Standard shaft seal supplied on an IMPEC mixer is a variation of a stuffing box design. Other designs including simple lip seals, split gland or full mechanical types are also available as required. All seals use a heavy stainless steel mounting ring welded to the mixer end plate. Horizontal and vertical ribs reinforce the end plate. The mounting ring design allows the seal to be completely disassembled and moved back for cleaning and inspection. Shaft runout, measured at the mounting ring, is .000" to .002".
