Rotary shaft seals. also known as oil seals, play a pivotal role in protecting machinery by preventing corrosives, moisture, abrasives and other harmful material from getting in. The seals squeeze around the rotary shaft and help to keep a layer of lubricant between the shaft and the bearings. They prevent the lubricant from escaping and causing potentially costly and disruptive damage to the machinery.
Rotary shaft seals are used in a whole host of applications across a wide range of industries, including automotive, manufacturing and power transmission. You can find them in machinery such as heavy-duty industrial gearboxes or steel rolling mills. In fact, they are usually vital components in almost every type of machine and vehicle imaginable.
Many rotary shaft seals rely on a special spring acting on the lip seal to help them perform their vital function. To keep machinery in its best possible condition, the springs within a rotary shaft will sometimes need to be replaced. This prevents the rotary shaft from becoming contaminated or damaged. In some arduous environments, in particular where the seal is keeping foreign matter out rather than oils in the equipment it can be advantageous to replace the springs with stainless steel ones to further enhance the lifespan of the seal and equipment.
