Mission Statement

Our mission at Slurry Dynamics International Inc. is to incorporate flexibility into our manufacturing processes to rapidly and effectively respond to our customers' needs. We continue to develop our seals to be as simple as possible but rugged enough to stand up to the hardships of operating in abrasive slurries.

The Slurry Dynamics International Inc. PANACEALTM

Pictured above is a cross-section of our standard short cartridge PANACEALTM slurry mechanical seal. This design is used in various types of pumps, agitators, and other rotating equipment.

We have designed and developed our slurry mechanical seal as a simple "preset cartridge seal" that requires no measuring or special tools for assembly into the equipment housing. We also developed our seal to be easily disassembled and rebuilt in the field or plant workshop without needing any special tools. Our replacement seal parts can be easily fitted by hand using only a suitable lubricant and basic hand tools.

In addition to standard designs for the most common pumps, we designed and developed many variations to suit specific applications and equipment. In our development process, we always keep in mind important maintenance considerations, such as easy installation and use.

Our Seals Run In The Product

The PANACEAL successfully seals many products in various types of fluid handling equipment without any kind of flush. This equipment mechanically seals such products as:

  • Lime Slurry
  • Coal Slurry
  • Potash
  • Soda Ash
  • Alumina Hydrate
  • Catalyst Slurry
  • Various Caustic Slurries
  • Phosphate Slurry
  • Raw Sewage

In all of these instances, our mechanical seal runs in the product with no flush. This process eliminates product dilution or contamination from barrier fluids or gases.

Flush Option Availability

While the PANACEAL slurry mechanical seal is “flushless,” we recognize that customer needs differ from service to service. For some applications, flushes prolong seal life, which is why we offer an optional flush for those situations.

Constantly Innovating

We are constantly evaluating various seal face materials and combinations, not only to provide the optimum sealing performance while running totally submerged but also to withstand intermittent dry-running situations and still maintain a positive seal when the fluid returns to the seal area.
