SEPCO’s abrasive separators provide a simple yet extremely effective method of keeping dirt and other abrasives from the sealing faces. A method that can increase seal or pacing life many times over to greatly reduce replacement and maintenance costs.
Connected to the discharge side of the pump, the separator takes the abrasive-laden fluid and removes foreign bodies completely. The clean fluid is then injected into the gland housing over the seal faces. This is particularly important in plant start ups where foreign particles are invariable present in the liquid.
It also permits the taking of service water from streams, rivers, lakes. and other sources containing abrasives with out the usual wear to seals or packing.
