How Do You Select The Right Mechanical Seals?

Aug 14th 2019 at 1:22 AM

Mechanical seals play a very important role in the process industry and you are required to make the right choices when you are selecting your mechanical seals. There are so many products in the industry and how do you select your mechanical seals like Metal Bellow Seals and other seals?

One of the most common strategies used while sourcing mechanical seals is the cost. Are you also trying to shortlist the seals based on cost? Of course you are required to ensure that right prices are payed for the mechanical seals you source but if you are going to source your products just based on the cost within no time you will be required to go for a replacement and in such instances do you think that you would have saved money? No, you would not have certainly saved money but you would have rather spent twice on the same product for the quality reasons.

You would be going for metal bellow seals when the process temperature goes over 200 degrees Celsius and you cannot afford to take risks in such intense situations as the seals are exposed to extreme conditions. Your priority should always be quality and no mistakes in this regard. Under high temperatures the seal materials could be damaged if the quality of the seals you select is questionable.

When selecting your mechanical seals regardless of whether it is Agitator Seals or Metal Bellow Seals it is important that you start your search based on the application and the basic seal specifications. The seals have to meet all the technical specifications 100%.

You will have to look into number of factors before you narrowed down on your mechanical seals. Always select a company that has been in the industry for several years. They should be a well-established brand that has contributed something to the process industry. Such companies would have perfected their products over the years based on their own research and testing and also based on the constant feedback they get from the market. All these advantages will not be there for a brand new company as they would need time to go through this learning cycle. The competition level in this industry is very high, select companies that have been the industry leader by pioneering their own line of products and thereby helping the process industry.

Look at the reputation of the brand that you are choosing. What has been the experience of the customers who have gone with the company that you are planning to select? Take your time to screen as many mechanical seals companies as you need to before narrowing down on your choice because this is a onetime endeavor and once you identify your brand you will be able to go with the same company for all your future needs as well. Only when you do not invest the required time right at the start you are likely to waste a lot of time looking for a more reliable mechanical seals for your process.
