An Isomag is a sliding face bearing isolator where the closure means utilizes magnetic force, rather than axial face loading by springs or bellows. This design technology, coupled with their unique face combination, sets a standard ahead of other bearing protection devices. Isomags hermetically seal the shaft in all low pressure centrifugal applications.
Specific advantage is achieved where minimum space is available. When the equipment is operating or on standby, there is no aspiration of air or liquid across the faces. Isomags are easy to install, are tolerant of misalignment, and perform equally well in dry running or liquid lubricated environments.
