Oil seals are used in machinery and are devices that prevent the passage of fluids along a rotating shaft. These seals are necessary when a shaft extends from a housing containing oil, such as a pump or a gearbox. Oil seals, or shaft seals, are an integral part in any rotating and moving part assembly. Often called grease, fluid or dirt seals they close spaces between stationary and moving components in mechanical equipment, helping prevent lubricant escape. They also stop harmful contaminants from entering machinery, particularly in severe environments. Vital components of practically every type of machine and vehicle in operation, oil seals protect all types of precision-constructed, close-fitting ball, sleeve and roller bearings.
The seals are used in a full range of equipment in thousands of applications, such as Automotive, Manufacturing, Oil refineries and Power transmission.
