Product Information

We answer operators’ toughest challenges, improving seal and pump reliability, preventing unplanned downtime and reducing operating costs across a broad range of process industries, including:

John Crane’s unique, engineered, non-contacting Upstream Pumping face technology borrows from gas seal designs to deliver a breakthrough in liquid sealing technology. This allows operators to:

  • Improve mechanical seal life
  • Increase mean time between repair (MTBR)
  • Reduce seal leakage to atmosphere when compared to a pressurized dual seal
  • Allow a clean inboard face fluid interface, even with dirty product
  • Deliver a simple support system ensuring face lubrication without the cost of a pressurized barrier system
  • Prevent solid build-up with slurries, scaling fluids or solids in suspension
  • Eliminate seal face flush to dissipate seal heat, reducing water usage
  • Address low water supply pressure challenges
  • Reduce power consumption and heat generation due to non-contacting technology
