The Development Of Low Friction, Low Leakage Mechanical Seals Using Laser Technology
MetadataShow full item record
An ideal mechanical seal would operate reliably, for long periods, without wear, with permanently low friction and extremely low leakage. Real mechanical seals often do wear and leak appreciably, however, particularly when the operating conditions, pressure, temperature and speed, vary with time. The reverse flow laser mechanized seal offers a way to bring mechanical seals closer to the ideal.
