Impenatra® Seal

Impenatra® Seal

A unique, patented design in mechanical seals is available from Advance. The Impenatra seal is a radically new approach to solve many shaft sealing problems. When used with the Advance line of pumps, it isolates all metallic parts from contact with the fluid.

Alternately, corrosive chemicals require seals made of exotic alloys. The high prices and long lead times are objectionable. The Impenatra seal offers a solution to both problems.

WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT THE IMPENATRA

  • A proven, balanced design approach which eliminates hang up. 
  • Seal case is precision-molded of chemical-resistant thermoplastic. 
  • All metal surfaces, springs and shafts are isolated from fluid contact. 
  • Easily handles a wide range of chemical solutions including most acids, bases, and inorganics. 
  • Every seal is individually inspected to ensure consistent quality and is readily available.

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU

  • Unprecedented corrosion resistance protects from attack by contained fluid and from the surrounding environment.
  • Easy to install, field adjustment not required. 
  • Offers good versatility at an excellent price. 
  • Reliability, due to the simplicity of design and quality components.
