Sentinel® Floating Brush Seal (FBS) for Longer MTBR and Greater Steam Savings.
Carbon seals, the traditional sealing method in process steam turbines, are weak and brittle and wear quickly – causing them to become ineffective within a short period of time. Enhance the performance of your process steam turbines by protecting the carbon rings with the Sentinel FBS from Inpro/Seal®.
The Sentinel FBS is comprised of densely packed and flexible metallic brushes that provide an extra layer of protection to slow down the natural wear of downstream carbon rings. The brush serves as the primary shaft seal while a carbon element provides face sealing in the turbine’s casing. A drop-in replacement for a standard carbon ring, the Sentinel FBS increases the mean time between repair (MTBR) to more than three times that with carbon seals.

Steam Turbine Bearing Isolator for Protection Against Steam Ingress and Lubrication Loss.
Process steam turbines can fail prematurely due to steam leakage into the bearing housing. To increase reliability throughout your operation, install genuine Inpro/Seal Steam Turbine Bearing Isolators. The Steam Turbine Bearing Isolator’s unique design will easily accommodate temperatures up to 1000°F (537°C) while utilizing a deflector rotor and VBXX® interface to permanently protect the bearings from steam leakage.
