Chesterton Introduces Modular Cartridge Seals Built on the AXIUS™ Platform for Increased Flexibility and Control

New Seals Provide In-Field Scalability for a Wide Range of Sealing Applications

A.W. Chesterton Company launches new single and double cartridge seals built on its new AXIUS™ modular seal platform. These modular seals enable customers to make quick seal face and feature changes around a standard seal base to meet varying applications quickly and economically.

The first mechanical seals offered on the AXIUS platform are:

  • Chesterton 1810 Heavy Duty Modular Single Cartridge Seal – A reliable, plant-wide seal that has performance and reliability enhancing add-on capabilities. The 1810 has environmental control options such as multi-port flushing and quench & drain.
  • Chesterton 2810 Heavy Duty Modular Double Cartridge Seal – The 2810 delivers advanced emissions control and safety. It features a “Diffuser Sleeve,” an optimized barrier-buffer channel which improves fluid flow to and from the seal’s support system and enhances temperature regulation to extend seal face life. This feature was developed with extensive research using state of art technologies including CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and FEA (Finite Element Analysis) 

“These modular seals represent a whole new level of flexibility for customers to act quickly in agile and fast-changing environments,” says Thiru Veeraraghavan, Vice President of Engineering and Innovation. “They are suited for plant-wide use and have the flexibility to be configured for increasingly demanding conditions providing greater reliability and value to all seal users.”                     

Serving the industrial world for over 135 years, the A.W. Chesterton Company has developed a number of game-changing sealing solutions, including the first commercial split seal. The 1810 and 2810 are the first seals to be offered on the new AXIUS modular platform, with more capabilities and other seals to be offered in the near future.
