Disposable Rotating Fluid Seal

This seal is arranged as shown in the sectional view. Flexible tubing, not shown, is sealed in a molded plastic clamp 3, 5, that will snap-lock onto two ceramic seal halves 7, 9. The joints between the ceramics and plastics are sealed by compressing thin rubber gasket wafers 11, 13.

Two of these units are used with the flat ceramic faces facing each other. They are snap-assembled into a molded plastic housing 15. Accurate running alignment between the two seal halves is obtained by the use of a central aligning pin 17.
