The UniverSeal shaft seal is a standard feature of a broad line of rotary-gear positive-displacement pumps. The seal design enables these pumps to accept lip seals, mechanical seals, or packing gland shaft seals, instead of just one seal type. Users can specify the factory seal they want, then switch seals depending on their application needs.
