John Crane introduces the AURA 220 Gas Seal representing the next-generation of advanced gas seal technology and the first to be unveiled under the brand name AURA.
The new technology uses a common global design and patented polymeric sealing device with Active Deflection Control to help customers reduce operating and transaction costs. Additionally, the performance range of the seal has been expanded, improving its performance when operating in high pressure and temperature environments. The AURA 220 Gas Seal operates in a pressure range up to 220 bar and a temperature range up to 200°C.
Several additional technology advances leading to reduced leakage help to cut the total cost of ownership for customers. The enhanced rotor design extends scheduled maintenance periods and lowers costs. Optional bi-directional capability reduces spare inventory requirements.
Localised technical expertise from – more than 230 sales and service facilities across 50 countries – is also easily available. Technical support and troubleshooting from service and reliability engineers is available through the global service network on the widest range of applications in the industry. In addition, the service network has broad capabilities around power transmission couplings, hydrodynamic bearings, filtration and seal support systems.
