HI and FSA Team up to Offer Mechanical Seal Course

The Hydraulic Institute will co-sponsor a one-day course with the Fluid Sealing Association entitled, "Fundamentals of Mechanical Seals - Basics" at the twenty-third International Pump Users Symposium on March 5, 2007, presented by the Texas A&M Turbomachinary Lab in Houston, Texas.

The course is designed to give the attendee the necessary information to select and apply mechanical seals in various applications. The four presenters are Michael Huebner of Flowserve, Henri Azibert of A.W. Chesterton Co., Eric Vanhie of EagleBurgmann Seals, and Robert Goodenberger of John Crane Inc.

The course will focus on the effects of equipment types and pump operation on the performance of seals, including the selection and performance of piping plans and support systems. Attendees will also be introduced to failure analysis techniques and life cycle costing implications. Because mechanical seals are a critical component in the operation and reliability of centrifugal pumps, engineers, maintenance and operational personnel will gain valuable insight on how their systems can function more efficiently and reliably with their proper use.

All students attending this course will receive a copy of HI's "Mechanical Seals for Pumps: Application Guidelines". The reference book provides readers with useful and current pump mechanical seal knowledge. Scheduled for release in January 2007, this book is packed with user-friendly descriptions and explanations, tables, and photographs that rotating equipment OEMs, EPC professionals, plant engineers, and maintenance and reliability specialists need to ensure system reliability and increase Mean Time Between Repairs (MTBR).
