Increasing MTBF for CIO2 Applications in the Pulp & Paper Industry

In this webinar, John Crane will discuss how a southeastern pulp and paper mill used one seal standard design to serve both low and high pressure sealing on its chlorine dioxide bleaching processes CI02 transfer pumps.

We’ll show how the use of upstream pumping (USP) technology allows the creation of a high pressure, low volume lubrication delivery system, providing a clean environment for the seal to operate which improves pump performance and mean time between repair (MTBR). The mill chose John Crane’s engineered Type 5620 USP non-contacting seal face treatment to improve MTBR and to reduce water waste. As a result, the mill has increased MTBR (mean time between repair) by 71% and is saving up to 63,000 gallons of water per year, per seal, since the upgrade was completed.

Who should attend

• Process / Plant Managers

• Maintenance / Reliability Engineers

• Anyone involved in the operation and maintenance of pulp/paper plants

Learning Objectives

Demonstrate how adding upstream pumping face technology to mechanical seals improves processing and reduces seal wear by:

• Optimizing mechanical seal performance

• Reducing friction and seal wear for increased uptime

• Conserving water

• Increasing MTBR (Mean Time Between Repair)
