Vulcan Mechanical Seal Range
Vulcan has the widest range of "Standard" Mechanical Seals available compared to any manufacturer in the world. We back this very extensive range with a guaranteed ex-stock holding that is accessible to our customers to view via our WebPortal. All seal types, in all sizes and materials, shown in our Mechanical Seal Brochures, are available ex-stock, if previously sold. In total that's over one million stock code combinations (with an exceeded 99.8% ex-stock target). We can also manufacture practically any special and will even stock them for you, to agreement, for repeat requirements.
All Vulcan seals are manufactured in-house to our own production drawings and designs. We have eliminated the faults common in some original and many copy designs through close attention to design and material improvements.
Most "Single Spring" seal companies buy in product or merely assemble components in-house. Previously no manufacturer made all their own parts and components. Vulcan Does!
We produce all our seals and practically everything for them. For example, all of our eight grades of TC and SIC hard-faced materials are made in-house from raw powder. We mould all of our elastomers and even make the moulds for the same.
This vertical integration allows us to absolutely Quality and Cost control all parts of the Vulcan seal. With our Can Do Philosophy this also enables us to produce many special designs of seals for our customers, with quantities, costs and lead times lower than our competitors, because we primarily do it all in-house.
Material quality is vital to the capability, performance and life of a seal. So Vulcan only specify and manufacture superior quality seal materials. We have heavily invested in even further developing Reaction and Sintered SIC and Nickel and Cobalt TC scintering processes, so that we can exceed previous Single Spring Seals norms. This focus on the best quality face materials is standard throughout the Vulcan seal range.
