A Zero Emission Mechanical Seal with Integral Micro Heat Exchanger

Grants and Contracts Details


The objective of the LSDIUK/ExxonMobil proposed project is to attract a mechanical seal OEM to the commercialization team (which now consists of LSU, UK and Mezzosystems) by successfully demonstrating the reliability and performance of the mechanical seal at a major end-user facility (ExxonMobil). This industrial application with a light hydrocarbon as the process (sealed) fluid will be ideal to demonstrate: 1) heat tolerance; 2) long term reliability; 3) energy impact; 4) emdronmental impact and 5) economic impact. The total proposed project budget is $ ~403;405 Over64% of which is cost-share by the partnering institutions.
