Chemical-Pump Seal

May 11, 2006
The GCX single-cartridge, chemicalpump seal targets ANSI and DIN pump applications, where pumps and seals must operate in multiple chemical environments without chemical compatibility change-outs.

The unit features an alloy C-276 bellows, 316-stainless-steel components, and flexible, graphite foil secondary seals. The seal uses durable metals to withstand corrosion and harsh chemical conditions. Operating limits include pressures between 0 and 200 psig (0 to 13.8 bar), temperatures between 40 and 400°F, and speeds up to 3,000 fpm. The seal comes in eight standard sizes from 1.125 to 2.625 in. and six standard sizes from 33 to 65 mm.
