Everything must run smoothly

Reliable gas supply solution for compressors to avoid seal contamination and failures - Process gas centrifugal compressors are typically equipped with gas seals to prevent gas from escaping between the stationary compressor body and the rotating shaft. Compressors are normally shut down when high seal leakage occurs, indicating a seal failure. Experience shows that the major root cause for high gas leakage is the contamination of the seal. How can it be avoided?

Mechanical seals: considerations for reducing costs and water consumption

Water is the most frequently conveyed – and thus the most frequently sealed – medium. Corresponding seal solutions are in demand in virtually all aspects of industry, from the supply and treatment of water to desalination to wastewater technology. The various types of water involved – fresh, pure, process, hot and waste, for example – place differing requirements on sealing technology.
