The company's rotary cartridge seals ensures that hydropower plants maximise their renewable energy creation abilities by limiting the level of water leakage in turbines.

  • two sealing elements work back-to-back within a cartridge to flush water introduced between them
  • low maintenance – reducing the costs of installation
  • the company’s rotary cartridge seal prototypes are still running trouble free after 12 years of operation
  • the seals are designed for very low and controlled levels of leakage, reducing the risk of flood damage to plants
