Coupled with this, AxFlow is running a mechanical seal service and repair operation complete with facilities for cleaning, lapping, re-assembly and shaft mounting using laser alignment technology.

Tony Peters, Axflow managing director said: “AxFlow cartridge seals have all the components pre-mounted on a shaft sleeve, making installation and removal simple tasks. We can build the cartridge unit to match the application for the pump and its operating conditions. Having seen this side of the business growing steadily, through pump repair and servicing, we are now offering mechanical seals as a mainstream activity.”
