Designed for the fast-paced food- and chemical-processing markets, the PDX cartridge seal from Chicago Rawhide is a unitized kit or cartridge to be installed in specific positive-displacement-type process pumps. This multi-lip seal is engineered with a solid silicon-carbide sleeve that reduces heat and wear, for longer pump life. Its bi-directional annular units ensure positive sealing of both thick and thin fluids and allow pump reversing. It contains no moving O-rings, no faces to stick or wear and no springs to clog. Offering dry-running capability, it is available in many materials to suit varying applications. Typical application media include chocolate, corn syrup, wax and fuels.
