Seal Design Information

 

The information below is the type of information required for proper seal design. While we are not a seal manufacturer we can point you in the right direction and try to give you a general idea of how much would be involved in getting a seal made for your application (i.e. if tooling would be required, etc).

 

Please provide as much detail as you can about your application. Explain what you want the seal to accomplish (i.e. keep out water, keep in specific lubricants, seal at high speeds, etc.). Describe where the seal will be located (i.e. input shaft of a worm gear reducer). Discuss and installation challenges (i.e. blind installation, potential field installation issues)
