6.2.4 Mechanical seals
The current maintenance is limited to seal control.
It is necessary to detect any small leakage which
announces the beginning of the deterioration of
friction faces or secondary seal elements (rings,
bellows, synthetic membranes).
It is advisable to stop the pump as soon as
possible. Have an approved seal vendor replace or
repair the seal.
6.2.5 Internal coating
If the pump has an internal coating, this coating
must be inspected periodically.
Any wear or cracks of the coating found must be
immediately repaired. Failure to do this may lead
to accelerated wear of the coating during operation
and corrosion of the exposed base metal,
depending on the material and pumped liquid.
Special attention must be paid to the coating
Any loss of coating material is considered to be
normal wear and tear on the pump and is not
considered as warranty.
Flowserve has applied the coatings according to
the supplier's instructions but will not be held
responsible for coating wear or cracks that may
develop over time.
6.3 Spare parts

Flowserve keeps records of all pumps that have
been supplied. When ordering spares the following
