Dryer shaft seals

March 1, 2008


Woodex’s MECO custom-engineered shaft seals reduce vacuum dryer cycle times by effectively holding the vacuum. The seals accommodate both thermal growth and run-out motion of the shaft, as well as changes in process pressure during the drying cycle. Their split design allows for quick retrofits.
