W&P Pumps have been converting pumps for over 15 years, we can convert most pumps from Gland Packing to Mechianical seal.
MECHANICAL SEAL CONVERSIONS
W&P Pumps offer Mechanical seal conversions as a service to our customers, Mecahnical seals are a superior system to Gland packing, some of the biggest advantages to Mechanical seals are:
- No on-going maintenance unlike packing glands
- 100% Seal to avoid cavitation of expensive impellers
In a study conducted by MobilOil it was found that pumps with packing glands are more likely to cause bearing failure, just 0.02% water moisture in bearings can cause catastrouphic failure, the aftermath of bearing failure is usually expensive repairs or even complete pump replacement.
Packing seals are made to break pumpshafts by design; packing gland seal pumps are usually designed with a shaft wear sleeve, this shows that by design, packing seals wear down your expensive pumpshaft, this in turn can cause many issues with the pumps overall operation, often causing other serious issues which lead to the pumps ultimate failure, leaving you with expensive repairs or even complete replacement of the pump.
