How to Improve Pump Reliability

Mechanical Seals - Like a Fuse in the System?

This series explains how mechanical seals - while not designed to fail - often act like a fuse in an electrical system.

Watch the short preview video and find out:

  • What mechanical seals need for a long life
  • How oversized pumps can kill mechanical seals
  • How production pressures impact on mechanical seal life
  • How to stop mechanical seals prematurely failing
  • How to reduce your pump downtime
Find out how to ensure good seal life, and reduce pump downtime with our 5 part series - delivered to you daily.

This daily series of 5 videos will help you improve your pump reliability, lower your costs and increase production output.

The videos will help you understand what issues can cause mechanical seal failure and why issues within your pumping system can show up as mechanical seal failure. 

Mechanical seals - while not designed to fail - often act like a fuse in an electrical system.  In many cases mechanical seal failure is the first indication of problems in the pumping system as a whole.
