Industry Podcast Discusses Conserving Water via Proper Sealing Selection
SEPCO’s Atlantic Regional Manager, David Brewer, was featured on a recent episode of the Rooted in Reliability podcast where he discussed water conservation and sealing technology with the show’s host, James Kovacevic.
Additionally, the two covered Brewer’s industry background and field experience, common sealing issues he encounters on the job, why organizations should be prioritizing water conservation, and where exactly water loss occurs in a system.
Some other topics and questions discussed during the podcast include:
- Common issues with rotating process equipment
- How ineffective maintenance practices are passed down from generation to generation in a plant environment
- How much water can be saved with proper sealing technology (Spoiler alert — it’s millions of gallons per year per asset!)
- The best ways to optimize barrier fluid in a double mechanical seal
- Real-world case studies
- New sealing technology
“[Listeners] need to understand that we’re not limited on what we can do in terms of fluid sealing or any type of sealing,” Brewer explained. “We’re not limited by what we can do to seal and reduce water, there are many options out there.”
