What is a Plant Equipment Survey?

In the fluid sealing industry, there are a lot of variables: equipment type, media, temperature, seal type, pressure, shaft speed, etc. We audit the operating parameters of every piece of equipment you’re running and provide the best sealing recommendations for each individual piece. In most cases, we can significantly reduce or consolidate your replacement inventory of sealing products by up to 40%.

This is a comprehensive audit that looks at the time between failures, electrical energy considerations, leakage, and water consumption over time. We’ve taken companies from 50% failure rates using non-SEPCO seals to less than 10% within a year and a half.  

Your plant equipment survey will help you:

  • Improve inventory management
  • Improve sealing lifecycles
  • Achieve cost-savings
  • Avoid pulling equipment offline
  • Avoid price increases
  • Reduce energy costs
  • Reduce leakage
  • Reduce water consumption
  • Simplify maintenance

What Do I Get?

We will provide the optimal sealing products for each piece of equipment in your plant or mill based on operating parameters. We will also work with your local SEPCO distributor to ensure they maintain an inventory of the sealing products you use the most – that means you’re never more than two to five days away from a replacement.

How Long is Setup?

Equipment surveys typically take approximately a week for 800 pieces of equipment for labor. We then spend about 4-7 days preparing a recommendation.
