FUNDAMENTALS OF MECHANICAL SEAL OPRATION:

FUNDAMENTALS OF MECHANICAL SEAL OPRATION The liquid to be pumped enters the suction inlet at the eye of the impeller.As the impeller rotates at relatively high speed .The liquid centrifugally forced to the out side diameter of the impeller where it flows out through the discharge nozzle. This same discharge pressure, however, flow down behind the impeller to the drive shaft which is connected to a driver out side the pump. This is the shaft that must be efficiently sealed if the pump is to be of any practical use. Relieving the high pressure behind the impeller to the low pressure suction eye of the impeller. The clearance between the back of the impeller and the pump back head actually much closer. Small pumping vanes are often placed on the back side of the impeller. Balance hole can also be drilled through the suction eye. By decreasing the pressure differential between front & rear of the impeller. This also reduce axial thrust on the shaft. So the suction pressure, plus small percentage of discharge pressure always surround the drive shaft.

Stuffing box with compression pkg.:

Stuffing box with compression pkg. If this pkg. Were to rub against the shaft,without lubrication present to prevent a build-up of frictional heat,it would soon destroy it self. So liquid must be allowed to flow between the pkg.and shaft , because of surface irregularities of pkg. , eccentricity between the stuffing box bore and the shaft,as well as shaft run out a significant amount of pkg. Must be used to compensate for these irregularities. It is this generous amount of pkg. that requires a proportionately generous amount of lubrication. When this flow of lubrication exit from the pkg.it becomes identified as leakage.

Slide3:

Mechanical seal Introduction-. In modern process / chemical industries where highly corrosive and expensive fluid are handled. Leaks are not tolerated. Since soft packing works on the principle of controlled leakage. The system is not accepted, hence mechanical seal preferred as they tend to seal with no visible leak. .

Function of mechanical seal:

Function of mechanical seal The function of every mechanical seal is to prevent.The escape of a fluid.The clearance between rotating shaft and the passage way through the wall of a housing /casing or pressure vessel.

Three primary sealing points:

Three primary sealing points 1) Between stationary element and casing 2) Between rotating element and shaft 3)Between mating surfaces of the rotating and seal elements

Three basic components:

Three basic components A set of primary sealing element A set of secondary sealing element Hardware for attaching,positioning and maintaining face to face contact

Primary sealing element:

Primary sealing element It is formed by two highly polished /lapped faces. One face is kept stationary and other face is fixed to a rotating shaft. (That create very difficult leakage due to rubbing contact between them.all seals leak but leakage is not visible.the leakage is very small and non hazardous).

Secondary sealing element:

Secondary sealing element Leakage path around stationary and rotating face are closed by secondary seals. The secondary seals are made up of various fluro-castomers. For pusher type of seals must move forward along the shaft to compensate for wear and vibrations at the seal faces. For non pusher type seals such as T metal bellows,wear are taken internally and secondary seals are truly static.

Hardware :

Hardware Adapt seal to various pieces of equipment. This hardware consist of a sleeve or housing to make for an easier more precise seal setting . Provides mechanical pre-loads to seal faces until hydraulic pressure can take over. This is largely accomplished by a large single coil spring or by a set of small coil spring. Transmit torque to both stationary and seal faces. Drive pins,dents, notches or screws incorporated into the seal design.

INSTALATION OF SEAL:

INSTALATION OF SEAL The following important point should be observed and strictly followed during seal installation. Checked up- stuffing box face, axial movement of shaft,radial movement of shaft, shaft run out , stuffing box square ness, concentric of stuffing box bore and alignment and pipe strain . Removed all burrs and sharp edges from the shaft or shaft sleeve. Check the stuffing box bore and stuffing box face to insure they are clean and free from burrs. All the seal assembly drawing gives the seal setting dimensions from the face of the stuffing box to the back of the rotary assembly. Shaft or sleeve should be oiled lightly prior to seal assembly to allow the move freely over it. Wipe seal faces clean and apply a clean oil film prior to complete the equipment assembly. Complete the equipment assembly taking care when compressing the seal in to the stuffing box.

Mechanical seal start-up & operation :

Mechanical seal start-up & operation To make sure that seal faces are immersed in liquid. All cooling lines heating lines should be operating and remain so far at least a short period after equipment is shut down. Not to run the equipment dry while checking motor rotation. The stuffing box should always be vented prior to start-up. Air may be entrapped in the top portion of stuffing box.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS:

ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS TEMPERATURE CONTROL The temperature surrounded the seal in a stuffing box is an extremely important consideration certain part of seal ,such as secondary pkg. & carbon may deteriorate under exposure to extremely high temp. viton below (204 0c) carbon break down above 260 These material must also be able to resist chemical attack by the liquid surrounding them. If often become necessary to protect same of materials by cooling the seal area. FLUSHING-BYPASS COOLING OR HEATING QUENCHING OUTSIDE &INSIDE SEAL

ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS:

COOLING FLUSHING ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS

ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS:

ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS The material being pumped solidifies at ambient temperature.(liquidity by heating ) Boiling point of the liquid in the stuffing box. The product must remain below its boiling point if it is to be pumped stuffing box can be heat traps. Vaporization may also cause precipitation of salts minerals or other abrasive impurities.

FLUSHING- BY PASS:

FLUSHING- BY PASS Introduction of a liquid in to a stuffing box at a higher pressure then stuffing box pressure. When it is desired to use by pass flushing for cooling, inside & out side seal, a recirculation line is run from the discharge nozzle through a heat exchanger or with out heat exchanger, to a connection in the gland ring located over the seal faces. Assuming that the product is dirty, a by pass flushing arrangement can be called upon to flood the stuffing box with clean liquid.
