Soft-face Mechanical Shaft Seals

Soft-face Mechnical Shaft SealsSoft-face mechanical shaft seals utilize relatively soft, malleable face materials for components that rotate with the shaft. They are typically in full contact against a fixed opposing seal face orientated perpendicular to the shaft. This differs from how traditional, hard-face, mechanical seals operate where fluid film or boundary lubrication is needed, as is commonly found on centrifugal or lobe pumps, where Soft-face mechanical shaft seals are not used.

A few of the benefits of the soft-face mechanical shaft seals are dry-running service, they inherently tolerate shaft runout and mis-centered shafting, offer improved performance when subjected to vacuum service and are used in all process containment conditions: Vapors, liquids, solids, powders or mixed solutions over various phases or transitional phases from hot to cold or pressure to vacuum.

FTL Technology's range of soft-face mechanical shaft seals are named MECO Seals, designed and manufactured by Woodex Bearing Co Inc.
