ESKO offers ways to manage seal water use

ESKO Pacific Sales Ltd., Burnaby, BC and Bellingham, WA, points out that because water is a valuable resource, process industries such as pulp and paper need seal water to cool the seal and shaft, lubricate the seal and flush way impurities in the system. Without adequate controls, systems can consume far more water than necessary.

Effectively controlling the seal water temperature, system pressure, pump rotation speed and process or product temperature can help reduce costs and streamline maintenance and reliability.

Exceeding specified flow requirements for each type of seal is an easy option to cool, flush away impurities and provide lubrication but it doesn’t necessarily translate into operational benefits i.e. reduce water consumption.

ESKO says that effectively managing seal water use can:

  • Save money on both water consumption and wastewater treatment;
  • Improve seal reliability;
  • Reduce equipment downtime;
  • Comply with environmental stewardship.

ESKO’s seal water metering solutions come with clear and visible in-line flow meters, control valves, check valves, alarm sensors and pressure gauges. Quick-clean and anti-clog features are available.
