Question: What is the most common mechanical Seal?
The most common type of mechanical seal used in various industries is the single mechanical seal. Single mechanical seals are widely employed in pumps, mixers, and other rotating equipment to prevent leakage of fluids (such as water, oil, or chemicals) between the rotating shaft and the stationary housing.
The single mechanical seal consists of two main components: a rotating seal face that attaches to the shaft and a stationary seal face that mounts to the equipment housing. These faces come into contact with each other, creating a barrier to prevent the escape of fluids.
