The Working Group Mechanical Seals is currently editing and revising the first edition of EHEDG Guideline Doc. 25 on "Design of Mechanical Seals for hygienic and aseptic applications (Description, Design and Layout)" to bring it up to date.
The kick-off meeting was held on 3 February 2016 in Amsterdam. This guideline compares the design aspects of different mechanical seals with respect to ease of cleaning, microbial impermeability, sterilisability or pasteurisability. The work on this draft is in an advanced stage and subject to final discussion and consolidation by the Working Group.
EHEDG members who like to contribute to the good work by their know-how on such equipment are welcome to share in the expert team, especially if in a position to provide input from a user's view point. If you like to offer your help, please contact the chairs
