  • Longer service life via 0.20 mm (0.008 inch) thick standard welded bellows for maximum resistance to corrosion, shaft vibrations and centrifugal forces
  • Optimal performance is attained by selecting from three standard seal face balances; the BXQ seal is high balanced for flashing hydrocarbon applications
  • Increased maintenance intervals due to a self-cleaning rotating bellows that replaces the need for springs and dynamic elastomers to lessen clogging vulnerabilities
  • Maintain the performance benefits of self-cleaning rotating bellows in dual pressurized Arrangement 3 seals with the BXB seal’s unique ID pressurized seal face balance
