Mechanical Dripless Shaft Seal PSS SHAFT SEAL The PSS Shaft Seal is the #1 selling marine mechanical seal worldwide and is installed as standard equipment by many of the world’s most reputable boat builders and boat yards. The PSS Shaft Seal is also recognized as the premiere retrofit (aftermarket) seal on the world market. Boat builders and boat yards recognize the advantages and value of installing the PSS as it eliminates the maintenance, constant adjustment and cost associated with traditional packing type glands. In addition to these benefits, the PSS Shaft Seal helps to eliminate water in the bilge (100% water tight) and wear to the propeller shaft. The PSS Shaft Seal can be easily retrofitted and is available for shafts ranging from 3/4” to 6” (20mm to 150mm).

CERTIFICATIONS

The PSS Shaft Seal is Bureau Veritas, ABS & RINA certified.

HOW IT WORKS

The Packless Sealing System (PSS) Shaft Seal is a mechanical face seal created between a rotating stainless steel rotor (N50 for Type B and Type C models) and a stationary carbon stator. The carbon stator is attached to a convoluted rubber bellow (silicone for Type B and Type C models) and the back of the bellow is attached to the shaft log (stern-tube) of the boat with hose clamps. During installation, the stainless steel rotor is used to compress the convoluted bellow. The rotor is then secured to the shaft. The compression of the bellow allows the seal faces to remain in constant contact while compensating for the fore-and-aft movement of the shaft caused by the propellers thrust pushing on the engine mounts.

The carbon stator is bored slightly larger than the shaft diameter, allowing it to “float” around the shaft and compensate for minor misalignment / vibration problems.

The stainless steel rotor is sealed to the shaft with o-rings. These o-rings rotate with the shaft and rotor and do not experience any wear during operation. This static o-ring seal enables the PSS Shaft Seal to be fit on shafts that have some wear or pitting, unlike lip seal designs which require a clean area for the lip seal to ride on.

This type of carbon face seal is less sensitive to the interruption of water flow or operation in silty water, when compared to other sealing options.

| PSS SHAFT SEAL

PSS TYPE A The Type A Seal is our most common product, with over 200,000 units in operation globally. This seal will satisfy most applications for pleasure boats and smaller commercial boats. For Shaft Diameters ¾” - 3¾” (20mm - 95mm)

COMPONENTS STAINLESS STEEL ROTOR

The rotor is manufactured out of 316L stainless steel. It is secured on the shaft using 2 pairs of set screws positioned at 90 degrees for maximum holding power. This rotor does not need replacement or maintenance under normal operating conditions. CARBON STATOR (SINGLE INJECTED) The grade of carbon composite used in the PSS Shaft Seal has a maximum operating temperature of 500° F (+260° C) and will not melt if the seal runs dry for a short period of time unlike a lip seal or a plastic face seal. The high density of the carbon greatly increases the longevity and wear resistance. The carbon should not need to be replaced under normal operating conditions. BELLOW The bellow on the Type A seal is molded out of a Nitrile compound. Nitrile is known for its resistance to petroleum products. It provides the best combination of durability, strength and elasticity necessary in this application.

PSS SHAFT SEAL |

PSS PRO

For Shaft Diameters 1¼” - 3¾” (32mm - 95mm)

COMPONENTS STAINLESS STEEL ROTOR

The PSS "PRO" model is manufactured with commercial applications in mind.

The rotor is manufactured out of 316L stainless steel. It is secured on the shaft using 2 pairs of set screws positioned at 90 degrees for maximum holding power. A locking collar is placed in front of the rotor and further retains the propeller or rudder shaft in case of catastrophic failure of the coupling or if the shaft comes free from the coupling. This rotor does not need replacement or maintenance under normal operating conditions. CARBON STATOR (SINGLE INJECTED) The grade of carbon composite used in the PSS PRO Shaft Seal has a maximum operating temperature of 500° F (+260° C) and will not melt if the seal runs dry for a short period of time unlike a lip seal or a plastic face seal. The high density of the carbon greatly increases the longevity and wear resistance. The carbon should not need to be replaced under normal operating conditions. BELLOW The PRO bellow is constructed out of high temp silicone laminated with either 4 or 5 plies of polyester fabric (aramid in larger sizes) and covered with a layer of fluorosilicone. On the larger models, the strength is greatly increased by the use of stainless steel hoops laid into the convolutions of the bellow.

| PSS SHAFT SEAL

PSS TYPE B For Shaft Diameters 4” - 6½” (100mm - 165mm)

COMPONENTS

For over 20 years, the type B seal has proven to be a workhorse for the commercial boat industry.

