Some types of machinery are cumbersome to maintain. Large shafts, heavy components, and immovable drivers are some of these concerns.
Often, a typical mechanical seal is impractical to use by the nature of it’s installation mechanical seals requirements. lIn these cases it is frequently beneficial to use a Split Seal.
In a Split Seal, all components are literally cut or split in half and they are assembled onto the equipment without removal or disassembly of the major equipment components.

Since almost all seals utilize the process liquid or gas to lubricate the seal faces, they are designed to leak. Process liquids and gases containing hazardous vapors, dangerous toxic chemicals or flammable petroleum must not be allowed to leak into the atmosphere or onto the ground. In these applications a second “containment” seal is placed after the primary seal along the pump shaft. The space in between these two seals is filled with a neutral or compatible liquid or gas (generally nitrogen)
