A Rotary Shaft seal is an excellent rotating seal for applications involving high temperatures, speeds and pressures, both in relation to liquids and corrosive gases. Rotary Shaft seals are used frequently in the mechanical engineering and chemical industries: centrifuges, pumps, mixers, compressors and gearboxes, for example. Another of its advantages is that it works well in cases of poor lubrication or dry conditions.
Rotary Shaft seals are composed of an SS304 or SS316 stainless steel housing and a white PTFE FDA or a black PTFE/ Fiberglass / MoS2 lip. They also feature a fluoroelastomer reinforcement. Due to all these characteristics, rotary shaft seals work well in cases of poor lubrication or dry conditions.
