MP52/53A Series for API 682 Plans 52 and 53A
The MP52 series aligns with API 682 Plans 52 and 53A. It supports liquid buffer fluid for a containment seal chamber that is at a lower pressure than the primary seal chamber.
Our seal reservoirs are built to ASME Section VIII standards and are available with ASME U code stamps. Flexaseal Engineered Seals and Systems, LLC provides standard and custom buffer fluid reservoirs that meet API 682 Standards.

How it Works
How Does a Seal Pot Work?
According to API 682 Seal Plan 52, a non-pressurized reservoir system is a protective buffer between the product and the surrounding atmosphere. Several seal systems are used to isolate toxic fluids/gases that, when exposed to the atmosphere, can change state. For this reason, buffer fluid is circulated between the inner and outer seal chambers with a circulating pump.
The MP52/53A Reservoir (Pot) provides buffer fluid to the secondary seal for lubrication under normal operations and serves as an overflow for process fluid in a failure scenario. The reservoir can also be equipped with level, pressure, and temperature instrumentation to provide real-time process feedback on mechanical seal health.
