The Liquidyne seal is robust and can stand a good deal. The big advantage is that the extent to which a seal is worn down is measurable. This enables us to plan maintenance and run our plant to a controlled stop rather than have an emergency shut down.
Close collaboration between Flowserve and Lagersmit in concrete volute cooling water pumps has resulted in a new design for the hybrid Liquidyne seal.
“Why I like to work with Lagersmit? Because of the good products and excellent service delivery. In addition, for years I can count on a market rate so that your costs remain under control. With other maritime service providers I sometimes had surprises in that area.”
