The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly presented the most challenging year in recent times. We have realized things don’t always work out the way we want them to, and that extends into just about all aspects of our lives. Industrial technology is no different, and when it comes to pumps, a failed mechanical seal is going to be inevitable.
Whether you needed the services or not, many things were restricted, including technicians visiting on-site for inspection and repair. Though, sooner or later, the pump seals will fail if they’re not attended to when an issue arises. If you continue to operate your plant with failing seals in your industrial pumps, you’ll be hit with a big mess and an even bigger bill to assess the damage.
Additionally, the more the pump has depreciated over the years, the more likely it is that seals will break far easier and more often than with newer systems. These broken seals will leak on the floor, causing a hazardous working environment for you and your employees. If such a hazard becomes a reality for you, please don’t hesitate to have your industrial systems inspected immediately before other issues arise.
The good news is there is something that we can do for you right now before a technician comes out to inspect and repair the system. Take a photo of your horizontal pump tags and we’ll do the research from inside the pump. From this research, we can put together a quote for a new seal and lead times. Foreign-made and older pumps can make this process a little more difficult. Give us a call ahead of time so we can do the extra work to find the right seal information fit for your pumps.
Since the pandemic, plant visits and repairs from pump technicians are few and far. By now, plants are able to have their equipment inspected by professionals whereas things were at a standstill for a while. If you know you need a pump repair soon, don’t hesitate to call us here at Great Lakes Pump & Supply Co.
