• Operational abuse tolerant,


e.g. cavitation and vibration

• Dry running capability


Suction
• Single source pump & seal
responsibility

How the Wilfley Dynamic Seal


works:

• An air barrier (A) is established


during pump operation by
centrifugal forces generated at
the expeller.

• This air barrier successfully


isolates the pumped fluid from
the shaft.

• The DryLock IITM seal provides


positive sealing at pump startup
and shutdown
