Design type:

There are two types of mechanical face seals.

  1. FO type

The most common design of Mechanical Face Seals is the FO design, also known as the ‘O’Ring design, where the’ O’Ring serves as a secondary sealing element. FO type mechanical face seals consist of two identical metallic sealing rings to seal each other on wrapped seal faces.

2. FT type
