Toward Reduced Pump Operating Costs
MetadataShow full item record
Pump components such as seals and couplings affect the reliability and operating costs of pumping equipment directly. By reference to basic principles, those effects will be quantified and compared with the overall running costs of pumps. Available options will be examined and guidance given on the best choices. Examples of how the performance of mechanical seals in critical service has been improved will be given and experience in improving the reliability of large populations of pumps in plants around the world will be outlined.
