    • Crude Oil Non-Pusher Secondary Seal 

      Rasmussen, Darin; Wasser, Jim; Morton, John (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      Crude oil pipeline pumps traditionally suffer from seal leakage due to the fretting or wearing of the dynamic O-ring. A new concept secondary seal has been developed to eliminate this fretting occurrence. All major seal ...
    • Mechanical (Liquid) Seals: General (Installation, Operation, Troubleshooting, and Retrofitting) 

      Asokan, S.P.; Bhat, Vasanth; Carmody, Chris; Forsthoffer, Michael Sean; Forsthoffer, William Eugene; Lalithkumar, Seetharam; Morton, John; Necker, Nikolaus; Wu, Shifeng (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      Mechanical seals are the most common method of sealing industrial centrifugal pumps and other rotary equipment. Although the basic concepts of a seals are simple, successfully using seals requires an understanding of the ...
    • PL03 - Realistic Expectations from a Unique Plan 66A Bushing Design 

      Steigerwald, Tom; Wasser, James; Morton, John (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment StationTexas A & M University. Libraries, [2019])
      The 66A dual bushing arrangement is used to provide leak detection on crude oil pipeline pumps. Here the effectiveness of the arrangement in detecting seal leakage and providing leakage containment are examined through ...
