Think Sealless Skills

Staff and people are a major cost of any operation. The need to employ people, the number and their skill level can mean the difference between a plant being economic or too expensive to run. This key factor can be evidenced by the way that production has moved to parts of the world where employment costs per hour or similar are lower.

How sealless pumps save on staff time and costs

Due to the simplicity of a sealless pump, the ease of commissioning and the minimal maintenance requirement means that not only are less people required but also that significantly less specialist skills are needed.

Reducing headcount and training budgets with:

    • Less skilled personnel
    • Fewer maintenance events
    • Less man hours per event
    • Less skill required
    • No special tools
    • No realignment
What costs do you save?
Additional Capital Costs

    • Additional documentation for system
    • and instrumentation
    • PED may be applicable for pressure vessel Extended SIL and HAZOP meetings
    • Long lead times for seal support systems
Additional Installation Costs
    • Cooling water piping or heat exchangers Electrical cabling and connection
    • Barrier fluid (first fill)
    • Instrument wiring and connection Instrument configuration (DCS)
Additional Operating Costs
