Available from Woodex Bearing Co., Inc., MECO(R) shaft seals are custom-engineered for conveyors, mixers, dryers and other rotating powder and bulk solids processing equipment. MECO's seal designs are based on the use of a driving elastomer, which wraps around and grips the shaft, both protecting the shaft from abrasion damage and blocking product migration along the shaft. The elastomer turns with the shaft and drives internal, sacrificial rotors to turn against stator plates, forming the seal interface. No relative movement takes place between the shaft and any of the rotating seal components, so all wear is limited to the seal interfaces between rotors and stators.
