About the Liquidyne
How it works
The water lubricated lip seals run over a partially grooved bush placed over the pump shaft. The helical shape of the grooves and the peripheral velocity of the bush create water flow between the grooves and the lip seal. This flow and lubricant film is comparable to aquaplaning. The water constantly flows away from the high pressure side to the drain side of the seal where the pressure is lower. The Liquidyne uses water to lubricate, flush and cool the seal. If the pump water doesn’t contain large abrasive parts, the seal can be lubricated with the pump medium. If the pump water holds relatively large abrasive parts an external water system is used.
The picture above shows how you can follow the decrease and how the desirable maintenance can be planned.
The Condition Monitoring benefit results in the following advantages:
- Predicts remaining seal
- Optimises maintenance intervals
- Prevents sudden pump failure
- Low Cost of Ownership
