    Q – Frick Screw Compressors Seals Failing – Experience with resolving this issue?

    A – We do not experience many shaft seal problems on Frick compressors under normal circumstances. When we have had seal problems it was usually related to excessive operating temperatures, improper lubrication of the seal faces, high particle count in the oil or excessive clearance in the axial or radial bearings.
