Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation Method for Mechanical Seal Risk Assessment of Centrifugal Pumps
A failure analysis of mechanical seals of centrifugal pumps was presented with fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method. Both failure probability and failure consequence were analyzed to evaluate the risk grade of the mechanical seals. The potential risk level of a mechanical seal was estimated by the application of risk matrix. The proposed fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method can be used to judge the reliability of mechanical seals and provide an important reference for the safe and stable operation of centrifugal pumps.