STAINLESS STEEL ROTOR The rotor on the Type B seal is manufactured out of Nitronic 50 stainless alloy. It is secured on the shaft a with large locking collar placed in front of the rotor. This collar (clamp) has a dual purpose: it secures the rotor in place on the shaft and is used as a tool during installation. The Nitronic 50 material is a very high grade of stainless steel which is almost totally corrosion resistant. This rotor does not need replacement under normal operating conditions. CARBON STATOR (DUAL INJECTED) The grade of carbon composite used in the PSS Shaft Seal has a maximum operating temperature of 500° F (+260° C) and will not melt if the seal runs dry for a short period of time unlike a lip seal or a plastic face seal. The high density of the carbon greatly increases the longevity and wear resistance. The carbon should not need to be replaced under normal operating conditions. BELLOW The Type B bellow is constructed out of high temp silicone laminated with either 4 or 5 plies of polyester fabric (aramid in larger sizes). On the larger models, the strength is greatly increased by the use of stainless steel hoops laid into the convolutions of the bellow.

PSS SHAFT SEAL |

PSS TYPE C For Shaft Diameters 6½” - 8” (165mm - 203mm) Unlike other PSS Shaft Seals, the Type C has an integrated support for the carbon stator, so that it does not rely on the bellow for weight support. The PSS Type C Shaft Seal is available in three installation configurations: • Weld on Stern Tube • Flange Mounted • Flange Mounted with Integrated Bladder System

As with all PSS seals, the PSS Type C model is a mechanical face seal using the flat surfaces of the rotating rotor and the stationary carbon flange / ring to create a water tight, dripless system. Commercial oriented by design, the Type C system uses a N50 rotor fitted on the shaft in front of the carbon flange and is secured in compression with a 316L split collar. The stationary acetal/carbon stator is attached to a heavy duty silicone bellow clamped to the vessel using the appropriate mounting option.

TYPE C MODELS

WELD ON STERN TUBE Ideal for new construction installations, this system includes the standard Type C Seal and is designed as a weld on application. The internal tube will support the weight of the acetal/carbon stator so it stays centered to the shaft. Available in aluminum, mild steel or 316L, this mounting system ensures minimal installation time, integrates with many vessel configurations and eliminates the need for an additional adapter/bolt on system. 1. This clamp assembly maintains the PSS Type C preload/compression. 2. Nitronic 50 SS rotor surfaced to 9 Ra finish. 3. Machined acetal hub with carbon stator insert, lapped to 4 HLB. 4. Water is plumbed into the PSS Shaft Seal for cooling/lubricating the seal faces on high speed vessels. 5. Reinforced Silicone bellow houses the stationary acetal/carbon stator and is secured to the provided stern tube. 6. T-Bolt style hose clamps secure the bellow to the stern tube and the acetal/carbon stator in the bellow. 7. Stern Tube made from your choice of aluminum, mild steel or 316L stainless steel, will be welded directly onto the vessel.

FLANGE MOUNTED Ideal for retrofit or new construction installations, this system includes the standard Type C Seal and is designed as a bolt on application. The internal tube will support the weight of the acetal/carbon stator so it stays centered to the shaft. Available in aluminum, mild steel or 316L, this mounting system is machined to match your specific application/ existing flange pattern and is offered “pre-drilled” to your bolt pattern, size and spacing or supplied “blank” for simplicity and drilling at the time of installation. 1. This clamp assembly maintains the PSS Type C preload/compression. 2. Nitronic 50 SS rotor surfaced to 9 Ra finish. 3. Machined acetal hub with carbon stator insert, lapped to 4 HLB. 4.

