Products GlandGuard ProSpec Technologies protection pumps seal area shaft guards

ProSpec Technologies has introduced GlandGuard seal area shaft guards, designed to protect a pump shaft between the casing and the bearing housing.

The design mounts on the mechanical seal gland rather than the pump housing to guard against physical contact with the rotating exposed shaft as well as offering a significant degree of splash protection.

Traditional guarding of this area of the pump is varied and often questionable, the company says, if it exists at all. The seal area shaft guards are said to be quick to install and easily field modified to suit a variety of pump and seal designs.

The unit installs on the mechanical seal gland and allows full access to gland flush, drain, vent and quench connections for single, double, cartridge and non-cartridge seal designs with no pump disassembly required.

Breakaway tabs and adjustable slotted mounts are also said to allow for easy field fitting to accommodate various pump and seal configurations.
