Classification of Mechanical Seals

Mechanical seal classification by arrangement:
Single seals

Inside mounted mechanical seal
Inside mounted = pressure on outside diameter of parts

Outside mounted mechanical seal
Outside mounted = pressure on inside diameter of parts

The inside mounted mechanical seal is most popular type of single mechanical seal.

Most seals are designed to leak so that the liquid or gas will lubricate the seal faces. Applications that do not utilize substances that must be contained, such as hazardous gases, dangerous chemicals or flammable liquids, will generally use single seals.

Next: Classification by arrangement: Dual seals
