Premature Mechanical Seal Failure

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
