Various options are developed to make Supreme seals ‘green and lean’. The Supreme Ventus & Supreme Athmos guarantee zero oil emissions, while the innovative HML fusion layer significantly increases the lifetime of a maritime liner.

The water-lubricated Liquidyne pump shaft seals offer a condition monitoring function. This makes the seal lifetime predictable, which enables enhanced control of the pumping process, avoids sudden pump failures, and increases the system’s MTBM.
In the maritime market, Liquidyne seals are applied on a various applications, such as jet water and dredging pumps.

The seals are proven, highly reliable sealing solutions for 24/7 dredge operations. They are designed to maintain vessel operations, as well as enhance performance and reliability.
Environment-friendly, water-lubricated seals
