Agitators primarily find application in the food and pharmaceutical industries, as well as in the chemical sector. Agitators are usually closed off by compression packings or mechanical seals. Special seal solutions are needed if highly viscous media generate large radial deflections of the shaft, or when the temperatures in the seal area are high. Espey carbon floating ring seals from EagleBurgmann have been designed to cope with large radial shaft deflections, endless axial movements in implementations without bearings, and also for temperatures well above 500 °C (932 °F) (without additional cooling facilities). They meet a large number of requirements, such as compatibility with foods and robustness, and have been used for years in numerous applications.
