Ensuring Reliability: The Vital Role of Seal Support Systems

Seal support systems are integral to maintaining the efficiency and longevity of pumps and other critical machinery. At Reliability, we pride ourselves on providing reliable seal support systems designed to meet the diverse needs of various industries. But what exactly are seal support systems, and why are they so crucial?

What is a Seal Support System?

A seal support system is an auxiliary system designed to enhance the performance and lifespan of mechanical seals. Mechanical seals are used to prevent leakage of fluids from rotating equipment, such as pumps and compressors. The support system ensures that these seals operate under optimal conditions, thus maintaining the integrity of the equipment and preventing costly downtime.

What is a Seal System?

A seal system encompasses all the components and mechanisms that work together to prevent fluid leakage in rotating machinery. This includes not only the mechanical seal itself but also the support system that supplies necessary fluids (like cooling or lubricating fluids), controls temperature, and maintains the appropriate pressure around the seal.

What is the Purpose of a Sealing System?

The primary purpose of a sealing system is to provide a barrier that prevents leakage of fluids from within a piece of equipment. This barrier is crucial for several reasons:

  • Preventing Fluid Loss: Reducing waste and ensuring that the machinery operates efficiently.
  • Protecting Equipment: By keeping contaminants out, the sealing system helps prevent damage to critical components.
  • Ensuring Safety: Proper sealing reduces the risk of hazardous leaks, which could be dangerous to both personnel and the environment.
  • Enhancing Reliability: A well-maintained sealing system ensures consistent operation, reducing the likelihood of unexpected failures.

Our Range of Support Seal Systems

At Reliability, we understand the diverse needs of different industries, and our comprehensive range of seal support systems is designed to cater to these needs with precision and dependability. Our products are engineered to deliver high performance, durability, and reliability in even the most demanding environments.

Water System: STAN12-WMS and STAN28-WMS

Our water systems are designed to provide effective cooling and lubrication for mechanical seals. They ensure that seals operate under optimal temperature and pressure conditions, thereby enhancing their lifespan and performance.

  • STAN12-WMS: A 12-litre water management system ideal for use with double mechanical seals. It includes a pressure gauge, hose kit, and a mounting bracket that can be wall or stand-mounted. Features an internal heating/cooling coil and comes factory-assembled and tested.
  • STAN28-WMS: A larger, 28-litre water management system with similar features to the STAN12-WMS, designed for applications requiring a higher capacity.

Thermal System: STAN28-TCC and STAN12-TCC

Thermal systems are crucial for applications where temperature control is essential. Our thermal systems are designed to maintain the mechanical seal at an optimal temperature, preventing overheating and ensuring consistent performance.

  • STAN12-TCC: A compact, 12-litre version of the thermal management system with added features like a hand pump and weld pad sight glass, offering efficient temperature control and management.
  • STAN28-TCC: A 28-litre thermosyphon water/oil management system perfect for double mechanical seals. It features an internal heating/cooling coil, pressure gauge, and is factory-assembled and tested.

Plan 54 System: STAN100-FCS

  • STAN100-FCS: A robust, 100-litre oil forced circulation system designed for API Plan 54 applications. This system ensures efficient cooling and lubrication with features like a temperature, pressure, and level gauge, and a positive displacement pump for consistent oil circulation.
