This method can help keep the long-term success of a plant in mind.
Sealing solutions are critical to pumping to prevent leakage and, ultimately, failure. These are especially important in harsh conditions, whether from particulates, extreme temperature, or corrosive or heavily viscous fluid. The selection of the right seal can have as much impact on the system success as pump selection. These articles help with that selection and with the monitoring and maintaining of all types of seals.
