Cartridge Seals & Bushings
1, the assembled combination of a cartridge seal 11, a again plate 12, a pump motor thirteen, and a pump housing 14 is proven. In this instance, showing a “close-coupled” pump, an influence body adapter sixteen extends between the pump housing and the pump motor thirteen.
Cartridge seals are self-contained items consisting of a shaft sleeve, seal, and gland plate. Unlike single-use respirators, this one is designed for long-term use and is compatible with a wide range of replaceable filters available in varied NIOSH scores, together with N95 and P100. (As with all facepiece-type respirators, you should use cartridges made by the same company because the mask.) N95 cartridges are a sensible choice should you’re making ready for wildfire smoke. P100 filters or cartridges are much more efficient, as a result of their filtration effectivity is greater, at ninety nine.ninety seven % of fantastic particulates, versus N95 filters’ ninety five p.c. But as a P-designated filter, they’re specifically designed to protect against oil-based mostly particulates in the air, such as some pesticides.
However, the invention can also be adapted to be used with a “body-mounted” pump , by which the facility frame adapter extending from the pump housing holds pump shaft bearings, and is not related to the pump motor. In addition, for a “frame-mounted” pump, the shaft of the motor doesn't prolong into the pump housing. Rather, a separate pump shaft extends from the facility body adapter, and is coupled in co-axial fashion to the shaft of the motor. Therefore, it's an object of the current invention to provide a cartridge-type mechanical seal building, which removes the mechanical seal from the “stuffing box” and relocates it in a position proximate the pump impeller.
NIOSH approval means that any pancake-style filters, just like the 3M 2097 filters, will protect you just as well as onerous-plastic cartridge filters, just like the 3M cartridges. The plastic cartridges are costlier, but they’re also sturdier, and their swept-again design makes them less more likely to obscure your imaginative and prescient. means between stated snap ring and stated circumferential lip for maintaining said rotating seal face and stated stationary seal face in sealing relation. It is significant to note that the inner annular recess seventy six and the outer annular recess 77 may be machined into the back plate of an present pump.
In different phrases, the present pump of a customer may be retrofitted with the cartridge seal 11 by modifying the old back plate of the prevailing pump. This represents a major savings in value and time, while permitting full benefit to be taken of the easy installation and servicing features of the present invention. The rotatable shaft collar meeting 27 additionally consists of the rotatable insert fifty six, through which axial gap fifty seven also passes. The outer facet of rotatable insert 56 features a decrease recess accommodating an O-ring 69, in sealing engagement with shaft 23. The outer aspect of insert 56 also contains an higher stepped portion fitted with an O-ring 71, in sealing engagement with rotating collar 54.
