RFID Technology for Mechanical Seals


ViewIn Allows for Easy Seal Identification and Recordkeeping in Web/Mobile App

Chesterton seals embedded with ViewIn Chesterton Technology provide plant maintenance staff with the ability to scan eq​uipment quickly to identify the type of Chesterton seal, as well as obtain related pressure test reports, device drawings, and other helpful data using an easy-to-use web/mobile app.

This technology is included with all new Chesterton S10 Single Cassette Seals and Chesterton S20 Double Cassette Seals.

Chesterton mechanical seals equipped with ViewIn Chesterton Technology can be identified by two Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags installed in the seal gland. The tags contain a unique serial number. 

ViewIn-enabled seals can be safely scanned while equipment is in operation.**

​How It Works


  1. Download the ViewIn web/mobile app which can be used to identify and retrieve information about a Chesterton mechanical seal containing RFID tags.

  2. Use a RFID Bluetooth-enabled reader along with the ViewIn app to identify and retrieve information about a Chesterton mechanical seal containing RFID tags.

  3. Use a RFID Bluetooth-enabled reader along with the ViewIn app to scan embedded Chesterton RFID seal tags to identify the serial number and log a seal.  RFID readers can be purchased by contacting your local Chesterton Sales office.

Create a ViewIn account and begin storing mechanical seal data for furture reference on a moment's notice.* Adding and removing stored serial numbers on the app is easy.

For detailed instructions, see the ViewIn Users Guide.


 *Chesterton ViewIn app requires Internet connectivity.

**Obstacles in the path between the RFID tag and RFID reader may prevent effective scanning while equipment is in operation in some cases.
