The MECO EA Type-2 model is the best choice in many sealing applications for low to moderate shaft speeds on small to very large shaft diameters. The EA Type-2 uses full-contact, soft-face mechanical shaft sealing technology, sized for OEM and custom in-house process equipment. The EA Type-2 model provides the superior performance, durability and quality of workmanship that are hallmarks of MECO’s many other highly-regarded seals. MECO’s first rate customer service is provided for each EA Type-2 seal sold.
When Are EA Type-2 Seals The Best Option?
The MECO EA Type-2 seal model is ideal for large solvent extractors, pressurized conveyors, holding tanks or similar rotating equipment. Fitment for some blenders, dryers & sigma mixers is also possible. Common industries that use the seal are plastics, oilseed processors, chemicals, carbon anodes, metals, pharmaceuticals and food processors. The EA Type-2 seal model is typically used on horizontal, inclined or vertical shafts and configured for a fully-split installation. They are frequently used on rotating shafts where an inert gas barrier in the seal chamber is beneficial.
The seal is appropriate for vacuum service and steady-state applications with infrequent thermal expansion or pressure changes. The seal is adjustable without having to empty the process material. For applications with frequent thermal cycles, pressure cycles and/or aggressive chemicals, the MECO Model EP Type 3 seal is a better match.
