The mechanical seal technology is a sum of mechanical engineering and physical property technology. More specifically, the core of the mechanical seal technology is the tribology (friction, wear and lubrication) technology used to control the surfaces where the stationary and rotary rings slide against each other.
Mechanical seals with improved functionality will not only prevent the liquid or gas handled by a machine from leaking to the outside, but also improve the operating efficiency of the machine, helping save energy and prevent environmental contamination. Moreover, in some cases rotating machines handle media that, in the case of leakage, can lead to a dangerous situation. Therefore mechanical seals need to be reliable through manufacturing backed by solid engineering expertise.
Eagle Industry works on product development, making the optimal use of our proprietary measurement and analysis technologies:
- Analysis technology: Thermal and structural analyses of mechanical seal face materials.
- Measurement technology: Micro-torque testing of small shaft seals, rotation and visualization testing of large shaft seals.