For All PSS Shaft Seal Models

MAINTENANCE KIT To ensure longevity and proper function of the PSS Shaft Seal, PYI provides a PSS Maintenance Kit to follow PYI’s recommended maintenance schedule. As with any rubber/silicone hose below the waterline, the PSS bellow must be inspected on a regular basis for any sign of wear, aging or chemical deterioration. PYI recommends that the bellow be replaced once every 6 years (for Type A Seals) and 8-10 years (for Type B or PRO Seals). It is also recommended that the hose clamps, as well as the O-Rings and set screws in the stainless steel rotor, be changed out during the bellow replacement. PYI includes all of the necessary replacement parts in the PSS Maintenance Kit.

O-RING KIT If the PSS Shaft Seal needs to be removed and re-installed, PYI suggests that you replace the o-rings, and more importantly, change the set screws as they are designed for one time use. This is a replacement kit for the o-rings and set screws.

FLOW INDICATOR PYI offers an Inline Flow Indicator. This paddle wheel/sight flow indicator will allow the boat owner to quickly confirm positive water flow running to the seal/through the line. When installed in-line, the paddle will spin if positive water flow is present and will ensure the seal is getting the necessary water to keep it lubricated. The flow indicator is fitted with 3/8” hose barbs.

Includes

• Flow indicator • 3/8” hose barbs - 2 qty. • 316L hose clamps - 4 qty. • Clamp Jackets (Hose clamp tail covers)

HY-VENT PYI is now offering the Taco Hy-vent for sailboats and other low speed watercrafts. This nickel plated brass vent is to be installed at the end of the vent line. It is a float style vent/valve that will allow air out while restricting water flow in that direction. If any water or backflow is to come up the line from the seal, the vent will close off, keeping the water from entering the engine room. Once the water flow subsides, the float will open allowing air to freely vent. This product is a great option to maintain an air free system and ensure the engine room stays dry in the event of back flow; from prop wash, unusual external pressure, backing down, etc.

Includes

• Hy-Vent • 3/8” hose barb - 1 qty. • 316L hose clamps - 2 qty. • Clamp Jackets (Hose clamp tail covers)

PSS SHAFT SEAL |

PSS FLANGE & BLADDER SYSTEM

For Shaft Diameters 4” - 6” (100mm - 150mm)

Available in aluminum, mild steel and stainless steel

A large number of commercial vessels are manufactured with a multi- bolt flange in lieu of a stern tube. PYI offers fully customizable flange options to match the existing standard bolt pattern on the vessel (or blank to be drilled at installation) and facilitate the installation of the PSS Shaft Seal (or other shaft log mounted seals). These adapters can be ordered in any configuration as a “standard unit” or as an “inflatable bladder unit”. The inflatable bladder option allows the operator to seal the stern tube, while the shaft is not rotating, in order to inspect, clean, or work forward of the seal. In addition, if decoupling of the shaft is needed, this operation can be done in the water as the shaft can be moved aft with the bladder inflated with minimal water intrusion occurring. This inflatable bladder can also be used in case of an emergency.

PSS STANDARD FLANGES For Shaft Diameters 4” - 6” (100mm - 150mm)

Not all vessels require a flange and bladder system, but most require a flange. To that effect PSS is offering flanges in all common materials (316 stainless steel, mild steel and aluminum). As all flanges are manufactured to order on our CNC lathes and mills, we can accommodate all patterns and shapes.

HOW DOES IT WORK? An inflatable nitrile rubber bladder is nested in the flange. Once inflated to approximately 10 - 15 PSI, the bladder will come into contact with the shaft, creating a water tight seal. Deflate the rubber bladder to retract the bladder from the shaft allowing water back through - no damage is done to the shaft during this process. Bladder replacement is recommended every 10 years under normal use and varies dependant on water condition. The bladder can only be used with a stationary shaft.

