John Crane Launches Innovative Gas Seal Technology to Significantly Reduce Methane Emissions
Gas seal technology lowers operating costs, improves reliability and reduces methane emissions by up to 95 percent
In September 2018, we launched our latest gas seal technology―Aura™ 120 Narrow Section―designed to be retrofitted into centrifugal compressors with oil seals to significantly lower operating costs, improve reliability and reduce methane emissions by up to 95 percent.
John Crane Adds to Its "Aura"
Aura™ 120 Narrow Section was featured in CompressorTech2, a leading trade publication targeting gas compression products, systems and technologies.
Case Study Spotlight
John Crane Helps Leading German Energy Company Solve Seal and Stocking Problems, and Improve Repair Turnaround
By introducing new, more resilient components, improved seal maintenance, repair and stocking initiatives, MTBR increased from 20 months to more than 40 months.
A leading German-based, power-generation company was looking for a way to mitigate losses from damaged seals on high-performance boilers and volume pumps. Chemical reactions not communicated in the original specification had compromised feedwater seals and flue gas desulphurization (FGD) feed seals failed due to metal erosion and lack of seal component flexibility. This undiagnosed root cause and inconsistent repair procedures resulted in unplanned pump outages.
