Hydraulic Institute unveils mechanical seals webinar series
Participants will be led by and have access to industry-leading experts in a noncommercial educational forum. HI technical webinar participants can receive up to four professional development hour credits after completion of each live webinar.
The schedule is as follows:
Section 1 explains how a mechanical seal works and gives an overview of the most common seal types. The objectives are to give the student a good understanding of how leakage, friction and wear of the materials interact and why many different seal types are used in pumps, agitators and compressors. Presenter: Eric Vanhie, EagleBurgmann.
Section 2 will cover different design features used in common seals. This section will explain the strengths and weaknesses of various design options and impact of design features on seal performance. Presenter: Mike Huebner, Flowserve.
Section 3 will cover mechanical seals used in rotary equipment, basic preparation and standards as well as support-system piping plans promoting longer seal life and more. Presenter: Eric Boyce, John Crane.
Section 4 covers how to improve material selection, installation and operating procedures, environmental controls, seal design and much more. Presenter: Henri Azibert, A.W. Chesterton Co.
