Seal Face Wear Patterns
Certain wear patterns on your seal face may indicate problems that require attention. This section is meant to be a guideline to help you stave off unnecessary seal repairs due to a shaft or pump problem or due to environmental considerations.
The examples here will provide you with indicators only. A thorough, professional inspection will ascertain and confirm any existing problems more accurately and a professional seal engineer will be able to make appropriate recommendations.
NE Seal recommends always examining your seal faces when changing a seal. This way you can be alerted to conditions which may rapidly damage the replacement seal and incur unnecessary maintenance costs. If in doubt, please call us and we will render a professional opinion.
