Domtar Paper in Bennettsville, South Carolina needed a better solution for their Worthington GR gear pump. This Worthington GR pump is instrumental in the process of making high end paper products. For this particular application, this high viscosity, high pressure vacuum pump was on the coating line process which produces the specialty higher gloss magazine stock. The problem they were having was both egress of bearing lubrication and ingress of contamination into the bearing housing.
When the mill specified Isomag magnetic bearing seals for their Worthington GR pump in 2013, they were very happy with their decision. The Worthington GR gear pump has been running leak free and contamination free since then.
Isomag magnetic bearing isolators are a positive seal that wont damage the shafts of your pump, and work in horizontal or vertical up or down positions. Isomag bearing isolators also work perfectly in grease lubrication environments.
