Resolution for 2017 - Improve Mechanical Seal Life
Mechanical seal failure / dependability is the Achilles Heel of almost all plant operators and engineers. It could actually be a huge drain on the operations bottom line. However the most overlooked and under appreciated aspect of plant maintenance. The design of pump should be such that the deflection of the shaft at impeller end is within the limits prescribed by the seal manufacturer. A pump's dependability and reputation is built on the fact that it has minimum downtime and least requirement of spares. This can only happen when the deflection of the shaft at impeller end is within the limits prescribed by the seal manufacturer. ANTICO pumps are designed with this in mind. Almost all instances of mechanical seal failures are due to:
