KSB mechanical seals: ensuring a long service life for pumps
In every pump, the mechanical seal is one of the most important components. To enable your KSB pumps to operate at their best, we offer low-wear mechanical seals that have been developed in-house for different pump type series. The mechanical seal is the pump component exposed to the most intensive wear. As a result, the quality and durability of a mechanical seal have a major influence on the service life of a pump. With the right low-wear mechanical seal from KSB, the time that a pump can be used until it requires servicing can be significantly extended. This also reduces maintenance costs.
Technical benefits of a mechanical seal made by KSB
Compared with conventional sealing elements, each mechanical seal manufactured by KSB offers a number of technical advantages:
- Robust design
- Easy to assemble
- Not susceptible to impurities
- KSB mechanical seals are specially developed for KSB pumps and are therefore perfectly designed for the installation space inside the pump
