High leakage rates, frequent seal face replacements, water on head cover, or water contamination in oil/Babbitt bearings are all symptoms of shaft sealing problems. A well-engineered shaft sealing solution can solve these problems, as well as providing maintenance reduction and improved performance that can provide years of trouble-free service. Find out why it is important to understand the force balancing calculation used to optimize a radial or axial seal design. Learn how to deal with leaky turbine shaft seals by implementing a proven radial or axial shaft sealing solution using elastomeric face material.
This webinar will review common causes of seal failures, including design problems, material selection, water supply/filtration deficiencies, and maintenance practices. Several case studies will be shared by Thordon based on experiences seen globally, and solved locally. This session will be ideal for any operators or owners of aging power stations, or companies that are offering maintenance and service to these plants. Thordon has been working with hydropower end users and OEMs in more than 100 countries for over 30 years, and brings this full range of experience to apply to your local market.
