A mechanical seal system consists of the mechanical seal cartridge, the hydraulic component and the installation, which consists of the piping, instrumentation, and fastening.

In mixing technology, a reliable sealing of the mixing vessel can be ensured only by means of a complete mechanical seal system. Careful selection of suitable hydraulic and installation components is at least as important as the safe construction of the mechanical seal itself. The supply of seal liquid is of primary safety-related importance because the physical processes in the sealing gap and on the  sealing surfaces are very sensitive to high temperatures.

In sealing technology, the storage can be done in different ways. For simple sealing tasks, you can use the thermosiphon effect in the seal liquid as well as the natural convection in the surrounding air. If the thermosiphon effect is not sufficient to dissipate the accumulated heat quickly enough, the seal liquid must be conveyed with a pump.

A seal is considered technically tight when the pressure in the seal chamber is always higher than the tank pressure. To maintain pressure, the EKATO hydraulic components can be overlayed with constant pressure or work with a pressure compensator in which the seal pressure automatically follows the vessel pressure.
