MECOs AH-series custom shaft seals simplify installation, cleaning and maintenance
MECO’s AH-series custom shaft seals are designed to simplify installation, routine cleaning and maintenance. These patented seals are ideal for dry, abrasive powder processes in food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, where frequent product changes and wash-downs are required. Seals can be fitted with flush water inlet and drain ports for CIP. AH seals can be retrofit onto ribbon blenders, paddle mixers, dryers, screw conveyors and similar rotating machinery. Split models can be easily installed without removing the bearing or drive. MECO seals are custom-engineered to accommodate 6mm or more of total shaft run-out. Seal maintenance can be predicted far in advance. Gas barrier fluid consumption is 7 +/- 7 litres per minute.
Because the AH seal’s driving elastomer is its only contact with the shaft, it accommodates significant radial shaft misalignment and shock loads, as well as thermal growth in high-temperature process machinery. The elastomer also protects the shaft from abrasion damage. Heavy stainless plate stators ensure long life, despite extensive handling. Available in FDA materials.
