Through this Mechanical Seals training course, the delegate will gain up-to-date information and practical understanding of the basics, applications, troubleshooting and failure diagnosis, installation and maintenance of mechanical seal. Mechanical seal for pump and compressor applications will be addressed. Recent design like dry mechanical seal will also be addressed.

The highlights of the Energy Training Centre training course are as follows:

  • Lubrication and sealing concepts
  • Mechanical seal and dry gas seal design
  • Different arrangements of mechanical seals
  • Optimal selection of seals and flush plans
  • Failure diagnosis and troubleshooting

At the end of this Mechanical Seals training course, participants will:

  • Have an understanding of the different types of seals
  • Have learned about selection, operation and maintenance strategies
  • Be able to troubleshoot seal problems
  • Understand how seals are fitted
  • Understand how seals are tested
  • Have an understanding of API flush plans

The training course will be conducted along workshop principles with formal lectures, case studies and interactive worked examples. Relevant case studies will be provided to illustrate the application of each tool in an operations environment. Each learning point will be re-enforced with practical exercises. There will be ample opportunities for discussion and sharing experiences.

On completion of this Mechanical Seals training course, the delegate will be able to critically analyse the methodologies employed within the organisation and instigate improvements where required.

The knowledge gained in this training course will:

  • Enable the delegate to optimise the operation and maintenance of various types of pumps & compressors
  • Give the delegate confidence to carry out failure analyses on seals thereby avoiding repetitive failures
  • Improve seal operating and maintenance techniques
  • Enable measures to quantify equipment condition
  • Give better control of mechanical seal providers
  • Enable better identification and specification of new and replacement seals
  • Allow tighter control of maintenance budgets by the avoidance of unplanned equipment failures in service
  • Improved confidence when dealing with suppliers and contractors
  • Better understanding of how manufacturers design and develop mechanical seals for particular environments
  • Better control of the management of pumps and compressor maintenance and operation
  • Improved personal knowledge of sealing systems
  • Better ability to troubleshoot seal problems and avoid recurrence
  • Confidence and ability to select the appropriate flush plan thereby improving reliability and personal profile to senior management
