New-Seal® Externally-Pressurized Porous (EPP) Media gas seals enable non-contact sealing for liquids, gases, fine powders, or slurries. Built on more than 25 years of experience with air bearing technology, New-Seal® by New Way® applies the same successful principles to provide a highly engineered, leak-free, low gas consumption, wear-free seal for rotating equipment.
Seals built on our EPP Media provide a robust solution with no routine maintenance and the ability to operate on air or process gases. The inherent permeability of graphite or silicon carbide restricts and dampens the flow of pressurized fluid, gas, liquid, steam, etc. The flow of fluid is further restricted by the gap itself creating hydrostatic pressure, forcing the surfaces apart, creating a non-contact barrier/seal which is impervious to anything at a lower pressure. In some applications, the seals can perform double duty, acting as both seals and bearings.
Serves as Seal and Bearing
Low Gas Consumption
No Dry Run on Start-Up
Simple to Retrofit
Ability to Operate on Process Gas
Easy to Use
No Routine Maintenance
Leveraging decades of success in rotating equipment with New Way’s Externally Pressurized Porous Media Technology, New-Seal® products are ideal for the toughest sealing challenges across a wide array of industries. The absence of contact and oil removes the burden of routine maintenance, allowing for increased operations time.
