Solutions for the Hydropower Industry - Split Mechanical Seals
Keep Water in Its Place

​​​​​​​​​Conventional main shaft turbine seals are designed to leak and, in most cases, wear the sleeve they seal against. They also require clean, filtered water that is flushed within the seal to prevent solids from embedding between the sealing elements and the sleeve.
