Product description

MTM430 is surely the more resistant propeller shaft mechanical seal on the market today. The MTM430, in comparison with all the existing propeller shaft mechanical seals, is the first of its kind in the world to be equipped with a double series of springs. This allows this propeller shaft seal to better compensate for angular and radial misalignments. Moreover, MTM430 springs together with a double system of o-rings give rise to what Microtem has named DEDaS® (Double Elastic Damping System), that is an elastic damping system able to make the MTM430 resistant to 60 g shock and to 60 mm/s (RMS) of vibration. Inside of it, in the rotating part, there is another international recognised innovation: the pumping ring. This technology, newly introduced in the propeller shaft seals, ensures that the cooling fluid (usually water) is distributed to a greater and better extent on the sliding faces, increasing the heat dissipation and thus reducing consumption. All this allows MTM430 to achieve performance over 60.000 hours of operation before maintenance.

Of equal importance is the design of Microtem’s MTM430 mechanical propeller shaft seal, as its compact size allows the seal to be one of the axially smaller solutions in the world. Thanks to the “Repair Kit” in two halves the maintencance can be caried out directly on the mechanical seal without decoupling the shaft from the coupling. Additionaly, the MTM430 together with the hydraulic barrier system (Watershield) allows to carry out maintenance with the boat in the water. This propeller shaft seal is designed for shafts with diameter 50 mm to 800 mm, and it is certified by RINA.

There are different possible material configurations for many necessities, and an important detail of MTM403 is that the only product to be certified, as standard, for fire resistance. The stationary flange can be designed with a maximum of 6 radial holes that allow to connect: one or more auxiliary cooling lines for the bearing, a pressure gauge, a temperature gauge, a flow gauge or a axial/radial vibration sensor. Suitable for all applications, it is the best product for mega yachts, passenger and military vessels.
