Parameters for mechanical seal safety and reliability
Experience shows that pump MTBFs (mean time between failures) are directly related to mechanical seal reliability. It is well known that pump mechanical seal MTBF is the lowest of all machinery components. To optimize mechanical seal MTBFs, it is essential to confirm the actual seal operating conditions on the data sheet (PT, vapor pressure, S.G., P1 and P2).
