Shaft Seals

Product unavailable
Shaft Seals and Rotary seals are used in components with oscillating or rotating parts to keep lubrication fluids in while preventing ingress of Dirt, Dust and water helping to improve component life and long term performance. Typically designed using a sealing lip made of an elastomeric or thermoplastic material that seals dynamically and statically against the shaft, with a defined radial load, generated by a garter spring.

Shaft Seals are available in a wide range of styles and designs and are commonly referred to as radial oil seal, rotary shaft seals, radial and axial lip seals, double-acting O-Ring energized Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) rotary seals for shaft and bore, rubber V-Rings, mechanical face seals, heavy duty seals amongst others.
