Course Overview

What are mechanical seals used for? Mechanical seals help systems by preventing leakage, maintaining pressure and/or excluding contamination. They are used in industrial pumps, compressors and other applications. There are various types of mechanical seals, namely, pusher, unbalanced, balanced, conventional, cartridge and non-pusher types.

They are extremely critical in the entire industrial process and play a key role in ensuring the smooth functioning of industrial operations. Thus, their maintenance is one of the key areas of focus for organisations. For the same reason, good care is taken when selecting seals, including consideration of aspects such as temperature, pressure, liquid characteristics, emission concerns, etc.

This Zoe training course will empower you with skills and extensive knowledge about mechanical seals, thus providing you information and understanding of one of the prime areas of focus of organisations. Through this course, you will understand important aspects of consideration when selecting the kind of mechanical seals to be used as per the requirement.

Furthermore, this Mechanical Seals Installation and Repair course will help you troubleshoot failures that occur, thereby demonstrating potential and skill to undertake higher responsibilities involving equipment with seals.

Course Objectives

The primary objective of this Mechanical Seals Installation and Repair training course is to empower professionals with—

  • adequate knowledge and information about mechanical seals, including tips for accurate selection, troubleshooting and maintenance
  • the required knowledge to consider all necessary aspects before procuring mechanical seals
  • the experience and exposure to troubleshoot in case of failures and quickly restore normal working conditions, thereby reducing downtimes drastically
  • the confidence and knowledge to train other professionals on mechanical seal selection, troubleshooting and maintenance
  • the required understanding and awareness to review equipment with mechanical seals and plan maintenance activities in advance to prevent excessive or irreversible wear and tear, thus contributing to organisational cost-saving
  • awareness of the most appropriate techniques for treating different types of seals to prevent unnecessary damage during maintenance
  • the overall skills and capabilities required to handle all problems related to mechanical seals, thereby specialising in mechanical seals, inviting proactive opportunities offered for growth and progression
  • the knowledge and understanding to conduct both preventive and predictive maintenance for mechanical seals, as required

Training Methodology

This Mechanical Seals Installation and Repair training course includes delivery of training content by a highly experienced professional from the relevant domain as well as self-participation and learning through role-plays, group activities and projects. Relevant and known case studies are also discussed with the training audience to ensure that trainees relate theoretical content with practical scenarios.

Furthermore, the trainer encourages trainees to discuss related challenges and hindrances they face in their current profile, and this is kept open for discussion and resolution with the entire training audience.

This approach to training has never been followed by any other organisation and has been conceptualised and created by Zoe Talent Solutions. It is called the Do–Review–Learn–Apply Model.

Organisation Benefit

By professionals registering for this Mechanical Seals Installation and Repair course, organisations will derive the following benefits:

  • Appropriate selection of mechanical seals and adequate troubleshooting and maintenance because of trained professionals overlooking these functions
  • Lesser wear and tear of mechanical seals and hence lesser purchases and reduced maintenance costs
  • Prevention of leakages and other common failures because of regular inspections to check and predict the health of seals and maintenance schedules, respectively
  • Lesser downtimes due to malfunctioning or failures in mechanical seals of equipment
  • Regular training and upskilling of employees to adopt advanced techniques and ways to work with mechanical seals
  • Selection and use of the appropriate kind of seal to suit the intended purpose of the operation
  • No costs of outsourcing maintenance checks or repair of mechanical seals because of inhouse professionals doing the same
  • Organisational growth due to reduced costs, lesser downtimes and better quality products
  • Effective risk assessment and mitigation and thus greater credibility

Personal Benefit

Professionals opting for this Mechanical Seals Installation and Repair course will derive the following benefits:

  • Complete information and knowledge of mechanical seal selection, troubleshooting and maintenance
  • Increased information and experience to choose the most appropriate seal to suit the operational requirements
  • Greater understanding of failures and issues with mechanical seals and effective troubleshooting to ensure quick recovery and repair
  • Enhanced skill and experience to mentor other professionals to work effectively and master mechanical seal selection, troubleshooting and maintenance
  • Increased ability to contribute to organisational growth through regular maintenance aimed at reducing maintenance costs and prolonging seal life
  • Greater ability and potential to contribute to outsourcing costs for maintenance and repair processes
  • Dynamic skillset and experience to assume senior roles requiring knowledge and awareness of all aspects of mechanical seals, thereby fostering progression
  • Increased understanding of the required standards and quality of operation involving equipment with mechanical seals so as to detect issues and resolve them well in time

Who Should Attend
