Mechanical seal suppliers in UK

Mechanical seal suppliers in UK

Mechanical seal suppliers in UK

Hi - First post

We have an ongoing project which requires the use of a mechanical shaft seal. This is an OEM project for test equipment work. For this application the seal needs to withstand a pressure of 1.2MPa when static which will drop to ~0.7MPa in use. The shaft speed is low ~900 rpm, diameter 16mm. Not a terribly demanding requirement. So we just need to purchase a couple of mechanical seals for this. We will fabricate the housing and any other stuff. Will probably fill the seal cavity with light oil. Temperature range 0-30C (UK ambient - certainly my absolute limit smile).
However it seems that unless we have a part number or the name of the piece of equipment its used in no one is interested especially as we only need 2 (one of them for a spare). So I thought I'd ask if any of you guys in the UK would know of a supplier willing to help us on this.

Many Thanks

The seal size (ID) you request may be too small. You need to buy the smallest standard seal available and mount it on a shaft sleeve.

I would look through your RD mechanical catalogue first.
