Mechanical seals have been the dominant sealing technology for refineries and chemical plants for decades. But how much do you know about proper system design and how it eases maintenance? Since something as simple as strategically integrating bypass lines can help increase rotating equipment uptime, it is important to understand the basics of how seal support systems work so you can optimize their use in your facilities.

If you are tasked with keeping rotating equipment online and operating efficiently, and you are interested in learning more about mechanical seals and the systems that support their long-term operation, Swagelok’s upcoming free webinar is for you. Join us on April 4 at 11 a.m. ET as Matt Dixon, Application Commercialization Manager, discusses:
• The main functions of a mechanical seal support system
• How these systems help eliminate potential leak points and increase safety while lessening time spent auditing connections and making repairs
• Optimal system designs according to API 682, and how to select them
