Form a local relationship with a recognized mechanical seal supply / repair facility, capable of providing sealing solutions for specific applications versus simply a seal supplier. The company should be able to provide site surveys, seal recommendations, seal standardization across the site, engineering drawings, complete application detail and total ongoing support for repair and best return on investment.
