|HB MECO® Seal||The HB model is a full-contact, soft-face mechanical shaft seal, using an elastomer drive to rotate bearing-grade, synthetic seal faces against fixed, stainless steel seal faces. The various seal assemblies are sized for equipment following standards of the Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers' Association (C.E.M.A.) and their metric equivalents.||Bulk process industries|
|HC MECO® Seal||The MECO HC seal model is the best air-free choice in sealing technology for screw conveyors . The HC model is a full-contact, soft-face mechanical shaft seal, using an elastomer drive to rotate bearing-grade, polymeric seal faces against fixed, stainless steel seal faces. The various seal assemblies are sized for equipment following standards of the Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (C.E.M.A.) and their metric equivalents.||Bulk process industries|
|MECO® Seals for ATEX Applications||ATEX is a series of explosion prevention standards, codified in EN 94/9/EC, to which equipment manufacturers must conform, in order to place machinery in service in Europe in potentially explosive environments. |
Compliance involves formal risk assessments and the use of certified machinery and components. ATEX was mandated in 2003, after which time new machinery must be compliant. Upgrades or retrofits to machinery which was in service prior to 2004 must also be ATEX-compliant.
MECO seals can be designed for certain explosive atmosphere applications where EN 94/9/EC must be adhered to.
MECO's soft-face technology uses materials with high inherent lubricity, which run cooler than radial, constricting seals without the use of fluid lubricants.
|AH Type-2 MECO® Seal||The MECO AH Type-2 model is the best choice for fitting a split seal in limited space on small to large shaft diameters. The configuration is a double mechanical seal using an elastomer drive to rotate bearing-grade synthetic seal faces against fixed, stainless steel seal faces. The AH Type-2 uses a barrier fluid to pneumatically load the seal faces and isolate the process from the atmosphere. The AH Type-2 is suited for MRO and OEM equipment.|
|EA-Type1 MECO® Seal||The MECO EA Type-1 fully-split seal model is a great selection when sealing wet slurries. The fully-split configuration uses an elastomer drive to rotate two hardened stainless steel seal faces against two fixed, bearing grade polymeric stationary seal faces with their contacting sealing plane set perpendicular to the shaft. The polymeric stationary seal faces are built into two fully-split stainless steel plates. One split plate is mounted to the vessel wall and the other is manually positioned a set distance from the mounted plate. Between the plates an elastomer is used to form a seal cavity where gravity-fed water flushes and cools the chamber without any back pressure applied.||Where axial or linear space is limited, the MECO EA Type-1 seal model is the solution for sealing wet abrasive slurries encountered in:|
|EA-Type2 MECO® Seal||The MECO EA Type-2 model is the best choice in many sealing applications for low to moderate shaft speeds on small to very large shaft diameters. The EA Type-2 uses full-contact, soft-face mechanical shaft sealing technology, sized for OEM and custom in-house process equipment. The EA Type-2 model provides the superior performance, durability and quality of workmanship that are hallmarks of MECO’s many other highly-regarded seals.|
|EP Type-1 MECO® Seal||The MECO EP Type-1 seal model is the best choice in wet sealing technology on moderate to very large shaft diameters entering the vessel from any direction. The fully-split configuration uses an elastomer drive to rotate two hardened stainless steel seal faces against two fixed polymeric bearing-grade stationary seal faces. The EP Type-1 is designed around it’s own fully-split, stuffing box-type housing that utilizes external springs to close the seal faces. The housing forms a seal cavity where gravity-fed water flushes and cools the chamber without any back pressure applied.|
|EP Type-2 MECO® Seal||The MECO EP Type-2 model is the best choice for many sealing applications with low to medium-high shaft speeds, on small to large shaft diameters. The configuration is a double mechanical seal using an elastomer drive to rotate bearing-grade, synthetic seal faces against fixed, hardened stainless steel seal faces. The EP Type-2 uses full-contact, soft-face mechanical shaft sealing technology, sized for OEM and existing in-house process equipment.|
|EP Type-3 MECO® Seal||The MECO EP Type 3 model is the best choice in split sealing technology for horizontal dryers and reactors in vacuum service. The configuration is a double mechanical seal, using a mechanical drive to rotate bearing-grade, synthetic seal faces against fixed, hardened stainless steel seal faces. The EP Type 3 uses full-contact, soft face mechanical shaft sealing technology, sized for OEM and custom in-house process equipment.|
|OFS-Type1 MECO® Seal||The MECO OFS Type-1 seal is frequently the best, fully-split seal for vacuum, low pressure, and abrasive applications. The design tolerates both runout and thermal growth at moderate speeds. The OFS Type-1 places a single, hardened, stainless steel rotary seal face, spring-loaded against a single, bearing-grade, polymeric stationary seal face. The seal does not require a barrier fluid. A wide selection of materials are available, allowing service in diverse processes. The fully-split seal is custom-designed for existing process equipment or is tailored to OEM or end-users wishes.|
|OFS Type-2 MECO® Seal||The patented MECO OFS Type-2 model is the best choice in many sealing applications for low to moderate speed equipment. The OFS Type-2 uses full-contact, soft-face mechanical shaft sealing technology, sized for OEM and custom in-house process equipment.|
|MECO®-PAC||The MECO-PAC is an elastomer-driven, MECO seal designed to replace packing in stuffing boxes. It is used primarily in airlocks and rotary valves, where no installation clearance exists for an externally-mounted seal.|
Like other MECO seals, the MECO-PAC seals on a plane perpendicular to the shaft, eliminating abrasive damage to the shaft caused by packing or lip seals. The MECO-PAC has proven effective in maintaining pressure differential across airlocks, without the frequent adjustments required by packings.
|MECO-PAC seals should only be used in applications where there is no possibility of installing an external seal.|
|MECO® Marine Sea Gard||The SEA-GARD provides an effective rudder post seal in abrasive, coastal waters. Wear materials are softer than those used in traditional mechanical seals, and permit the use of wide-radius seal faces. These easily tolerate severe eccentric rotation and permit wear to occur without compromising the seal.|
|MECO® Torque Tube||A precision Wera adjustable torque screwdriver offers accurate and repeatable adjustment of the HC seal's clamp. TheTorque Tube kit includes the needed 7mm nutsetter for engaging the clamp head, as well as 6” and 10” bit extensions to facilitate access to the clamps in all sizes of HC seals, with instructions, packaged in a convenient plastic tube. The tools are also available individually.|
