The mechanical seal against the stationary component
|The mechanical seal against the stationary component|
One of the most common ways of sealing a rotating pump shaft is by using mechanical seals.
The 3 components of a mechanical seal are:
1. The rotating component that moves together with the rotating
2. The stationary component that is fixed to the pump housing.
3. The spring that presses the rotating component onto the
stationary component axially.
The spring(s) is installed around the shaft and rotates with the rotating component. The purpose of the spring is to press the rotating component of the mechanical seal against the stationary component so that the matching surfaces are in contact with each other axially to the shaft.
Because the axial rubbing surfaces in contact are very highly polished, there is almost no leak there. Water does not leak through the pump housing opening because of the o-ring pressed between the stationary component and the pump housing. Water will also not leak through the shaft because of the o-ring in the rotating component gripping against the shaft.
So, if there is a leak in a Split Seal of a pump, look for the sources of leak in those 3 places. Surely one of them is not sealing properly.
A Split Seal system air conditioner is great for residential areas or homes because they are able to provide homeowners the choice in terms of efficiency as compared to other central air conditioning units. Some homes can obtain benefits from Split Seal types because they can be added for cooling a room without the need for duct work.
Split types can be combined with window type air conditioning systems so that you have alternatives for saving energy as well as money. When Pump Seal types are combined with central air systems, you can obtain better cooling capacity. More so, you have the option of turning off your larger unit to save money and power consumption.
If you are not sure about the installation for Pump Seal type air conditioning systems, many manufacturers and companies offer installation services. They help customers with proper installation of the Cartridge Seal types. More so, if you are in multiple family homes, they can help you install the Cartridge Seal type air conditioning unit in the most workable area for better cooling and zoning.
Nevertheless, Cartridge Seal type air conditioning systems are perfect for any area. They are more energy efficient and provide cleaner and safer air. They are able to discard odors such as cooking odors, pet smells, or cigarette smoke. Thus, they can also provide health benefits especially for individuals with respiratory problems such as asthma. They can minimize dust, pollen, and other pollutants that can affect the respiratory system.
