SEALS FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS
The primary functions of rotary shaft seals for most applications are to retain the bearing lubricant and to avoid leakage that may cause environmental issues, and to enhance the performance and life of the bearing by minimizing dirt, dust, product, moisture and water ingress that leads to damage and premature failure of the bearing and other system components.
Higher pressures and/or speeds result in high thermal and frictional loads acting on the dynamic sealing areas of rotary seals and can lead to premature seal failure. Therefore, special attention must be paid to the selection of a suitable seal design and appropriate seal material.
Our rotary seals and radial lip seals are designed to seal fluids, gases, oil, grease, oil mist, vacuum or other media on rotating equipment, including rotating or oscillating shafts, rods, tubes or bores. We offer rotary seals specially designed for applications, including:
- High- and medium-pressure sealing
- Low friction and low energy consumption
- Low torque
- Dry run
- Poor or no lubrication
- High temperature
- High surface speeds
- Shaft misalignment
- Corrosive and aggressive media
