of the Incredible Panaceal
Panaceal is a true slurry mechanical seal designed and manufactured
for rough slurry services. The Panaceal also performs well in less severe
slurry services such as the chemical and municipal applications.

The Panaceal is
comprised of components that are available in a wide array of materials
and designs to meet a broad spectrum of abrasive slurry and chemical
The metal components that make up the seal are available in materials
that include stainless steel, high chrome iron, and CD4. The metal components
can also be treated with ceramic coatings to further enhance wear and
The Seal Sleeve is the driving influence for the rotating components
of the seal and is available in various designs to lock the sleeve to
the shaft or the shaft sleeve. These designs also allow for varying
lengths and clearances inside the frames of different pump designs.
The Retainer holds a stationary face in a fixed position with an anti-rotation
pin, or by shrink fitting the seal face into the retainer. The retainer
is fixed to the pump casing via an adaptor or is replaced with a seal
chamber in some applications.
The Rotary face can be bonded in a chemical resistant elastomeric cup
or shrink fitted into the rotary body.
The Rotary Body holds the rotary face as well as the cone spring. The
Cone Spring is a metal spring that is molded inside one of many different
elastomers. While the cone spring provides the closing forces that keep
the sealing faces from separating, it also acts as an o-ring that seals
against the seal sleeve and the rotary body.
