International Paper in Prattville, Alabama needed a better solution for their Goulds JC slurry pump. This Goulds pump is stationed in the fiber line and is instrumental in the process of paper products. For this particular application, this pump moves a medium consistancy fluid in 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.
In 2013, a representative from Motion Industries, in Montgomery proposed Isomag magnetic bearing isolators to the mill for their Goulds JC pump. They were very happy with their decision; The Goulds pump has been running leak free and contamination free since then.
Isomag magnetic bearing seals 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.
