SMS equipment 4.0 function and importance of smart mechanical seals

SMS has over 60 years of experience in the production and application of equiment for demanding thermal separation tasks. Our solutions are characterised by a relentless pursuit of excellence and innovation, offering versatility in orientation, shape and specialised rotor designs. 

An essential component of our equipment is the mechanical seal for the shaft feedthrough. In vacuumoperated processes like thin film evaporation or drying, sealing the rotor shaft with a mechanical seal is essential to prevent air intake. Due to the importance of this component, we have applied our expertise to the development of an innovative mechanical seal for a variety of industrial applications. Monitoring offers vital data for predictive maintenance, enabling quick decisions.

The advantages of the SMS mechanical seal

Thanks to our continuous technological advancements and successful cooperation with our competent partner Metax Kupplungs- und Dichtungstechnik, we have developed a mechanical seal that meets the high requirements of modern industrial plants.
