EP Type 1 MECO Seal
The MECO EP Type-1 seal model is the best choice in wet sealing technology on moderate to very large shaft diameters entering the vessel from any direction. The fully-split configuration uses an elastomer drive to rotate two hardened stainless steel seal faces against two fixed polymeric bearing-grade stationary seal faces.
The EP Type-1 is designed around it’s own fully-split, stuffing box-type housing that utilizes external springs to close the seal faces. The housing forms a seal cavity where gravity-fed water flushes and cools the chamber without any back pressure applied.
