Change Of State

CHANGE OF STATE C030

Refers to a fluid changing its form from a liquid to:

  • A gas
  • A viscous fluid
  • A solid
  • A crystal

If this change takes place between the lapped seal faces, or in the stuffing box area it can cause a premature seal failure.

We generally apply environmental controls in the stuffing box to prevent this change from taking place.
