Oil seals (also commonly known as rotary seals, lip seals or radial shaft seals) are used to retain lubricants in a case housing, e.g. in gearboxes or oscillating applications.
Oil Seals increase the life of a bearing by preventing ingress of dirt and water; which could cause damage or premature failure of parts.
Oil Seals are available in low pressure or high pressure styles and typically in either Viton® or Nitrile, but if chemical attack is a concern, we offer a manufactured solution in materials such as H-NBR (Hydronated Nitrile) and EPDM.
Seal House stocks both metric and imperial Oil Seals in double or single lip designs.
