Upgrades & Life Extension
Many compressors still run with oil-type seals at the shaft ends, like bushing seals or mechanical seals, which leak and are inefficient.
Today, converting to dry gas seal technology is an industry best practice.
There are significant advantages to convert to dry gas seals, even though oil-type seals can still function properly at times.
These advantages include very low gas leakages and losses, and an overall simpler system than a conventional oil system.
Feasibility studies on seal conversions are performed to identify the most economical solution for your compressor.
