in many places.  

Following our strict seal repair routine, we started with strippig the seal and giving all the components a thorough wash to remove any contaminations or excess lubricants. Due to the condition of the damaged parts, it meant we had to replace them with brand new components. Once the seal had it's TLC; put back together and passed it's pressure test- it was good to go and the seal is pactically new.

Environmental Controllers have revolutionized the sealing environment in stuffing boxes 

When used with Chesterton mechanical seals to reduce the flush fluid required and further enhance seal reliability by driving seal cavity circulation and solids removal.

Improving seal reliability and contributing to production efficiencies

There is a SpiralTrac™ Environmental controller for every application, from split designs, designed specifically for the 442 split seal, to solid stainless steel designs for conventional cartridge seal installations. SpiralTrac™ environmental controllers can also be designed for specific stuffing box/back cover arrangements.
