A typical metal bellows seal in for repair
This high temperature metal bellows seal came from a refinery service application. In most cases seal repairs make sense. In general a seal repair cost is 50% of the price of a new seal.
Half the price of a new seal
We take pride in using only the finest grades of materials. Each seal is cleaned with an ultrasonic washer, evaluated for repair, quoted (at no charge), and resorted with new faces or simply lapped and polished (if determined to have only surface wear).

Do I repair my existing seal, or do I replace it with a new seal?
To determine if it’s wise to invest in repairing your current seal or replace it with a new seal, the first question you must ask is how long did my seal last? If the seal lasted 5 or more years, it’s likely best to just repair the seal. If however the seal only lasts 6 months or less, then it’s probably the wrong seal design for the job. Mechanical seals can last 20 years, in fact, they often do in water pumps. If a seal is not holding up, it is usually due to one of 3 causes; heat, chemicals or abrasives. In some cases, an existing seal design can be upgraded in the materials of construction to be resistant to abrasives, chemicals or temperature. We can help you make that determination based on the type of mechanical seal you have.
