The Centrifugal Pump with Stuffing Box online training course covers a pump design that, in spite of the modern mechanical seal, remains widely used in industry due to its cost-effectiveness and ability to avoid catastrophic failure. This feature makes it an ideal design for fire departments in fire pump applications.  This centrifugal pump training course explains the installation, function, and maintenance of a centrifugal pump with a stuffing box. Additional topics include: how to troubleshoot this pump design; what the flow/pressure characteristics of a centrifugal pump are; and how to startup and operate a centrifugal pump with a stuffing box.

What is a Stuffing Box?

Stuffing box seals are the original type of seal used in centrifugal pumps and were widely used until mechanical seals were developed in the 1930s. Centrifugal pumps with stuffing boxes perform the same function as any centrifugal pump, converting the energy of a prime mover into fluid flow through a piping system.

A stuffing box is a cavity in the pump casing that surrounds the shaft and is packed with a braided fiber called packing. This packing controls the amount of fluid that leaks out through the shaft opening. This is one of the simplest types of seals used.
