A Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Fluid Sealing School

SEPCO recently hosted 20 distributors for its annual Fluid Sealing School.

An Editor’s Perspective

SEPCO was pleased to welcome Plant Services Editor-in-Chief, Tom Wilk, to its three-day course.

“About 20 of us from across the U.S. headed to Alabaster, Alabama, for a week to get grounded in these basics and, if possible, to get our hands a little dirty by installing some compression packing ourselves,” Wilk wrote in his article.
