Flowserve introduces seal failure analysis APP

27 March, 2018

Providing a solution to the challenges associated with mechanical seal failures, Flowserve now offers a very simple tool to help diagnose the root-cause of seal failure.


According to its own analysis, some 98% of mechanical seals prematurely fail long before they have reached their optimum design life-time expectancy.

The Flowserve seal failure analysis app is a web-based tool that has been specifically designed to visually identify and prevent future mechanical seal failures.

 Easy-to-use reference tool

Accessible via desktop, tablet and mobile devices, this easy-to-use reference tool is an invaluable resource for reliability engineers and maintenance staff, tasked with troubleshooting and preventative maintenance.

Flowserve comments that while mechanical seal failures are the number one cause of pump and mixer down-time, this area represents a great opportunity to reduce whole life costs on site across all pump systems.

Shaun Hampson, general manager of the Manchester (UK) facility said: “This new way of supporting our customers, on a 24/7/365 basis, provides engineers with more than 100 years of acquired knowledge at their finger-tips. When a seal fails, it is often a critical breakdown situation and companies don’t have the time to wait for an engineering expert to visit the site in order to provide a diagnosis. The App is incredibly easy to use and can lead to extended mechanical seal life. Our own members of staff use this tool.”
