Waterous Mechanical Seal Kit
CM/CS, Drive End
For CM and CS Pumps (Built After 3/1/94)
A Waterous Mechanical Seal is a type of seal used to prevent fluid leakage in centrifugal fire pumps and other industrial equipment. The mechanical seal works by creating a barrier between the fluid being pumped and the atmosphere or surrounding environment.
A Waterous Mechanical Seal typically consists of two main components: a stationary component and a rotating component. The stationary component is typically located in the pump housing, while the rotating component is attached to the pump shaft. As the pump shaft rotates, the rotating component of the mechanical seal rotates with it.
The mechanical seal is designed to withstand the pressure and temperature of the fluid being pumped, and is typically made from materials such as ceramic, carbon, or tungsten carbide. These materials are chosen for their strength, durability, and resistance to wear and corrosion.
