It is commonly known that pump mechanical seals are temperamental devices that fail frequently. The fact is, mechanical seals are simple devices that are often misapplied, sometimes installed incorrectly, or perhaps installed on pumps that are not well suited for the application.

Causas y Soluciones de las Fugas en los Sellos Mecánicos de las Bombas

  • Article rating: 5.0

Para aquellos que son nuevos en el negocio de la reparación de bombas, los sellos pueden resultar intimidantes, sin embargo, es bien conocido que los sellos mecánicos de las bombas son dispositivos temperamentales que fallan con frecuencia. El hecho es que los sellos mecánicos son dispositivos simples que a menudo son utilizados de forma inadecuada, algunas veces instalados incorrectamente o tal vez montados en bombas que no son aptas para la aplicación. En la mayoría de las aplicaciones, los sellos mecánicos son lo suficientemente macizos para tolerar condiciones de operación y de manejo menos óptimas. Para aplicaciones exigentes todo debe estar bien.

Wear ring clearance for centrifugal pumps

Understand the pump specific speed to help establish proper tolerance

Trade press article — Pumps & Systems

One of the most common repairs on centrifugal pumps is replacing worn or damaged wear rings. To restore efficient, reliable operation and prevent catastrophic pump failure, it is critical to restore proper clearances between the stationary casing wear ring and the rotating impeller wear ring. Although many pump manufacturers provide clearances and dimensions, some do not. There are plenty of aging pumps around from now-defunct manufacturers for which dimension data is simply not available.

In such cases, the rule of thumb that follows provides some guidance for acceptable running clearances, or the minimum running clearance chart in American Petroleum Institute (API) Standard 610 can be used as a guide.

Understand O-Rings in Submersible Pump Maintenance & Repair Process

Inspect compression surfaces thoroughly to help ensure leak-free repairs

Trade press article — Pumps & Systems

A leak rate of one drip per minute equals about a liter (quart) of water in three days. For an O-ring on a submersible pump, that is a major problem. O-rings are often used for static seals on submersible pumps. Understanding what makes a good static seal and what causes one to leak is important for pump maintenance and repair technicians.

Choosing between "component" and "cartridge" mechanical seals

For many larger centrifugal pumps, there are options for installing “component” or “cartridge” mechanical seals. Understanding the advantages and limitations of each will allow you to recommend the best solution for customer applications.

Drip, drip, drip: Understanding O-rings in the repair process

One drip per minute amounts to about a liter (quart) of water in 3 days. If that's the leak rate for an O-ring on a submersible pump, that's a big problem. O-rings are common for static seals on submersible pumps. An understanding of what makes a good static seal, and what causes them to leak, is obviously important for pump repair technicians.
