Wage war on leaks

Jul 14, 2004

Time is running out to secure your space at John Crane Academy’s "Get Connected to Power Generation Sealing Technology Advancements" seminar. The day-long session — to be held Sept. 21 in Los Angeles and Nov. 16 in Philadelphia — is designed for maintenance mechanics and supervisors, plant and reliability engineers, EPC firm personnel, contractors, rotating equipment OEMs and others involved with the selection, installation, support, maintenance and repair of seals and related support systems in power plants.

Led by John Crane's experts in this market — Tom Nowak, regional engineer; Pearley Lachance, alliance engineer; and Tom Evans, power generation market manager — this seminar covers applications and services found in fossil fuel plants, nuclear plants, as well as other generating stations. Topics include:

  • Seals and support systems up close: Learn the fundamentals of mechanical seals, the design features and operating parameters, as well as the various methods and technologies of sealing support systems for enhanced seal performance and longevity.

  • Short course on power generation sealing and technology: This presentation is an examination of design features, construction materials, operating parameters and sealing support systems for specific power plant applications such as boiler feedwater pumps, hot condensate systems, FGD services and others.

  • When good seals go bad: Learn how to apply troubleshooting techniques to seal failures to improve mean time between repair (MTBR).

  • The science of seal repair: Maintaining the integrity of seal components and materials is critical to proper sealing. Discover the step-by-step process that experts use when repairing and rebuilding seals.
