New Chesterton Cartridge Seal Meets API 610 Specs

—Literature Available The new Chesterton cartridge mounted single seal meets API 610 requirements and provides the hydrocarbon process industry with an off-the-shelf, high-performance seal with capabilities usually found only in custom seals.

The floating throttle bushing has very close clearance over the seal sleeve and provides security when sealing oil, oil distillates, light hydrocarbons or hazardous fluids. The bushing also provides effective control of quench water piped through the gland. The seal is rated for 700 psig (48 BAR), temperature to 550° F (290° C) and a surface speed of 4,000 ft/min (20 m/sec).

The standard construction is 316 stainless steel with special alloys available on request. The cartridge design allows easy, precise installation with gland accurately centered over the pump sleeve by a close fitting lock ring. The stationary seal ring is supported by a graphite cushion to minimize distortion at high pressures. The non-clogging rotary seal ring locates springs and drive lug out of pumped fluid.

Chesterton is offering a free bulletin that gives complete information and a cutaway diagram of the seal.
