Preventing Mechanical Seal Failure
Monday, February 12, 2018

Mechanical seals are used in pump systems to help join the systems together and prevent leakage of the pumped product, contain pressure, and exclude contamination. A typical system for a simple mechanical seal is comprised of the seal, the stuffing box throat bushing, a liquid flush system, an auxiliary seal and flush, as well as barrier fluid, if necessary. Most modern pump systems are moving more towards mechanical seals as opposed to traditional pump packing and while there are many advantages to using the mechanical method, it does come with its potential failures.  ..

Likely Reasons For Hydraulic Seal Failure
Monday, January 29, 2018

Hydraulic seals are soft, non-metallic rings that form vital components in various industry applications and machinery. Once captured in a groove, hydraulic seals form a seal assembly that converts fluid power into a linear motion, achieving optimum equipment performance, reduced leakage, and nominal friction. Hydraulic seals are made from a variety of materials, depending on the specific application’s conditions or limits.  ..
