A Better Alternative To Labyrinth Seals
Eaton's Centurion Improved Brush Seals are very high tip speed, high temperature seals, usually applied in the secondary and tertiary flow paths in gas turbine engines, capable of surface speeds up to 1,100 f/s (feet per second) and withstanding temperatures up to 1,200°F (648°C). As a replacement for labyrinth leals, brush seals evidence 20% to 40% less leakage while their bristles are in optimal condition. In addition, Centurion Improved Brush Seals weigh far less than labyrinth seals and take less axial cavity space.
Eaton's Patented Design Increases Bristle Life
Eaton's patented design holds the bristle pack in place, preventing deformation and stiffening, common problems affecting the longevity of the traditional brush seal. This design allows the seal to last longer at an optimal sealing performance than ordinary brush seals.
