Introduction

This GLOMACS Mechanical Seals: Selection, Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Failure Diagnostics training seminar covers a large range of seal types like Pusher Seals, Non-Pusher Seals, Cartridge Seals, Split Seals, Double Seals, Tandem Seals, Spring Seals, Bellow Seals and provides detailed seal classification.

The training seminar explains the purpose and basic components of mechanical seals. The participant is instructed in the identification and characteristics of materials commonly used to make seal faces and seal hardware, and to understand the limitations of seals.  Various seal designs and their application will be described. 

This seminar will cover mechanical seal troubleshooting and seal selection. Also, the seminar describes conditions that may affect mechanical seal performance. The steps necessary to prepare to remove, and to remove, a failed mechanical seal will be demonstrated.  The seminar trains the participant in failure analysis to determine the cause of seal failure and identify the means to correct the problem or condition that caused the failure. Seal disassembly and reassembly, 0-ring installation, and seal installation will be demonstrated

This GLOMACS training seminar will highlight:

  • Principle of operation of mechanical seals
  • Mechanical seal designs and arrangements
  • Selection of mechanical seal
  • Failure analysis of mechanical seals
  • Maintenance of mechanical seals

Objectives

At the end of this GLOMACS training seminar, you will learn to:

  • Identify the basic components of a mechanical seal
  • Explain how process fluid, temperature and operational conditions affect mechanical seals
  • Understand how to select a mechanical seal
  • Describe seal damage caused by chemical attack, heat and mechanical action
  • Identify the correct tools and procedures for maintaining mechanical seal

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Mechanical Seals: Selection, Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Failure Diagnostics training seminar will be taught in interactive lecture format, with roundtable discussions for certain topics. Case studies are employed to highlight particular points and appropriate video material used to illustrate particular conditions.  Animated cut-sections give a deep insight into mechanical seal operation and how mechanical seals work.

Organisational Impact

The organization will benefit from this GLOMACS training seminar by:

  • Improving plant reliability by the avoidance of unplanned equipment failures in service
  • Improving seal operating and maintenance techniques
  • Enabling better identification and specification of new and replacement seals
  • Saving money and time by enhancing troubleshooting skills
  • Avoiding repetitive failures by carrying out failure analysis on a mechanical seal
  • Extending the life of mechanical seals

Personal Impact

On a personal level, delegates will benefit in the following way:

  • Enhancing their basic knowledge related to selection and maintenance of mechanical seal
  • Better understanding of how manufacturers design and develop mechanical seals for environment
  • Improve their ability to select the appropriate mechanical seal.
  • Improve their ability to troubleshoot seal problems and avoid recurrence
  • Better control of the management of pumps and compressor maintenance and operation
  • Better understanding of mechanical seal installation and maintenance procedures
