Mechanical Seal Support Systems
API 682 solutions configured locally from the company you trust
Swagelok's mechanical seal support systems are designed to maximize the life of mechanical seals and the reliability of rotating equipment by maintaining lubrication and system pressure and providing properly conditioned fluid flows.
Less Leakage Saves Money, Reduces Labor, and Improves Safety
Nearly 40%1 of all unscheduled critical pump shutdowns are caused by mechanical seal failures. While all seals leak, mechanical seals and mechanical seal support systems help control leakage, saving money, reducing labor, and improving safety. To protect your operations, it’s best to use a seal support system that is customized to your application's specific needs and designed to reduce costly leak points.
Simplified Installation and Maintenance Reduce Labor
Swagelok’s mechanical seal support systems are guided by API 682 and designed to avoid pipe threads to limit the number of leak points wherever possible. Standardization is key in improving efficiency, and our customizable, repeatable design and assembly result in fast, efficient replacement, maximizing uptime. Where beneficial for system troubleshooting, maintenance, or safety, additional options are available to ensure the plan you choose fits your requirements.
