Systems API Plan 54

API Plan 54

In Plan 54, there is a pressurized external barrier fluid system
supplying clean liquid to the barrier fluid seal chamber. The barrier
liquid is maintained at a pressure greater than seal chamber pressure.
Barrier liquid is circulated by an external pump or pressure system.

Advantages:

  • Self-contained process fluid
  • Zero emissions
  • Seal cannot induce circulation

Applications:

  • Used with dual pressure seals
  • High vapour pressure fluids (light hydrocarbons)
  • Hazardous fluids
  • Toxic fluids
  • Heat transfer fluids
  • Dirty, abrasive, or polymerizing fluids
  • Mixers or agitators

Note

Use the STB NSE-54 for better operating conditions.

NSE 54

Designed especially for mechanical seals in high pressure surroundings, where an interruption of the barrier fluid is not allowed. These backfeed systems are designed to supply many mechanical seal support system or a number of mechanical seals by only one system. Over the past years, these types of systems have shown in field, to increase the lifetime of mechanical seals heavily.
