Inpro/Seal variations for turbines
Inpro/Seal uses high temperature Aflas o-rings on applications up to 400°F. Aflas is a fluorocarbon compound (like Viton) but with better resistance to steam than Viton. For higher temperatures to 750°F, graphite packing and set screws are used.
Turbine isolators can also be split design but requires more room axially along the shaft. Spacing available needs to be identified.
Hi-temp sealant shipped with every turbine seal to be used between housing & stator OD.
Inpro/Seal Bearing Isolators
Technology Support offers the Inpro/Seal Bearing Isolator as a solution to water contamination in turbine lube oil. It is a serious
concern for operations and maintenance personnel. Journal bearings are somewhat tolerant of this
condition, but the thrust bearings and trip components
on the governor end are vulnerable to even slight
water content in the lubricant.
Now, water content in the lube oil can be kept to an
absolute minimum by installing Inpro/SealŪ Bearing
Isolators into the bearing cases in place of the
flow-through labyrinth baffles.
Inpro/SealŪ Bearing Isolators are available for immediate
shipment for all Elliott, Terry, Turbodyne/Dresser
Rand, and other single stage mechanical drive turbines.
They will probably cost you less than the OEM
parts, and perform much more efficiently.
For new turbines and for all field repairs, specify
Inpro/SealŪ Bearing Isolators. The only thing you
have to lose is the water in your lube oil.
