Why Mechanical Seals Fail

This one day course is designed for those interested in the performance and reliability of rotating fluid machinery.

. This course takes a look at what conditions a mechanical seal needs to operate happily. Failure to maintain this environment for the seal causes premature failure. The way the conditions can be upset by various factors, such as maintenance, operation and systems in the industrial environment will then be discussed.

This leads to a way of analysing seal problems to reduce failures and therefore improve pump life and reduce operating costs.

Objectives and benefits:

The conditions that the seal requires and how the following areas impact on performance, including:

Pump effects

System effects

Instrumentation and controls


Liquid effects

Condition of equipment

System information

Company environment

Course Programme:

The basics of mechanical seals

Important aspects of pump design

Types of seal failure

Maintenance issues

Balancing and alignment

Changes to pipework/systems

Who should attend:

Engineers and others who wish to improve their understanding of why mechanical seals fail.

Want to improve the reliability of their rotating fluid machinery
