Increase the availability of your equipment – with EagleBurgmann HR seals
The operating conditions for dredger pumps are extraordinary harsh and demanding, particularly with respect to the pumped medium. This is extremely abrasive and high in solids with particle sizes from just a few micrometers up to 200 mm (7.87"), placing massive stresses on the pump and its shaft seal.
Compression packings or lip seals are often used in typical dredger pumps to seal the rotating shaft from the housing. The service life of these seals is very limited, often as short as just 3 months. Replacing worn or damaged seals is a technically very demanding task; it is also time-consuming and correspondingly expensive.
The EagleBurgmann HR series have it all, both economically and technically: longer service life, longer MTBF interval and fast ROI.
