Metso is launching a new slurry seal to meet the increased sealing demands from its customers.
Focus has been to offer a sealing solution that minimises dilution of sealing water into product, eliminates leakage to atmosphere, increases life time of the seal by preventing slurry from entering the seal chamber and allows easy conversion from box packing solutions to mechanical seal solutions, says the company.
“Metso's new ESF design seals satisfy the demand for advanced and reliable sealing solutions on even the heaviest of slurry applications typically found in mining applications,” says Metso.
“Customers are requesting to install mechanical seals into tougher and tougher applications due to environmental reasons and to satisfy the goal of reducing water consumption. To satisfy these requirements it was necessary to develop new seals to perform to their expectations.”
