Course Overview

What are dry gas seals used for? Dry gas seals are mechanical seals used in harsh working environments such as oil exploration, extraction and refining, petrochemical industries, etc. These seals consist of a mating (rotating) ring and a primary (stationary) ring. These are highly reliable seals, and an organisation incurs lesser operating and maintenance costs with these. Furthermore, leakages and emissions are reduced with dry gas seals. This type of seals are used in applications with exceptionally high speeds. The faces of dry seals are not in contact, which means that they can be no friction caused by these seals. Because of their uniqueness and safety, they are extensively used in the pipeline industry.

This Zoe training course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of dry gas seals, including their installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance. By undertaking this course, you will acquire the ability and confidence to effectively ensure successful operations involving dry gas seals. Furthermore, given the utility of dry gas seals, receiving detailed training on their operation and maintenance will increase your chances and opportunities for growth and career progression across various industries.


Course Objectives

The primary objective of this training course is to empower professionals with—

  • in-depth understanding and detailed information about dry gas seals, including their installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance
  • the required understanding of challenges and precautionary measures to be undertaken when working with dry gas seals, thus preventing hazards and losses to the organisation
  • adequate experience and knowledge to train other professionals on effectively working with dry gas seals
  • an enhanced perspective and eye for detail to audit existing equipment and machinery and identify the need for maintenance and/or repair of dry gas seals
  • the ability to contribute to organisational growth through reduced maintenance and repair costs
  • the required understanding of international standards and benchmarks of safety and operations to ensure that the seals are used as intended
  • an enhanced skill set and capabilities to work with dry gas seals in any industry, thus not feeling restricted to one industry alone

Training Methodology

All courses at Zoe Talent Solutions are highly customisable to suit the intended audience. Thus, before the commencement of each training program, the course content is thoroughly reviewed, keeping in mind the professional and/or academic backgrounds of the training audience. A highly experienced professional from the relevant domain delivers the training using audio-visual presentations. Trainee participation is ensured through group activities, role-plays, etc. Relevant case studies are also discussed with the trainees.

This innovative, unique approach to training invented by Zoe Talent Solutions is called the Do–Review–Learn–Apply Model.
