Computational Modeling and Simulation of a New Energy-Saving Sealing Unit in Industrial Applications
This new type of magnetic energy-saving sealing system can reduce the leakage of lubrication oil pollution and media gases in general industrial machine applications including reciprocating machines, air compressors and refrigerating units. This article analyses the feasible and reliable function of this new magnetic energy-saving sealing system through computer aided modeling / simulation and prototype testing, and the results verified the reliable performance of this sealing system. The main features of this new sealing system include: better sealing performance to prevent the industrial machines from lubrication oil and gaseous leakage, energy-saving due to higher sealing functioning efficiency with less frictional work loss and reduced internal media leakage, cheaper in industrial production and manufacturing because of lower precision requirement to the surfaces of reciprocating components including pistons and shafts, more durable sealing function and longer sealing lifetime.
