Single cartridge seal intended to provide an excellent sealing performance.

The P868 series is a single cartridge seal intended to provide an excellent sealing performance for pumps. As one of the members of RST Mechanical Seals, P868 is designed to operate in a wide range of process fluids. P868 particularly exhibits high performance in the operation of critical process fluids of non-hydrocarbon, non-flashing hydrocarbon and flashing hydrocarbon. The improvements in design reliability and robustness are made possible by the utilisation of sophisticated Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Engineering Software. These features are further verified by the usage of ProEight’s high-end testing equipment, the patented mechanical seal static tester – AccuTEST and mechanical seal dynamic tester – AccuDYN (Patent Pending).
