Flowserve's GCX single-cartridge pump seal is designed to reduce lifecycle costs and provide high reliability for ANSI and DIN pumps. Built with durable metals to withstand corrosion, the GCX features an alloy C-276 bellows, 316 stainless steel components and flexible graphite foil secondary seals.

Standard operating limits for the product include pressures between 0 and 200 psig, temperatures between -40
