The Goulds 3796 SP is a self priming pump is often found in paper mills, chemical plants, and oil refineries all around the world. The Goulds 3796 self priming pump has superior solids handling and provides trouble free operation that greatly reduces clogging and downtime.
International Paper in Campti, Louisiana, was looking for a better solution for the pump's bearing housing. The factory installed double lip seals could not meet the maintenance standard for International paper. Lip seals only lasted 6-8 months before they broke down. So International Paper turned to Isomag to provide bearing isolators to meet their maintenance life cycle goals.
Isomag magnetic bearing isolators are a positive seal and will hold oil in, and keep the external contaminates out of the bearing housing. International Paper has found Isomag magnetic face isolators to be their best solution for maintaining their maintenance lifetime goals.
