Garlock Introduces Revolutionary New Sealing Technology

Share Article

This patent-pending system replaces mechanical seals in virtually any industrial pumping application; it’s especially suited to hostile, abrasive environments, handles system upsets with ease and eliminates the risk of catastrophic failure.

Garlock Sealing Technologies, a leader in fluid sealing technology for more than 100 years, has developed a completely new sealing solution –the leak-free, no-dilution HYDRA-JUST™ Sealing System. This patent-pending system replaces mechanical seals in virtually any industrial pumping application; it’s especially suited to hostile, abrasive environments and eliminates the risk of catastrophic failure.

“Success in this business is all about solving problems, and Garlock has created a solution that’s better than packing or mechanical seals,” says Michael Faulkner, Senior Product Manager for Garlock. “Early response has been fantastic: we’ve delivered a truly leak-free rotary seal with unmatched abrasion and chemical resistance – and incredible water efficiency.”

HYDRA-JUST is more robust than mechanical seals, and it handles system upsets with ease. It also gives customers an indication when it starts to fail – so customers can keep the system going until it’s convenient for them to change the seal. This means they can maximize their uptime, and schedule maintenance around their production needs, rather than re-scheduling production around sealing failures.

Since the technology is brand new, Garlock is holding seminars to help customers understand the science behind the product – and to point out its extraordinary benefits over mechanical seals.

These benefits include:

No risk of catastrophic failure

Outage-to-outage service in most industrial pumping applications

Optimal operation in hostile environments and abrasive conditions (including high-pressure/low-flow conditions)

Significantly reduced water consumption with cool, dry operation and no dilution

Easy installation and operation –no special equipment required to use or install

Fast installation – less than an hour (compared to at least 2 ½ to 3 hours for a mechanical seal)

No start-up adjustments

Lower prices than mechanical seals

Customers can purchase the new HYDRA-JUST seals through an authorized Garlock distributor or visit and go to “Representative Locator” to contact a local Garlock representative.
