Single-cartridge chemical pump seal

GCX single mechanical cartridge seal is designed for ANSI and DIN pump services where pumps and seals must operate in multiple chemical environments without chemical compatibility change-outs. It is suited for intermediate and batch processes in short-run chemical plants and in multiple-campaign specialty chemical and pharmaceutical plants using solvents and steam for decontamination.

GCX single mechanical cartridge seal is designed for ANSI and DIN pump services where pumps and seals must operate in multiple chemical environments without chemical compatibility change-outs. It is suited for intermediate and batch processes in short-run chemical plants and in multiple-campaign specialty chemical and pharmaceutical plants using solvents and steam for decontamination. Seal features an alloy C-276 bellows, 316 stainless steel components, and flexible graphite foil secondary seals. Drive mechanism and minor parts are isolated from the process fluid to minimize chemical stress. Standard operating limits include pressures from 0-200 psig (0-13.8 bar), temperatures from -40 to 400 °F (-40 to 204 °C), and speeds up to 15.2 m/s (3,000 fpm). It comes in eight standard inch sizes (1.125 to 2.625 in.) and six standard metric sizes (33 to 65 mm). www.flowserve.com Flowserve Corp.
