  • Turning Your Partner into a Smooth Operator

Flowserve alliance program improves seal life at a Louisiana chemical plant.

Rubicon Inc.’s Geismar, La. Facility, a large chemical plant recognized that frequent seal replacements had become a costly problem. Part of the problem lay in the nature of Rubicon’s business. Chemical plants process a wide variety of materials under a wide range of conditions.

Rubicon needed a seal vendor that would do more than simply supply it with replacements, so the chemicals maker signed a five-year alliance agreement with Flowserve. When the alliance program began, there wasn’t a single Flowserve seal in the plant. As competitor seals failed, however, Flowserve replaced competitors’ products with upgraded Flowserve products that significantly lowered failure rate.

  • Boosting Cost Savings & Protecting the Environment

A uranium mining company boosts cost savings and helps protect the environment by converting to Flowserve SLC slurry mechanical seals.

Minimizing costs is always an important business strategy, and so is environmental protection – especially with the heightened awareness of emissions control and how we can all be better stewards for the environment.
When the Pregfeed pumps at Rössing Uranium Ltd., Republic of Namibia, Africa, experienced severe leakage from the gland packing, the company found a solution that took it on a voyage to slash costs and reduce its carbon footprint.
Rössing Uranium turned to Flowserve to help solve the leakage. Discover how Flowserve SLC slurry mechanical seals  are helping the company on its journey to keep down costs, improve productivity and preserve the environment in this Pages from smooth_sailing.
