4 Major Reasons to Buy from CinchSeal
Whether you’re in food and beverage processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing or any industry that requires the ability to keep product in and contamination out, you’re looking for ways to save time and money. CinchSeal rotary shaft seals offer four solutions to your cost-saving challenges:
- Fast return on investment
- Elimination of material loss during processing
- Reduced downtime
- Elimination of shaft wear
CinchSeal rotary shaft seals mark a revolutionary advancement in seal technology. Other sealing methods just don’t hold up. Over time, they cause damage to the shaft. They don’t hold well under high pressure. They require frequent maintenance and replacement. In short, they allow leakage and leakage costs.
Here is how CinchSeal seals are different:
- They eliminate shaft wear and minimize repairs
- Most seals are designed to grab the shaft in order to stop leakage, so they cause friction damage. CinchSeal rotary shaft seals feature a silicone elastomer that moves with the shaft, thus preventing friction and reducing maintenance and replacement costs.
- Eliminating damage to the shaft means less chance of leakage. This benefit is enhanced by a large shaft/seal interface surface that further reduces the possibility of leakage.
- CinchSeal seals stop material loss and cuts costs
How much of your product and its components winds up wasted because of leaky seals? This problem isn’t only a consequence of damage to the shaft because of friction with a stationary seal. It’s also the result of poor performance under high pressure and deterioration from operation in harsh environments.
CinchSeal rotary shaft seals provide polished stainless steel-plate and PTFE rotor cups that contribute to preventing leaks. They hold against high pressure because they use air purging to push the rotors against the stator. The purging keeps higher pressure inside the seal, rather than outside.
Reducing downtime improves production
Now think about the downtime you have to put up with for shaft and seal repair or replacement, all because your seals don’t have the features CinchSeal rotary shaft seals offer. CinchSeal seals eliminate leakage and damage to the shaft. But there’s more to it than that.
Nothing lasts forever, and CinchSeal seals are no exception. But they last a lot longer, and they’re easier to fix. Consider the “split” design of some CinchSeal products. It makes installation and conversion simple. You don’t even need to bring in outside installers — your production goes up as your downtime goes down.
Rapid ROI saves money
All the above add up to an impressive ROI.
Think about it. Frequent repair and replacement, material waste from leakage, cleanup from contamination—they all have an impact on your return on investment. It takes longer to get your money back and start to make a profit.
An alternative seal might be cheaper up front, but the back-end costs can be substantial. Going with a seal that has been engineered to last and perform is the better business decision.
