A uniquely designed system which specifically supports the tidal power sector, where a void space hybrid shaft seal is installed, to directly avoid the risks associated with a hostile operating environment. With in-built design features and support componentry the system optimises continued safe operation.
This is a pump regulated system that manages the fluid collection and storage from the seal void space thus maintaining environmental integrity and supporting extended Mean Time Betweem Maintenance [MTBM] timescales and operator demands.
A valuable support mechanism which enables cost avoidance in terms of environmental compliance and extended maintenance intervals. Application/Options:
Designed specifically for tidal power turbines
Other rotating equipment using a void space seal deployment
