New-SealTM - a "New Way" of Sealing....

                ....using PROVEN externally-pressurized Gas Bearing Technology

Face and Circumferential Seals


New-SealTM externally-pressurized, porous media gas face seals enable non-contact shaft sealing. New-SealTM shaft seals can be used for sealing liquids, gases, fine powders, or slurries, with an easy path to retrofit. New-SealTM face seals can be designed to serve as a thrust bearing and a seal, simultaneously.  A variety of input gases in addition to air can be used – including process gas. 


New-SealTM externally-pressurized, porous media gas circumferential seals can provide shaft sealing when thermal growth scenarios are minimal.  


New-SealTM circumferential seals can be designed to serve as a radial bearing and a seal.  O-rings, mounted on the outside of the housing, position and support the bearing-seal, allowing it to self-align. 


Porous media used is made from familiar materials, such as graphite, carbon or silicon carbide that have proven success in rotating equipment for decades.


Key technology benefits associated with New-SealTM Gas Seals include

  • No wear (frictionless)
  • Low Gas consumption
  • No dry running at start-up; zero friction starts
  • Requires similar real estate as conventional seals – retrofit applications possible
  • Familiar mounting geometries
  • Lower maintenance than conventional gas seals
  • Can serve as bearing and seal in certain situations
  • Long life
  • High speeds without heat
  • Potential to run on process gas
  • Less ancillary support equipment compared to conventional seals
  • No oil
  • Robust
  • Easy to use
