Mechanical Seals Operating Principles

Essential elements of a mechanical seal

These are the three essential elements of a mechanical seal:

Seal faces: one rotating with the shaft and one stationary in the pump casing, cover or flange.

Secondary seals: one to seal the rotating face to the shaft and one to seal the stationary face to the pump cover or flange.

Metal parts: to transmit torque and to provide an axial mechanical force to load the faces.
