The article "Improving Equipment Uptime - Composite Seals Meet the Challenge" appeared in the October 2009 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
In an industrial application, equipment uptime is vital for on-time performance and profitability. The rotating members of industrial machines are subject to the highest degree of wear and are more susceptible to failure than non-moving parts. Bearing surfaces are the most critical and often the most expensive portion of the rotary assembly; it is imperative to protect these components. The primary protector of these components is the industrial seal.
