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

​​​​​​​​​​​Traditional main shaft turbine seals typically leak heavily and can cause considerable shaft damage. These conventional seal options often require expensive filtration systems for flush water as well as auxillary pumps to remove considerable seal leakage.  

Chesterton's innovative 442 split mechanical seals deliver a radically different level of sealing sophistication for hydropower plants around the globe.  You'll benefit from: 

  • Reduced flush water usage and filtration requirements
  • Simple installation
  • No packing maintenance or break-in requirements
  • Less shaft/sleeve wear 
  • Proven technology with years of reliable operation
  • Lower maintenance and operating costs
  • Field repairabilty
  • Reduced or eliminated secondary pumping equipment required to control seal leakage
