On the Lubrication of Mechanical Face Seals

Abstract

In order to minimize leakage of a mechanical face seal, due to environmental regulations, the separation between the faces should be as small as possible. As a consequence, an increase of friction (power loss) and wear (reducing life time) occurs. Hence, an operational condition is sought for which wear and friction are acceptable, and, moreover, the… (More)
