Heavy Duty Rotary Seals
Heavy duty rotary seals play a critical role in a wide range of heavy duty industrial applications, ranging from steel and aluminium processing through to mining and tunnelling. They are utilised in a wide range of oscillating or rotating parts, preventing the ingress of mud and water while keeping lubrication fluids from escaping.
Seals are commonly manufactured in NBR, HNBR and FPM compounds to suit a wide range of operational and ambient conditions. Seal geometries are available which can withstand pressures up to 5 Bar and peripheral speeds up to 40m/s. Seals can be supplied split and jointed on site if required.
Key Benefits of Heavy Duty Rotary Seals
- Reduces operational downtime through a decrease in unscheduled maintenance events
- Eliminates leakage and contamination of bearing lubricant, as well as the need for shaft removals for speed of fitting
- Improves lifetime of bearings and general operational performance
Our team of sealing engineers provide a consultancy service to identify the precise sealing requirements of your heavy duty application, before proposing a solution able to resist the temperatures, pressures and media compatibility issues faced in that environment.
