Mechanical Face Sealing for Rotating Equipment

About the Seminar

This two-day technical seminar has been developed to provide engineers and other technical personnel techniques and strategies for the complexities of mechanical face seal operation and design.

The primary focus is on seals commonly used in Centrifugal Pumps and Positive Displacement pumps with one or more rotating shafts, as well as other rotodynamic machines such as rotary mixers and steam turbines. Bearing protection and bearing isolators in relation to the above mentioned pumps are also included. Topics of emphasis include basic seal types, how seals work, materials and design considerations, while environmental control, piping plans and API Standards are likewise covered in detail.

Who Should Attend

This course is intended for engineering and/or maintenance personnel who encounter mechanical seals in their job as plant technicians; process designers needing to understand sealing for pumps and other rotating equipment; or reliability engineers and those involved with plant operation.
