FSA’s Mechanical Seals Division Activity

The FSA’s Mechanical Seals Division met in Pittsburgh, PA on October 24, 2019, to discuss content and functionality of the FSA’s KnowledgeBase, as well as ways to further promote this important industry resource (http://fsaknowledgebase.org). Webinars for the KnowledgeBase are being created. Work is continuing on the Life Cost Calculators for Pumps and Valve Packings. This division is also actively collaborating with other associations, including Hydraulic Institute and the European Sealing Association. Members were updated on industry standards, including ISO/ASME 14414 – Pump system energy assessment, 3A Sanitary Standard, and EHEDG Document 25.
