It’s an exciting time at John Crane as we introduce the newest member of our Elastomer Bellows seal family—the T4111 Single-use Elastomer Bellows Cartridge Seal.
The T4111 is a revolutionary new single-use cartridge seal that simplifies the sealing process for applications using aqueous solutions, making it suitable for industries such as clean water and wastewater treatment, food and beverage, and mining and minerals processing. It is recommended for use on centrifugal and rotary pumps, and similar rotary shaft equipment.
The name was derived from the total cost of repair. When considering the expense of shipping, handling, and inventory management in many cases it is more economical to purchase a new seal than repair it.
Users will benefit from cost savings, simplified installation and reduced maintenance.
The T4111 cartridge seal bridges the gap between functionality and cost, making it a sensible option to replace certain component seals or upgrade from packing. It is a practical solution for small, lower-duty pumps that conform to ANSI and DIN standards.
Using proven sealing technologies and design features, T4111 reduces installation times by at least 50%, and reduces lifetime costs by up to 20 to 30% when compared to typical elastomer bellows component seals or traditional packing options. In addition, the cartridge design and material selections reduce installation costs, lower maintenance requirements and optimize equipment performance.
