Shaft Seal Dust & Slurry Testing

Slurry Testing

This is a bolt-on option to our hot oil seal test machines. It allows you to introduce media to the excluding features of the seal. Mixtures of ISO 12103-1 test dust with bentonite clay and water are standard but it is possible to run any media such as belt dust, volcanic ash or water.

The sump and dust chamber are monitored daily for ingress of debris or failure of the seal. Comparison testing of seal designs is common with this type of test.
