The Micro-Tec II website from Garlock Sealing Technologies describes the features of the Micro-Tec II technology, which include: an engineered unitizing ring which eliminates metal to metal contact; a microcellular filter which blocks out even the tiniest of particles; and a Cam-Lock system which reduces installation time and cost by allowing easy installation at the equipment.

Earl Rogalski, senior product manager for Garlock said: “Garlock is known throughout the world for developing premier sealing solutions that works properly the first time, no questions asked. Our development philosophy remains unchanged with the Micro-Tec II seal and the supporting website, offering superior technology that is easy to use and works the first time.”

Micro-Tec II bearing isolators from Garlock are available in standard sizes, ranging from 0.875 in to more than 11 in. The bearing is available in bronze or stainless steel construction. The Micro-Tec II meets NEMA MG 1-2003, conforms to API 610 and surpasses the IEEE 841-2001 test standards.

Applications for the Micro-Tec II include electric motors, pumps, food processing equipment, powder applications, fans and similarly configured applications.
