What Dual and Tandem Mechanical Seal Systems Users Should Look for in Mechanical Seal Barrier Fluids

Mechanical seal barrier fluids are lubricants specially formulated to provide safety and reliability in mechanical seals used in hazardous chemical operations. For over fifty years, Halocarbon Mechanical Seal Barrier Fluids remain at the forefront of the petroleum, natural gas, and chemical industries, lubricating and cooling the seal faces in rotary pumps, mixers, and agitators. Halocarbon’s market-leading, chemically inert fluids provide users with the ideal formulation to handle environmentally harmful solutions in a safe, dependable manner. Below are three integral attributes to look for in high-performance mechanical seal oils and barrier fluids.

Safety & Reliability

Halocarbon mechanical seal barrier fluids use cutting-edge fluorochemistry to create intrinsically safe, non-flammable and non-reactive seal fluids. Considering potential risk factors that negatively affect the seals, fluorinated barrier fluids mitigate the chance of seal failures that could otherwise lead to the exposure of harmful chemicals and liquids to workers or the environment. High thermal stability, cryogenic low temperature fluidity and no sludge formation are critical characteristics found in Halocarbon mechanical seal fluids to ensure inertness, safety, and reliability across a wide range of systems and environments.

Versatile Performance Portfolio

When choosing mechanical seal barrier fluids, it’s essential to understand the range of versatility necessary for long-lasting reliability and outstanding performance. A broad selection of high velocity, low velocity, and mechanical seal life extension fluids provide performance to achieve maximum seal life. Halocarbon mechanical seal barrier fluids with excellent sealing and lubricating properties can be utilized in both pressurized and unpressurized seal systems. Additionally, excellent compatibility with most metals, plastics, and elastomers for an array of construction applications.

Lewis Acid Resistance

For safety and performance, Halocarbon mechanical seal barrier fluids are formulated to be non-reactive to lewis acids. Lewis acids, such as aluminum trichloride, iron or zinc chlorides, iron fluoride, and boron trifluoride, pose a threat to the reliability, performance, and dependability of conventional hydrocarbon- or glycol-based mechanical seal barrier fluids. Fluids manufactured with Halocarbon PCTFE technology, Halocarbon Mechanical Seal Barrier Fluids are specially designed to create a less complex and more cost-efficient chemical composition than traditional PFPE (perfluoropolyether)-based fluids. Cutting-edge PCTFE chemistry enables the formulation of oxygen safe lubricants that are also less susceptible to attack by Lewis acids, 

Halocarbon is dedicated to developing the highest performing and most reliable mechanical seal barrier fluids to provide hazardous chemical operations with safe and dependable handling and processing of dangerous materials.
