What Is a Plant Equipment Survey?
In the fluid sealing industry, many variables exist including equipment type, media, temperature, seal type, pressure, and shaft speed. Our experts audit the operating parameters of every piece of equipment to provide the best sealing recommendations. In most cases, they 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. Our team has taken companies from 50% failure rates using non-SEPCO seals to less than 10% within a year and a half.
How Your Plant Equipment Survey Will Help You
- Improved inventory management
- Improved sealing lifecycles
- Achieved cost-savings
- Prevent pulling equipment offline
- Avoided price increases
- Reduced energy costs
- Reduced leakage
- Reduced water consumption
- Simplified maintenance
What Do I Get?
Our experts suggest the optimal sealing products for each piece of equipment in your plant or mill based on operating parameters. They will also work with your local SEPCO distributor to ensure it maintains an inventory of the sealing products you use most – that means you’re never more than two to five days away from a replacement.
How Long Is Setup?
Equipment surveys typically take a week for 800 pieces of equipment for labor. We then spend about 4-7 days preparing a recommendation.
