Slurry Seals - RIS

BRAND: BW Seals

The RIS seal has a unique, non-clogging design that does not utilize springs or bellows. The innovative design of the adaptive components allows the seal to be installed from the wet-end of the pump and to be adjusted externally. With many pump designs, the seal may be reset automatically during impeller clearance adjustment.

Operating Parameters

Up to 10.3 bar (150 psi), up to 110°C (230°F), up to 11 m/s (35 fps)

Features and Benefits

  • A smoothly contoured flexible rubber element holds the seal faces together and absorbs relative shaft movement when the pump is in operation.
  • A true non-clogging design provides longer MTBF with the rubber in shear component.
  • External adjustment capability compensates for minor seal wear with no pump disassembly and compensates for pump misalignment.
  • No dynamic o-ring provides for longer MTBF by eliminating seal face hang-ups.
