Slurry Gets The AXIUS™ Seal Of Approval: Modular Cartridge Seals

Category: Mining

Small in size yet playing an immensely important role, seals are one of the critical aspects of plant assets and equipment. Nowhere does this hold more weight than in the slurry industry – in particular, extreme conditions such as explosive, toxic or dangerous slurries that need to be sealed. In such cases, only a double seal is appropriate.

Modular Cartridge Seals

The ground-breaking Chesterton Modular Cartridge Seals built on the AXIUS™ platform feature the five essential elements of exceptional mechanical seal design, namely:

  • Protected springs
  • Balanced design
  • Monolithic seal faces
  • Non-fretting design
  • Stationary design

This innovative solution is being embraced in the mining and slurry industry, thanks to the ability to easily and quickly construct an effective seal face around a standard base. Chesterton’s newest modular platform of double heavy duty cartridge seals provides an industry-wide, simple yet powerful solution to dynamic reconfiguration.

Featuring enhanced reliability, high-performance and a host of add on capabilities, the AXIUS™ advantage brings environmental control options (multi-port flushing and quench & drain), superior temperature regulation for extended seal life and the ability to adapt and upgrade – even in the field.
