    Premature Mechanical Seal Failure

    Premature Mechanical Seal Failure

    Chemical Manufacturing Plant

    Challenge:

    Customer seals were failing prematurely in a number of applications.

    Solution:
    • Began monitoring the MTBF on all seals in the plant.
    • When a seal failed, the seal was sent to Crane for a detailed seal analysis to be performed.
    • Based on the results from the seal analysis, the sales engineer worked with the customer to correct process-related problems.
    • Pumps and valves in the system were correctly sized to match the application.
    Results:
    • Yearly reduction in seal repair costs in excess of $30,000 the first year.
      • Almost 30% reduction of the yearly spend.
    • Increased production capabilities based on improved MTBF.
    • Decrease in maintenance cost associated with equipment repair.
