A mechanical seal is a device that used to reduce leakage containing pressure or ignoring contamination. Mechanical seal is the device used in centrifugal Pumps, Mixers, Agitators and Compressors to arrest or reduce the leakage. The mechanical seal standard API 682 provides the design guidelines for the seals which are fits below 110mm shaft diameter and 4.2 N/mm2 seal chamber pressure. Any seal more than these parameters required special engineering or guidelines needs from technical service. The main aim is to design the mechanical seal for more than 110mm shaft diameter and more than 4.2 N/mm2 pressure. Since the basic seal components are mostly standardized and already tested than the seal gland connections are seems to be critical for large shaft diameter and high or heavy pressure applications. Hence the stress and deflection of the mechanical seal gland is analyzed based on barrier pressure and seal chamber pressure with the help of Inventor and another critical area is the seal drive arrangements.
