|D O W N L O A D|
The present standard specification ASTM F1511-04 covers the mechanical end-face seals for the positive displacement and centrifugal shipboard pumps. It does not, however, address some types of the seals as follows - oil and lip seals, labyrinth or circumferential types of seals. The values stated within the document are in standard inch-pound units. The SI units have been provided for info only in parentheses. The Appendix S1 to this standard specification contains the special requirements for the United States Navy Shipboard Pump Applications. Within the present document, seals are classified by their type, class and grade.
The categories have been divided according to the application arrangement in the equipment in which thee seals are installed. Talking about the materials, the mechanical seals addressed in this standard publication, must be manufactured using the materials selected from the Tables 1-3 of this standard specification, with all parts being subject to review of the pressure/velocity, temperature and corrosion resistance. The publication will be useful for the crew members dealing with the ordering and installation of subject seals as it provides quite clear reference.
