In applications where the process temperature exceeds elastomer capabilities, metal bellows mechanical seals with graphite secondary seals are a good sealing option. The 886HT Bellows Single Seal is designed for high-temperature services typically found in chemical and petrochemical processes. Graphite secondary seals replace O-Rings to achieve the higher temperature requirements.
Advanced bellows design distributes pressure uniformly across the span of the bellows plate to reduce stress and minimize weld fatigue. Component design replaces most OEM seals.
