  • The most often asked question is what to choose
    for the pump sealing application a mechanical
    seal or compression packing?
  • Well, both methods have some positive points and
    some negative points. The blog compares between
    the two choices and helps you in choosing the
    right one.

1. COMPRESSION PACKING
  • Compression packing is still a preferred sealing
    choice in several rotating applications. It is a
    relatively cheaper alternative than a mechanical
    seal. Not only that, but the maintenance is also
    relatively simple.
  • However, the maintenance interventions are more
    frequent than mechanical seals. Some prominent
    benefits are as follows

5
  • The compression packing is easy to install. The
    packing rings can be installed quickly. The
    equipment disassembly required is minimal.
  • The time required to get equipment back up and
    running is less. So, the downtime is also less.
  • The up-front cost of compression packing is lower
    than the mechanical seal. As the complexity and
    equipment size increases, the cost difference
    also increases.
  • Since the same compression packing can serve a
    variety of equipment, you need to spend lesser
    money in stocking and managing inventory.

  • This mechanism is more forgiving of shaft
    alignment and equipment condition. It means that
    the error tolerance is high.
  • If the application involves pumping of abrasive
    media or heavy slurries, then compression packing
    is the ideal choice. It can support the high-wear
    nature of these applications well. The potential
    misalignment of shaft and large size of the
    equipment can be easily supported by pump
    sealing.

2. MECHANICAL SEALS
  • When the media being pumped has a health or
    environment hazard or safety threat the
    mechanical seal is the right choice. It offers a
    superior leak and emission-free sealing than
    compression packing mechanism. Some prominent
    benefits are
  • It has improved reliability and uptime of the
    equipment. Even if it is expensive than
    compression packing, it is preferred because of
    highly reliable sealing performance over the
    long-term. The total lifecycle cost is lower.
  • Mechanical seals require fewer maintenance
    interventions. The adjustment and repacking needs
    are quite fewer than compression packing.
  • Product loss due to leakage is less in mechanical
    seals. It is leak-free mechanism if installed
    well. Therefore, seals are ideal when the loss of
    media being pumped is not affordable.

  • Which sealing mechanism is ideal depends on the
    operating conditions and performance
    expectations. You need to have a careful
    consideration of the above factors. It is better
    to ask experts if decision making is difficult.
