For many years, I worked with a device called a “mechanical seal” – kind of a large and expensive version of the seal in your automobile water pump. I’ve been intrigued by these devices ever since I first saw one in the early 1970s. Some people have even said that mechanical seals were more like my hobby than my job.
In retirement (3 years now!), I’m still interested in mechanical seals and have put (much of) what I know on a web site: “SealFAQs”. Although my web site is not finished (and may never be), I’ve decided to announce it and open it to the public: SealFAQs.com .
Really, I’m just bragging but SealFAQs was a lot of work. If you happen to be or know someone who deals with centrifugal pumps or mechanical seals, please tell them to check out SealFAQs.com.
