The Mechanical Seals course consists of four lessons designed for persons with a basic understanding of the operation and maintenance of pumps, agitators, and rotating equipment. The lessons in this course train participants to work effectively with mechanical seals. The functions, operation, and repair of common mechanical seals are demonstrated. The course presents specific procedures for failure analysis and identification, seal removal, disassembly, reassembly, and installation.

Included Modules

  1. Introduction to Mechanical Seals: This is the first lesson in the Mechanical Seals Course. The lesson explains the purpose and basic components of mechanical seals. The participant is instructed in the identification and characteristics of materials commonly used to make seal faces and seal hardware, and to understand the limitations of seals. Characteristics, limitations, and application of packing are also discussed.
  2. Mechanical Seal Designs: This is the second lesson in the Mechanical Seals Course. It describes various seal designs and their application. The lesson also describes conditions that may affect mechanical seal performance.
  3. Failure Analysis: This is the third lesson in the Mechanical Seals Course. This lesson demonstrates the steps necessary to prepare to remove, and to remove, a failed mechanical seal. The lesson trains the participant in failure analysis to determine the cause of seal failure and identify the means to correct the problem or condition that caused the failure.
  4. Mechanical Seal Maintenance: The final lesson in the Mechanical Seals Course, trains the learner in seal disassembly and reassembly, 0-ring installation, and seal installation.
