Mechanical seals are the most common method of sealing centrifugal pumps and other rotating equipment in process industries. While vital to attaining optimum pump energy efficiency, emissions containment, equipment reliability and safety, mechanical seals are only one part of creating a reliable solution.
Mechanical seal piping plans are systems that also provide critical support for a seal, choosing the correct one for a specific application can be challenging.
Advanced Mechanical Seals 201 provides an overview of the most common piping plans used today. In addition to outlining the pros and cons of over 15 different piping plans, this four-part webinar series discusses the auxiliary equipment, design considerations, operating parameters, installation, monitoring, as well as troubleshooting associated with each. In cases where multiple options are available to the user, piping plan benefits and limitations are compared. Basic calculations for estimating the performance of piping plans as well as a spreadsheet to assist with evaluating systems also are featured in the webinar. A Q&A session is conducted at the end of each section.
