Bearing Protection

In the Industrial Processing market, MAGSEALs can hermetically seal bearing compartments in applications and offer high integrity lubrication retention in equipment such as:

  • Horizontal and vertical pumps
  • Motors
  • Gearboxes
  • Pillow blocks
  • Steam Turbines
  • Compressors and Expanders
  • Mixers
  • Agitators
  • Cooling Towers
  • Extruders

Designs can be customized with a unitized, easy to install cartridge design applied in either horizontal or vertical pump applications.

Standard features include:

  • Standard 0.002 inch press fit
  • Meets API 610 Standards
  • Sizes from 0.25 to 5.00 inch standard sizes with larger diameter seals available by consulting the factory

A study into Industrial Processing equipment conducted at a major refinery concluded that the primary cause of equipment failure has been due to bearing failure, and that forty percent of overall rotating equipment failures were due to a bearing failure.  And of these, over half of these bearing failures were caused by either particle contamination or corrosion resulting from fluid contamination.   With such a significant percentage of rotating equipment failures being instigated by contamination, hermetically sealing the bearing housing using MAGSEALs can extend life expectancy to more than double.  And for a typical pulp, paper, chemical processing or petrochemical plant with thousands of installed pumps, the savings from an upgrade using MAGSEALs can be in the millions of dollars per year.

Nuclear Process Pump Seals

In the Power and Process Industries, shaft leakage is the number one cause of pump, gearbox, and mixer downtime and is a major contributor to increasing maintenance costs.  Unplanned reactive repair of equipment to fix a leaking seal is unacceptable when continuous process or 24/7 uptime is required.

Reliable seals are critical to managing downtime and maintenance costs. MAGSEAL sealing solutions can significantly impact mean time between failure (MTBF), sustaining end user performance metrics. Custom, application-specific engineered sealing solutions from MAGSEAL can be considered another tool in the sealing toolkit for such requirements.



MAGSEALs provide 100% positive face to face sealing with the following capabilities

  • Full flooded conditions
