Abbey Seals supply a substantial range of cost effective and reliable water pump seals and replacement seals, that are commonly utilised in high volume commercial, domestic and industrial water systems. These hydraulic seal types generally serve applications such as swimming pools, spa pools, shower pumps, central heating systems, irrigation and light fluid duties. Seal performance and life is frequently compromised by the nature of these applications and the fact that water is a poor lubricator of seal faces. As such, our standard stock product incorporates superior seal face materials. That’s our ethos; focusing upon seal performance.
The Abbey Seals Range of Bi-directional mechanical seals offer proven seal design and wave spring technology, in a range of material combinations, enhanced by superior design features, all at very competitive pricing. TYPE 8DIN and 24 DIN SHORT/LONG O-RING Stationaries: Common O-Ring mounted stationaries to suit EURO-DIN housing sizes, designed to provide a wide range of compatibility with Abbey Seals rotary seal types. Type 8DIN/24DIN LONG have a slot to accommodate an anti-rotation pin which is recommended particularly for larger shaft sizes and / or more viscous media. Type 8DIN/24 DIN SHORT is a standard short EURO-DIN stationaries with no pin slot. We also have a range of Boot Stationaries for metric and imperial housings.
Parallel Spring Diaphragm Type Seals are highly proficient and widely utilised, covering all standard pump shaft, working length and housing size ranges.

The Conical Spring ‘O’-Ring Mounted Type Seals offered by Abbey Seals are extremely popular seals. These robust, technically proficient seals are designed to suit DIN and common, standard housing dimensions. The proven efficient design and wide choice of Conical Mechanical ‘O’-Ring Seals and face materials enable these seals to be utilised in a large variety of applications. These conical seals are suited for pumps, mixers, agitators, compressors, and other rotary shaft equipment.
We refer to this family of Type A1 – A5 seals as the Balanced Diaphragm Seals Ax range. The mechanical drive mechanism of the Ax range incorporates a patented design. This innovative solution eliminates the problem of seal failure, due to excessive wear by the thin metal drive components cutting a groove into the retainer, common to competitors’ seals. The drive area has been increased by over 250%, to greatly reduce the contact drive pressure and consequent wear. As a result, the drive ring does not cut nor groove into the seal head retainer. The unique seal head design also retains the drive ring by a locking mechanism. This results in security and ease of assembly, due to the unitised design of the entire seal head assembly.
OEM Replacement Pump Seals are an integral part of maintaining your machinery and pumps. It is important to have replacement parts for pump seals on site and Abbey Seals stock a variety of standard sizes. Contact our experts today for more information.
