API 682 solutions configured locally from a company you trust
Did you know that almost 40%* of unscheduled critical pump shutdowns are the result of mechanical seal failures? When rotating equipment fails, it's often due to a seal failure. Avoiding unnecessary downtime requires a reliable seal support system you can depend on that is configured to your application needs.
Best practices such as those found in API 682, detail minimum requirements for seal support systems. However, every site and situation is different and support systems often need to fit existing equipment, operating conditions and environmental concerns.
Less Leakage Saves Money, Reduces Labour and Improves Safety
Swagelok's mechanical seal support systems are designed to maximise the life of mechanical seals and the reliability of rotating equipment by maintaining lubrication and system pressure and providing properly conditioned fluid flows.
Simplified Installation and Maintenance
Swagelok's mechanical seal support systems are guided by API 682 and designed to avoid pipe threads to limit the number of leak points wherever possible, and are designed to maintain lubrication and system pressure to provide properly conditioned fluid flows. Our local, customisable and repeatable design and assembly results in fast, efficient replacement, maximising uptime.
Additional options are also available to ensure the complete system fits your operational requirements to accommodate system troubleshooting, maintenance or safety measures.
