## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am designing an ROV thruster to be used in either salt or fresh water at depths to 100 meters. I am trying to find an appropriate mechanical seal to seal the propeller shaft.

This is for my own personal use so I'd like to keep the costs somewhat reasonable. I have been trying to find a resource...online manual, sales brochure or textbook that can help me find a proper solution. So far..no good.

Any ideas for something that can help me solve this problem would be appreciated. Heck...as many design challenges as I have had with this project, any input on resources on ANY facet of ROV design will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
