How to deal with a leaking Mechanical Seal? The Mechanical Seals was probably not the right one. In certain situations where Mechanical Seals have failed we would recommend using the premium seal created by Tamar Seals that solve the failures of Mechanical Seals.
The Tamar seal is not like any other mechanical seal. There are no sealing faces or springs and nothing is breakable within the cartridge. The Tamar shaft sealing technology combines all of the benefits of the conventional sealing methods to create a synergetic solution that contains eight layers of protection against leakage. The result is Zero leakage even under extreme conditions of dry running, slurry and extreme run-outs. Kemtron is a distributor of Tamar Seals. For further information, please visit their website here.
