Oil Seals

Oil seals or shaft seals are an integral part in any rotating and moving part assembly. Oil seals find great deal of usage in gearboxes, hydraulic cylinders, etc. The usage of the seals in areas concerned with motion also earns them a name of “Dynamic Oil Seals." The purpose of the oil seals is

  • To act as a physical barrier retaining the lubricating oil where it is bound to be.
  • To prevent thelubricating oil from leaking outside even under high pressure of the oil.
  • To act as a barrier and prevent dirt, contamination and other external entities from entering the system containing the lubricating oil.
