Rotary Oil Seals
Rotary shaft seals, radial shaft seals or oil seals are used to seal rotary applications such as a shaft or rotating bore. Many early designs would consist of a leather sealing lip in conjunction with a garter spring and are still used today for some applications. However, as sealing technology has advanced, the majority of modern day rotary shaft seals utilise an elastomeric sealing lip in conjunction with a garter spring.
Rotary shaft seals are used throughout the automotive industry, power transmission and general industry in many diverse applications. Wherever a bearing is used there will in most cases be a rotary shaft seal of some type to seal the bearing and prevent the ingress of dirt, water and other contaminants.
Our rotary shaft seals are available in a selection of materials. Rotary shaft seals with elastomeric based lips include Nitrile (NBR), Fluorocarbon (FKM), Hydrogenated Nitrile (HNBR), Ethylene Propylene (EPDM), Polyacrylate (ACM), Silicone (VMQ) and Neoprene (CR).Technical Information
