A demanding industry and here at Vulcan Seals we appreciate the challenges this volatile marine environment can inflict upon machinery within vessels, either out at sea, or in the docks undergoing repair and vital maintenance.
Vulcan Seals have a long-established range of direct replacement Mechanical Seal designs to suit all types of pumps and compressors associated with the marine and shipping industries. In all cases, the Vulcan Seals will resemble the original parts, while providing improved performance and quality benefits from our design and manufacturing policies. Vulcan seals fit directly into the original equipment without modification to either the pump, or the installation procedure.
