Oil seals - often called grease, fluid or dirt seals - close spaces between stationary and moving components in mechanical equipment, helping prevent lubricant escape. They also stop harmful contaminants from entering machinery, particularly in severe environments. Vital components of practically every type of machine and vehicle in operation, oil seals protect all types of precision-constructed, close-fitting ball, sleeve and roller bearings.
Oil and Grease Seals provide the necessary retention of fluids in motors, gearboxes, power transmission systems by preventing those fluids from escaping and leaking into components that may become damaged by additional lubricants.
In precision bearings, oil seals help prevent lubricants from escaping the bearings or a specific area. In machine components, oil seals help prevent abrasives, corrosive moisture and other harmful contaminants from entering machinery. They also help stop inter mixture of two different mediums, such as lubricating oil and water.
Typically oil seals are used to create a resistant barrier around a rotating shaft and provide the ultimate protection from external dirt intrusion while retaining a small amount of oil lubricant within the components and on the shaft.
Oil and grease seals feature precision sealing designs that are matched to many original equipment or aftermarket applications.
The seals help ensure consistent and reliable performance.
They come in single lip, double lip, triple lip and wiper lip designs and in materials like viton, silicone, nitrile rubber, EPDM, metal covered rubber.
The seals are used in a full range of equipment in thousands of applications, such as
