Seal has Silicon vs Silicon on product end. Stationary Silicon seat had cracked where it engaged an anti-rotation pin (Silicon is prone to this damage). The rotary Silicon had some pitting on lapped face. Both parts required replacing. Robco recommended upgrade to Tungsten Carbide for new stationary piece to eliminate any chipping issues. Rotary seat to stay as original Silicon. The outboard end of the mechanical seal had Carbon vs rotary Chrome coated face. The Carbon was worn and needed replacement. This repair job was carried out under emergency basis due to customer losing production. Seal was turned around in 5 business days. OEM had quoted 12 - 14 working days. Robco personnel delivered repaired seal to customer and oversaw installation and witnessed operation of seal to customers satisfaction.
