Screw Conveyor Seal

April 16, 2013

The MECO HB seal uses full contact, soft face, mechanical shaft sealing innovations, sized for CEMA and metric standards. It is ideal for screw conveyors/scrolls, small blenders, bucket elevators, and similar rotating equipment used in bulk process industries. It is designed for horizontal, inclined, and vertical shafts for unsplit installations. The HB Seal replaces standard waste pack housings. HB housings are manufactured from either a hard anodized aluminum, 316L stainless steel, or FDA nylon that cannot be crushed by an over-tightened flange bearing. Two replaceable stainless steel stationary seal faces attach to the seal housing. Inside is a rotating seal face assembly of replaceable rotors and drive elastomer. The elastomer and rotors interlock, forming an air and watertight seal. The low-friction rotating seal faces are at right angles to the shaft and in full contact with the stationary seal faces.
