Features & Benefits
What is the Lemco Seal made of?
The Lemco Seal is made of mild steel and pliable rubber.
What are the specs on the rubber?
The rubber is a buna synthetic rubber.
Why is the outside diameter of the seal larger than the ID of the well?
The rubber has to fold up all the way around before it will go down in the well. This is how it makes an air tight seal.
Do you offer drawdown well seals in stainless steel?
Yes, we do. When you’re choosing the size you want, be sure to check ‘Stainless Steel’ or ‘Mild Steel’.
Is it hard to push the seal down into the well?
Some installers/drillers wet the well casing ahead of the seal, then put water on top of the seal to help push it down.
Is it hard to pull the seal out when the well needs repairing?
You will need some type of lifting device to pull the pump.
Will the Lemco Seal work to stop the flow in an artesian well?
It depends on how much flow there is. Some have used two or more seals in tandem to successfully stop the flow.
Do you make a 6 x 4 Lemco Seal?
Will the seal still work if it's mounted 20-30 feet above the pump?
To best control drawdown, it should be mounted as close to the pump as possible.
