When rotating equipment fails, it’s often due to a seal failure. In fact, 40% of all unscheduled critical pump shutdowns are caused by mechanical seal failures (Grundfos). And shutdowns are often expensive.
Swagelok’s mechanical seal support systems maximize the life of mechanical seals and the reliability of rotating equipment by maintaining lubrication and pressure with properly conditioned fluid flows.
