FOR LIP TYPE SEALS WITH SEAL REVITALISER
An effective additive for Stern Tubes and Bow Thrusters can also be used in CPPs, Rudder Shafts and Rudder Machines
The MPS 896 Special Mix paste must be injected in its concentrated form directly to the aft seal chamberss. It is necessary to have a suitable pump for application. Lindemann can supply a high pressure pump, which suits the 20 kg drum, for easy application. The pump can later be used for other purposes.Read more about the pump
MPS 896 Special Mix contains a very high amount of Teflon, which due to friction will embed the wear surfaces during operation, repairing minor defects in the contact surfaces between shaft and seal. This will prolong the life time of the seals.
In addition to high concentration of PTFE, MPS 896 Special Mix contains another additive, which gives the paste different structure and makes it cling to the rotating shaft with a firm grip.
The „firm grip“ on the shaft ensures that the higher level of PTFE is interlocked right in front of any given slip between the seal and the shaft, offering a tougher sealing effect that will withstand greater forces from the sea.
The paste’s seal revitalizing additive preserves or restores flexibility of the rubber seals without swelling.
