SHARPE MIXERS: Mixer Seals

January 12, 2011

A new line of dry-running mechanical seals for mixers, agitators, and reactors that meets the ASME-BPE 2009 standards for cleanability is now available. Sharpe RD dry-running mechanical seals were developed for sanitary applications where product contamination from barrier fluids is unacceptable. Capable of handling a 0.150 in. total run-out, these fully BPE-compliant seals feature a proprietary carbon blend that virtually eliminates the face squeal typical of other brands, and are supplied with or without a debris well.

The seals feature sloped internal surfaces to facilitate drainage and enhance cleanability, including the debris well flush ports. Internal metallic parts exposed to product have a 20 Ra finish with optional electro-polishing, and all components are either FDA approved or USP Class VI rated.
