Environmental Award

We are proud of an environmental award we earned from the Fluid Sealing Association and Chemical Engineering magazine for submitting the linked case study on this project. Similarly, supplying original equipment into […]

Expansion Joints: Growing The Technology

Advanced materials and innovative technology has transformed a common product into something extraordinary, further raising industry standards. This article was written by Jane Alexander and first appeared in Maintenance Technology. […]

Impellers Improve Performance and Reliability

Centrifugal Pumps are often employed in pumping processed aerobically digested sludge at Waste Water Treatment Plants. The problem is that hair and other stringy materials get caught in the Pump […]

Seals for Explosive Decompression

The sealing environment for down-hole pumps, compressors, valves and pipelines represents some of the most aggressive conditions to which elastomer seals are exposed. Temperatures may range from -50°C to 250°C and […]

The Alignment Triangle

No, it is not the place where good alignments get lost – never to be seen again! It is a way of thinking about locating machinery feet so that the […]

The Biggest Cost Savings Related to Shaft Alignment

Plant engineers sometimes ask how to best justify purchasing a precision laser alignment tool and training. My first answer is usually to point to a pump in the plant, and […]

The Key to Good Alignment is Good Preparation

There are many types of tools with which we can perform an accurate shaft alignment

When You Don’t Trust Your Alignment Tool

I’ve been in the millwright business for many years. In all that time, I never heard anyone blame a dial indicator for not getting repeatable alignment results. But I have […]

Why do we need to align a coupling in the first place?

Why do we need to align a coupling in the first place? If you ask the mechanic, maintenance manager, reliability technician, or plant engineer, you might get four different answers! […]

Explosive Decompression Resistance of Seals and O-rings

Explosive decompression (ED), also referred to as rapid gas decompression (RGD), is a failure mechanism of elastomer seals which is due to the rapid decompression of gaseous media. When elastomer seals are exposed […]

Q&A on 3D Inverse Design: Pump Efficiency through Optimization

You hear about it everywhere – design optimization. The world requires more and more efficient and reduced emissions products, as with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Engine Testing Regulations and European Commission Ecodesign […]
