We’ve written a number of posts on our blog about mechanical seal failure and why it happens. But one thing we haven’t really discussed is what happens to a centrifugal pump when a seal fails.
Mechanical seal failure has an effect on many different parts of a pump, including the pump shaft. To find out how seal failure affects the pump shaft, I talked to one of our most experienced service technicians.
If a mechanical seal has failed and damaged the pump shaft, it’s best to just replace it. Continuing to use a damaged shaft or sleeve will cause more issues down the road, and will most certainly become a more costly repair.
Mechanical seal failures causing problems beyond just the seal? Ask us about it! We gladly provide technical assistance to business and municipalities in Wisconsin and upper Michigan.
