API682 Seals

API 682 is a widely recognized standard developed by the American Petroleum Institute (API) that specifies requirements for the design, testing, and operation of mechanical seals and supply systems used in centrifugal and rotary pumps in the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. It provides guidelines for the selection and application of seals to ensure reliable and safe operation in demanding environments.

API 682 covers various aspects related to mechanical seals, including materials, dimensions, performance testing, installation, operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. The standard aims to enhance seal reliability, reduce emissions, minimise leakage, and improve equipment uptime in critical process applications. Key features and requirements of API 682 typically include:

• Seal classification based on application requirements and process conditions.
• Dimensional and design criteria standardisation for mechanical seals, including seal face materials, secondary sealing elements, and seal support systems

Reliability Seals has a wide range of innovative API 682 compliant mechanical seals for practically all applications.