SHAFT RETENTION COLLAR |

MAX-PROP Automatic Feathering Propellers

THE STORY Max-Prop was designed and built in the early 1970’s by Maximillian Bianchi in Milan, Italy. Max, a young Italian engineer, invented a new type of propeller at the request of a sailboat racing friend in the golden days of the IOR racing rules. Little did he know at the time, this simple product would become his lifelong passion and livelihood. To this day, Max still oversees any new development of the product and follows it all the way through the manufacturing process. It is hard to believe, but Max quality checks each and every propeller that comes out of his factory. Nowadays, his son and daughter work with him, so the legacy will continue long after Max retires...if he ever does. THE FOUNDRY In order to keep the metal quality to a constant high standard, Max bought a foundry in the mid 70's. To this day, the majority of Max-Prop cast parts are made in that foundry near Lake Cuomo, a two hour drive from Milan. The ownership of this foundry not only resulted in high quality cast parts, but also insured that any defect in the material or the part would not be passed on to the next stage of machining. This vertical integration is one of the main reasons for the success and durability of Max-Prop. THE MACHINE SHOP The actual machining of the propellers has always been under the full supervision of Max, from the early days of manual lathes and mills to the ultra-modern CNC machines of today. Through the years, the machine shop has had multiple locations and currently is in Milan, in the same building as the sales offices, management and where the final assembly of the Max-Prop occurs. Once again, Max himself oversees each and every process. SALES OFFICE PYI is the only sales office for Max-Prop in North/South America and Asia. Since then, PYI has added products which are well known in the sailing community, some as a manufacturer and some as a distributor. Through the years, Max-Prop has been the driving force for PYI, allowing us to facilitate the manufacturing of other quality products.

Benefits of a Max-Prop Propeller BENEFITS

VERY LOW DRAG UNDER SAIL Under sail a Max-Prop will increase sailing speed between 10% to 15% compared to a fixed blade propeller, the largest difference being noticed when sailing in light air. The drag under sail varies widely between propellers, number of blades, angle of the shaft as well as location of the propeller on the boat. It is fair to say that a 2 blade Max-Prop propeller located on a horizontal shaft (sail-drive) will have the least drag while a 5 blade Max-Prop on a high angle shaft will have the most drag. However, even a 5 blade Max-Prop on a high angle shaft will have substantially less drag and provide more power when motoring than a fixed 2 blade propeller.

Whether purchasing, refitting, or re-powering, a boat owner is faced with a somewhat confusing choice of propellers: fixed bladed, folding, feathering, brands, material, number of blades. It becomes daunting. So why choose a Max-Prop?

RELIABILITY IN OPERATION Max-Props are "feathering propellers". Unlike folding propellers, Max-Props do not rely on centrifugal force to open. Instead, the Max-Prop relies on the torque from the shaft rotation acting on the "differential" type gear design in the body of the propeller. This in turns ensures an immediate opening in forward and more importantly, in reverse, unlike folding propellers which have a lag time in reverse.

RELIABILITY OVER TIME Through the years, Max-Prop propellers have acquired a flawless reputation for reliability and longevity. It is not uncommon to see a boat built in the 70's or 80's still using its orginally installed Max-Prop. A simple check on the internet would allow you to see the renowned reputation of Max-Prop. While we all wish that we could sail all the time, a propeller is a very important part of any sailboat. Sailboats end up powering a substantial amount of time and sometimes, in an emergency, we have to use our engine. In times like this it is critical to know that your propeller will open and will function as designed. Max-Prop has proven that time and again for decades.

EFFICIENT IN FORWARD While not always as efficient as a perfectly sized fixed propeller, the right choice of Max- Prop diameter, pitch and number of blades will usually achieve 96% or better efficiency compared to a fixed blade propeller. This maximum of 4% drop in efficiency is only seen at maximum throttle, which is seldom, if ever, used. The fact that with a Max-Prop, a boat owner or a designer can choose not only the diameter and number of blades of the propeller but can also adjust the pitch easily after sea trials makes the Max-Prop an ideal tool to fine tune a boat’s performance under power.

EFFICIENT IN REVERSE The simple fact that the Max-Prop blades use the same leading edge and pitch in reverse as in forward results in identical power in both directions. A fixed blade propeller loses almost 50% of its power in reverse. Worse yet - a folding propeller which, depending on the brand, can lose up to 80% of its power in reverse. The Max-Prop blades switch from forward to reverse instantaneously. It takes only ¾ of the shaft rotation for the blade switch to occur.
