SEPCO Morning Session with David Brewer:

Stuffing Box Reliability: Proper packing installation and shaft stabilization prolong equipment and packing life.

As one of the most frequently used sealing technologies, compression packing is present in any facility or plant with pumps and valves. Improperly installed or seated packing causes worn shafts or sleeves, excess heat, and abnormal leakage. Teams must ensure they know how to install compression packing and follow the best practice steps carefully. Shaft deflection will also cause problems in pumps. The proper selection and installation of bushings help stabilize the shaft, again extending packing and equipment life. This presentation with help end users ensure that the packing and bushing systems are properly installed and seated.


Afternoon application session:

Packing Installation Workshop: Learning and executing proper installation of packing into “see-through” stuffing boxes to ensure that attendees understand the best practice guidelines for installing compression packing.
