Benefits of Chesterton fluid sealing solutions
In partnership with Chesterton, FITT Resources provides comprehensive service and support for water treatment and wastewater plants, and work with operators to deliver greater equipment longevity and durability.
Our range of Chesterton fluid sealing products includes seals for pumps, mixers, agitators and valves, as well as hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. We also supply lubricants and MRO products, industrial coatings for concrete and metal, along with wireless monitoring capability for critical equipment.
Reduce maintenance costs and extended uptime
Chesterton mechanical seals, rotary seals and packing products are designed to deliver lower maintenance costs and extended uptime for water industry operators. In particular, they can extend the life and efficiency of ageing plant, equipment and infrastructure, which is a constant challenge confronting the wastewater industry in Australia.
Lower water and energy consumption
Chesterton active throat bushing technology is designed to remove particle from pump stuffing boxes and away from packing and mechanical seals, increasing the operating life of seals. Used in conjunction with SpiralTrac seal protection technology, Chesterton sealing deices can also eliminate flush water consumption while maintaining operating reliability.
Predictive maintenance reduces costs and downtime
The Chesterton Connect Pump Monitoring System enables the ongoing monitoring of processes and operating conditions, including equipment vibration, surface and process temperature, and process pressure. Predictive maintenance can produce substantial savings by reducing downtime and unnecessary repair costs.
Improve workplace safety
Chesterton split seals that can be installed without the need for large equipment disassembly, and packing options require fewer adjustments. This not only saves hours of labour and reduces downtime, but also reduces the exposure of personnel to operating equipment, mitigating the risk of workplace injuries.
