Sponsored by Garlock

October 28 | 1-2PM (ET)

Reduce leaks around pumps to improve safety and reliability with an introduction of troubleshooting tips provided in this webinar. In the pulp and paper industry, fluid sealing challenges around pumps are common due to chemicals, thermal cycling, abrasion, temperature, environmental and other common conditions. In addition to process challenges, installation procedures can be a primary cause for leaks and failures. This webinar will present considerations and solutions for sealing gasketed flange connection, stuffing boxes, flexible pipe joints found in or around pumping systems.

Audience (Who Should Attend?):
Reliability engineer
Maintenance personnel
Process engineer
