John Crane Launches New 5610 Liquid Quench Seal with Flexibility to Cover More Applications

John Crane, a global leader in rotating equipment solutions, supplying engineered technologies and services to process industries, today announced the launch of its new 5610 Liquid Quench (5610L), which is an extension to the 5600 seal range.

The extension offers the same benefits of the 5600 seal design with a lip seal secondary containment device for liquid quench applications. The 5610L also promotes the reliability and interchangeability of the 5600 seal design for liquid quench applications.

“Our customers will benefit from an interchangeable seal head designed to accommodate a full range of liquids, including applications with crystallizing duties such as caustic soda, ammoniums, dirty water, light sugars and vegetable-based oils,” said Product Line Director, Universal Sealing Solutions, Terry Lemm.

Designed with a focus on operational efficiency and reliability, additional benefits and features of the new 5610L include:


  • Leverages the 5600 brand name and global recognition
  • Utilizes many existing components to maintain the interchangeability of the 5600
  • Provides a global standard design for liquid quench applications on the 5600


  • Fits most ANSI, ISO and DIN seal chambers
  • Optimized primary/mating ring design for greater reliability
  • Reversible and interchangeable seal head design
  • Factory preset and tested assembly
