Products & Services
Every item of rotating plant and equipment - from a lawn sprinkler to a hot steel rolling mill or hydroelectric power scheme - relies on rotary sealing systems to keep it working efficiently.
The four main points to consider are...
- Bearing protection
- Lubricant retenion
- Exclusion of contaminants
- Minimising the leakage of fluid media.
James Walker caters for these needs at every industrial level with five complete families of seals, and a patented installation technique that avoids costly dismantling.
Klick-Fix® - Our Sequentially Deployable Sealing System
An alternative to mechanical seals and compression packings. A simple, highly cost-effective solution that is easy to fit, KlickFix can be refurbished on-site in a matter of minutes. Low friction PTFE lips are stored within the cartridge body until required and then can be activated in a matter of seconds without any need for equipment strip-down.
Bi-O-Lion® has been developed as part of an extensive compatibility testing programme designed to provide a clear understanding of the effect on seals and components of switching to EAL products.
Through this programme James Walker has explored the suitability of a vast range of elastomer formulations against more than 30 major EAL products currently in use.More Info
Blade root seals
The slow oscillating blade roots of Kaplan turbines used in hydropower generation present particular maintenance problems.
Our seals have been specifically designed, developed and proven for their long operational life and ease of replacement in the confined working environment, thus cutting turbine downtime to the minimum.
A cartridge seal from James Walker will provide the total solution to your rotary shaft sealing problems - particularly where standard methods and products are unlikely to succeed.
Our service is based on an intimate knowledge of your industry and its fluid sealing requirements.
The cartridge seal we provide to solve your problem will be produced in one of three ways:
- Custom designed and manufactured specifically to meet your operational parameters, or
- Based on a standard design and assembled from modular components, or
- A highly-engineered standard unit that we know will meet your demands.
