In general, what could be the potential causes for the process fluid contaminating the barrier fluid regardless of how high the barrier pressure differential. The seal chamber pressure is monitored and does not vary much, the barrier pressure is always maintained higher, but when the barrier fluid is inspected, it is always contaminated!
Anybody experience this too?
