“Garlock 3-D Seal has significantly reduced maintenance time. The sealing system has been running to more than 1 year without any adjustment. We are now also able to control the vacuum pressure reliably and consistently. We are so satisfied with the result, we are now converting the remainder of their crystallizers (5 x units) to use the 3-D seal.”
