Some of the standard offerings are: Split Seals, Cartridge Seals, Cassette Seals, Gas Seals, Slurry Seals, Mixer / Agitator Seals, Bearing and Gearbox Protection, Component Seals and Spiral Tac.
Most widely used mechanical seals in the marine industry:
Chesterton S10 Single Cassette Seal – engineered to meet the majority of plant-wide applications; all wearing parts are contained in a single, replaceable cassette unit with a common, universal gland. Repairs involve only an exchange of cassettes.
Chesterton 150 Single Cartridge Seal – cost effective option designed for baseline applications and for upgrading packed or component sealed equipment.
Chesterton 442C Cartridge Split Seal – combines superior performance with ease of installation without the need for teardowns; it offers maximum installation flexibility with its short axial length and flexible gland positioning; simplifies repair by using a standard spare parts kit.
Mechanical Seal Repair Centers
In addition, we can offer mechanical seal repairs supported through Chesterton Munich and Chesterton Hungary – Mechanical Seal Repair Centers.
The above centers, which are ISO certified, were created to support the European Market, where not only Chesterton seals are repaired but also any seal type and size of another maker i.e.: Pillar, Flowserve, Framo, Burgman, IMO, Naniwa etc. Both Chesterton repair center facilities ensure quick repair, detailed documentation, fast deliveries and relevant Chesterton seal warranty for 6 months.
Chesterton’s advanced packing uses the latest in fiber, lubricant and braiding technology to deliver superior leakage control. Fibers are individually coated with lubricant before braiding, thus eliminating wicking and providing superior blocking for longer, leak-free performance and lower life-cycle costs for your valves and pumps.
With a state-of-the-art valve testing facility Chesterton conducts both API and ISO test protocols and provides a wide range of services to many valve manufacturers. With the ability to simulate many critical applications, we can help you choose the right valve and packing for your needs.
Most widely used packings in the marine industry:
Chesterton 1400R – reinforced, braided, graphite packing with a corrosion inhibitor – ideal for high temperature high pressure applications.
Chesterton 412W – combines a newly developed synthetic composite yarn with a specially formulated break-in lubricant; inter-braided construction, superior tensile strength.
Chesterton 1727 – synthetic packing designed for general service pump applications. It consists of inter-braided, continuous, synthetic thermoset fibers immunized with PTFE lubricant and a silicon-free, break-in, sacrifical lubricant.
Chesterton 477-1 – multi-purpose packing, combines a new yarn formulation with superior blocking agents preventing penetration of gases and liquids through the packing.
Chesterton 3500 Valvelon – a multi-layered 100% PTFE packing/sealant withstands a wide range of temperatures and seals virtually all chemicals; ideal for valve packing and flange gaskets.
Many factors must be considered when choosing the proper gasket for an application including safety, temperature, pressure, the media to be sealed, equipment conditions, versatility of the product and cost. Chesterton’s wide range of gasket prodcuts means that we can address flange sealing needs from water to critical high-temperature, high-pressure process conditions.
