DualPac® 2212 Packing the Go-To Choice for Upgrades in Paper
Chesterton products – Chesterton DualPac® Packing Technology
A pump repair facility wanted to upgrade vacuum pumps that are mainly used in the paper industry. They found that seal failure, in 70% of cases, was the most common reason for pump repairs. This failure was caused by leaking pumps, and so they turned to Chesterton DualPac® 2212 to get the job done and increase MTBF.
Products featured in this case study:
A pump repair facility in Europe wanted to upgrade vacuum pumps that are mainly used in the paper industry. They found that seal failure was their most common reason (70% of the cases) for pump repairs. This is often because the bearings get damaged from leaking water. A bearing set can cost $600 US ($773.91 AUD) on this type of equipment. Sometimes inexpensive packing is used by the customer and the pump lasts only two-to-three months.
The customer switched to Chesterton DualPac® 2212 packing.
The DualPac® packing is lasting considerably longer than conventional packing. The repair house is now using DualPac® 2212 packing for all their vacuum pumps.
