The Problem:

Pumps require a form of mechanical seal, these seals will eventually break down and leak. Determining the point of failure is achieved by routine monitoring of the seal. Seal leak can be tolerated by directing the fluid into a recovery system by use of a drain line that directs the fluid into a storage container.

How is it determined when the leak is occurring and to what degree? The Kayden CLASSIC 800 Series Flow, Level, Interface and Temperature Switch/Transmitter will help you determine whether or not to shut down the pump or send out a maintenance crew to service the mechanical seal.

The Solution:

A common “Pipeline Leak Detection” setup for No Flow Condition, Pump Protection:

  • Staff can monitor the storage container and recover the leaked fluid, however, the storage container will quickly be overwhelmed if the seal fails and floods the recovery system.
  • Monitor inside the drain to detect if there is a fluid present and if so inform the relevant party.
  • Monitor the liquid level in the drain pipe while monitoring the flow rate. It is now possible to choose both an alarm point and a shut-down point using the Kayden CLASSIC 800 Series
