Development and Application of Non-Contact Seal Assembly for High-Speed Shaft Ends
Non-contact seal assembly for high-speed shaft ends is introduced. Fluid dynamic calculations and analyses have been made with FLUENT Software on the flowing in the front sealed cavity, the mid labyrinth-sealed cavity and the outside windshield cavity of the seal assembly. The results through the tests are in conformity with those in simulation analyses.
