Plant Equipment Survey

What Is a Plant Equipment Survey?


In the fluid sealing industry, a myriad of variables, including equipment type, media, temperature, seal type, pressure, and shaft speed, must be considered. To address these complexities, our experts conduct a thorough Plant Equipment Survey, meticulously auditing the operating parameters of every piece of equipment. This in-depth analysis allows us to provide tailored sealing recommendations, often resulting in a remarkable reduction or consolidation of sealing product inventory by up to 40%. The survey encompasses various factors, such as time between failures, electrical energy considerations, leakage, and water consumption over time.

Our dedicated team has a proven track record of success, having transformed companies from experiencing a 50% failure rate with non-SEPCO seals to achieving a remarkable reduction to less than 10% within a mere year and a half. This exemplifies the effectiveness of our approach in optimizing plant efficiency and reliability through strategic fluid-sealing solutions.
