A noisy mechanical seal is a grave problem, especially in water pumps designed for the automotive industry. The noisiness is often caused by dynamic instability (stick-slip behavior), which occurs when the seal lubrication changes from hydrodynamic to mixed. Starting from this hypothesis, the paper shows a theoretical model that describes the interaction between the seal disks. Therefore this model correlates the acoustic emission to the working conditions of the water pump.
