There's no doubt about the value gained from engaging with industry peers and experts to learn more about best practices. However, for both employees and customers to better understand the most effective ways to operate technology and adhere to industry standards, they must expand their knowledge through various learning and development opportunities. These knowledge extensions are the primary drivers in building core competencies to ensure success.

Check out our latest on-demand webinars on increasing the reliability of your critical oil pipeline, and strategies to improve black liquor processing in pulp and paper mills.

Increase the Reliability of Your Critical Oil Pipeline: Discover an Innovative Retrofit Sealing Solution

Crude-oil pipeline pumps traditionally suffer from seal leakage due to the fretting or wearing of the dynamic O-ring, rather than wear to the dynamic seal faces. Surveys and root-cause analyses performed on equipment demonstrate that solids and debris contained in the pumped product cause secondary seal damage, and ultimately, seal failure.

Pumping stations that serve transmission and gathering pipelines are often remote and unmanned. Use of a reliable secondary seal increases both pump and pipeline reliability.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the common causes of mechanical seal pump failure in crude oil pipelines
  • Quantify the immediate and longer-term costs and implication of seal failure
  • Understand the technical solution to overcome most common pipeline seal failures and extend mean time between repair
  • Discover the relative simplicity of seal retrofit and estimated payback period

Strategies to Improve Black Liquor Processing in Pulp & Paper Mills

During increased rates of industrial processing operations in a pulp, paper or board mill, every mechanical seal application experiences its own set of challenges, often including inadequate seal face lubrication, high heat generation, and dry-running conditions. These can cause leakage, unplanned downtime and even catastrophic equipment failure which can negatively impact operations and profitability. Mean time between repair of mechanical shaft seals can be frequent in these harsh conditions, which means that maintenance costs go up and equipment run time goes down, not to mention the increased expense of equipment failure and unplanned downtime.

Learning Objectives:

This webinar will provide insights and real-world case study examples that you can learn from and implement at your own mill for improved results right away. Our engineering experts will share practical strategies to help you:

  • Select the best mechanical seals to improve pump MTBR
  • Combine strategic seal support systems and best practice seal water flow control devices
  • Implement API/ANSI plans to boost water and energy savings
  • Address intermittent dry running conditions
  • Overcome poor lubricating fluids
  • Process liquids above their atmospheric boiling point
