Abstract

The mechanical seals used in centrifugal pumps can fail, requiring the removal of the pump for maintenance. Pump failures cost Phillips 66 additional production time, making it paramount that mechanical seals are functioning properly upon installation. Our objective is to design an apparatus that Phillips 66 can use to test whether their mechanical seals will hold pressure after being installed, without pulling the volute from the field.
