Series 2: Troubleshooting and Failure Analysis

All sealing product failures can be prevented. It’s hard to believe, but it’s true! In our first webinar series focused on selection and installation, we learned about the importance of reviewing the service conditions (STAMPS) and proper installation. Knowing that issues do arise from time to time with the performance of a sealing product, it’s important to evaluate and understand why it happened. Was it the product? Was it the equipment? Was it the installation? What should I be looking for?

In these sessions we will take an in-depth look at real examples of products that “failed”, what the causes(s) were, what those causes look like and how to avoid or correct them to prevent future performance issues.
