Steam Turbine Sealing Solutions
Increase Steam Turbine Performance and Reliability
The Importance of Effective Sealing
Process steam turbines are critical equipment used within multiple industries. They are designed to operate for many years, but can perform poorly and fail prematurely due to steam leakage.
Ineffective gland seals allow steam to leak out of the process, reducing equipment efficiency and increasing emissions. Eventually, leaking steam travels down the shaft and enters the bearing case, causing bearing failure which leads to unplanned downtime and decreased equipment reliability.
Total Steam Turbine Protection
Increase steam turbine performance and reliability with highly engineered Inpro/Seal sealing solutions for process steam turbines.
Enhance Steam Turbine Performance
The Sentinel® Floating Brush Seal is an effective gland seal that reduces maintenance, downtime and steam loss over the operating life of your process steam turbine.
A Permanent Bearing Seal Solution
For over 40 years, the Inpro/Seal Bearing Isolator has been increasing equipment reliability with permanent bearing protection against contamination ingress and lubrication loss.
Specific to process steam turbines, the Steam Turbine Bearing Isolator design utilizes unique features to provide permanent bearing protection on process steam turbines in high or low temperature environments.
