This webinar will look at sealing strategies and environmental controls commonly used in water and wastewater systems.

Although the cost of a mechanical seal is a relatively small percentage of the overall cost of a pump, 70-80% of unscheduled shutdowns are seals or packing related! So why are the selection and clear specification of a sealing strategy critical? We will review the common sealing approaches currently employed touching on the benefits and liabilities of each. We'll also discuss environmental controls and water management.
