Our markets and sells the patented Superdeal® and Goodeal™ leaf type seals. They give an all-around performance with low maintenance in most rotary kiln systems.
The Superdeal® seal has applications for rotary kilns, dryers and coolers. Because of its low leakage characteristics, it is cost effective for most applications. Increased fuel efficiency, reduced off gas volumes and environmental compliance requirements are typical considerations for selecting this seal.
The Goodeal™ seal is utilized for less demanding conditions - where some air leakage is acceptable or actually desirable for process performance.
The Superdeal® consists of a dual layer of overlapping high strength spring steel leaves with ceramic fiber blankets between the layers. The Goodeal™ consists of a single layer of overlapping high strength spring steel leaves.
The overlapping leaves form a seal while allowing the kiln to rotate freely. There are many different ways and reasons to arrange a rotary seal. Both seals can be installed in a wide variety of configurations. The configuration on the left shows a standard radial seal configuration. Some other common configurations include:
- Radial seal with stand off wear ring
- Inward radial seal
- Radial seal with air cooling
- Double radial seal with purge gas
- Axial seal
- Inward axial seal
- Inverted axial seal
