About Mechanical seal Type 32

The cost-efficient Type 32 vessel seal is an outside-mounted balanced single-component seal with self-lubricating seal faces. Neither external cooling nor lubrication equipment or a supply system is required. It is excellent for undemanding mixer applications and for operation in vacuum conditions.

Design Features mechanical seal Type 32

  • Debris well option — Isolates and captures face wear particles in gland cavity, preventing contamination of process liquid or gas. Pipe taps allow flushing during cleaning cycle
  • Clamped-in mating ring (standard) — Clamped-in design prevents axial movement of mating ring. Mating ring is available in tungsten carbide or ceramic
  • “T” bar design — Simple, rugged drive design that withstands constant movement and vibrations of mixer applications. The Type 32 has been designed to  ccommodate up to 0.150″ total runout

Product Description Type 32

Type 32 Seals are outside-mounted ID balanced seals with the seal faces in contact during  peration. No auxiliary equipment is required for lubrication. These seals are excellent for operation in vacuum conditions, and meet the needs of pharmaceutical and chemical processing industries.

  • For mixers, agitators and reactor vessels
    • Seal design eliminates the need for double seals with
    ancillary equipment in mixer applications
  • Type 32 Seals can be repaired in the field to minimize
    replacement costs, downtime and lost revenue
