Pump Seals

For rotary or linear dynamic sealing applications

Pump seals examples

As technology advances, the requirements it places on today’s pump manufacturers become more and more challenging. Today’s pumps must operate more efficiently in ever more challenging conditions.  Lower friction, higher pressures, wider temperature range, faster speeds; all while pumping a wider range of fluids which are more corrosive, less stable and, in many cases, offer much less lubricating effect.

Here at American High Performance Seals, we are working with pump manufacturers that are meeting these challenges head on and helping them to meet their performance goals.

These pumps go in wide range of markets:
  • Chemical
  • Nuclear
  • Hydraulic
  • Dispensing
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Oilfield
  • Agricultural
  • Food
  • Medical
  • Automotive
  • Machine tools
  • Molding
Examples of pump types sealed:
  • Piston pumps
  • Gear pumps
  • Hydraulic ram
  • Mud pumps
  • Plunger pumps
  • Georotors
  • Viscous drag
  • Fuel pumps
  • Multiplex pumps
  • Lobe pumps
  • HPLC pumps
  • Cryogenic pumps
Examples of media successfully sealed:
  • Hydraulic oil
  • Adhesives and sealants
  • Coolants
  • Drinking water
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • LNG
  • PAG compressor oils
  • Fertilizers
  • Soaps & detergents
  • Food and beverage
  • Fuel oils
  • Drilling muds
  • Wastewater
  • Solvents
  • Biotech fluids

With a wide range of standard materials, and specially developed compounds  our engineers have a solid platform from which to design the optimum seal for your specific needs. All designs are reviewed by an engineer with over 25 years of experience in the pump industry, and each design can be discussed directly with the seal engineer.
