|Publication Date:||1 May 2009|
|ICS Code (Piping systems):||47.020.30|
This specification covers mechanical end-face seals for centrifugal and positive displacement pumps for shipboard use.
The following types of seals are not included in this specification: lip seals, oil seals, circumferential seals, or labyrinth seals.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. A companion hard metric standard is in the process of preparation.
Special requirements for U.S. Navy Shipboard Pump Applications are included in Supplement S1.
