High cost of maintaining equipment when Mech. seal fails. 12 hour change out and $12000 seal o/haul cost. Total cost to maintain 3 units in 1 yr. $120000.
To eliminate downtime due to Gland failure, means to adjust if leakage occurs, eliminate change out due to seal failure, significantly lower maintenance costs.
All 3 units done 1st in July 2002 No maintenance at all since and no leakage.
