VIP Mechanical Seal Repair
- Mechanical seal repair is available on most seals from all seal manufacturers including but not limited to John Crane, Flowserve, Chesterton, PPC, AES, Delta, Flex-A-Seal, Burgmann, Robco, Sepco, Utex and many more.
- A failure analysis is performed on every seal to determine why the seal failed. We will always make any necessary suggestions that will lead to increased seal life. All seal repairs are given serial numbers and can be tracked on our database for determining Mean Time between Failure, and seal cost evaluation.
- All seal components are completely cleaned, measured, pressure tested, and inspected by the engineering department to determine which parts can be re-used, or require replacement.
- Seal faces are lapped to within industry standards (2 light bands) on one of several large floor model lapping machines within our controlled lapping room.
- Seal design and or materials can be upgraded as needed depending upon an engineered review of the seal application or by customer request.
- Upon final assembly all seals are again inspected by the engineering staff.

All mechanical seals, including single cartridges that are repaired in our facility are pressure tested and provided with a certificate stating such before they are returned to the customer.
