API 682 - Plan 12 Flush with Strainer
The purpose of the API Plan 12 is to:
- prevent orifice clogging
- remove heat from the seal chamber and ensure it has the proper pressure to prevent vaporizing
- allow self-venting in the seal chamber when used for horizontal pumps
Our API Plan 12 solution consists of components all immediately available and easy to install. Our simple component solution offers a significant weight reduction, lower installation cost and much less welding. Best of all it is operator friendly because the gauges allow you to know if the filter is clogged so you are protecting the seal from particulate. Bypass and isolation options are also available to keep your system running during filter change-outs.
Eliminating pipe cuts down the number of connections in your system while reducing installation time so you can keep more labor in-house, not having to farm out complex work.
Trust the tube fitting experts to make sure you have the right solution for your unique application. Don’t risk unplanned downtime with your current setup.
The transition is simple, and we can help customize.
