Ahlstrom 2 LRS Pump is More Reliable With Isomag Bearing Isolators

May 15, 2018

The Sulzer 2 LRS is multi-stage liquor pump and is an extremely critical pump in the pulp mill process. Many mills have multiple Ahlstrom 2 LRS pumps in service, but only have one spare unit, like our customer International Paper in Cantonment, Florida. This means having the right choice in bearing protection is a large factor in helping these pumps reach their planned maintenance cycles so the mill doesn't feel the pain of downtime. Isomag bearing isolators are the seals chosen by the maintenance team to make sure the MTBF is long. 

What are the features of Isomag bearing isolators and why are they so beneficial to your Ahlstrom 2 LRS?  

 

The benefits of an Isomag bearing isolator are:

  • Magnetic Closing Force – “Magnetic energy is used to create a closing force keeping the seal faces in positive contact.”

  • Seals in all positions: horizontal, vertical, angled, rock and roll

  • Seals in all types of bearing lubrication: splash, flooded, forced, oil mist

  • Seals during stand-by

  • Reduces stray mist from oil mist systems

  • Enables use of closed-loop oil mist systems

  • Easily installed by hand

  • Removable without damage to the isolator or equipment

  • Face seal that rotates with the shaft

Your Ahlstrom 2 LRS will benefit from Isomag bearing isolators by providing a positive seal that prevents leakage, protects against the ingress of internal contamination, and provides years of reliable service. As the pioneers in the magnetic bearing isolator market, Isomag continues to bring innovation and technology in an effort to extend rotating equipment life.
