Shaft Seal for Abrasive Water Conditions
The Thordon TG100 is a new mechanical seal designed specifically for 86mm (3.375") to 305mm (12") shaft vessels operating in either clean or abrasive-laden waters including workboats, harbor tugs, offshore supply vessels, yachts, ferries, fishing trawlers and self-propelled dredgers.
Manufactured to the same exacting standards as our high performing range of Thordon Bearings, the TG100 seals use the highest quality, hard wearing silicon carbide faces and our proprietary elastomeric polymers to offer the best combination of strength/stiffness and flexibility/elasticity.
Unique Emergency Seal
A unique feature of the TG100 is the emergency seal that allows stand-alone operation. This not only ensures that you safely return to port but helps prevent permanent seal damage.
Maintenance-free Shaft Seals
The TG100 should require no periodic maintenance. A well-maintained seal should require no parts within a 5-year drydock interval, however an additional "water port" allows for cleaning/flushing of dirt and abrasives deposited in the bellows over time.
