AxFlow says its service centre in Huddersfield now holds a wide range of single spring and cartridge mechanical seals in stock for immediate delivery. In addition the company is also running an extensive mechanical seal service and repair operation with facilities for cleaning, lapping, re-assembly and shaft mounting using laser alignment technology.
AxFlow managing director Tony Peters reports an increasing number of its customers are now taking advantage of the company's facilities for replacing existing sealing arrangements with AxFlow"s own single spring and cartridge seals when having their pumps serviced: "AxFlow cartridge seals have all the components pre-mounted on a shaft sleeve, making installation and removal simple tasks.” Peters added: “We can build the cartridge unit to match the application for the pump and its operating conditions. Having seen this side of the business growing steadily, through pump repair and servicing, we are now offering mechanical seals as a mainstream activity.”
