Different Types Of Shaft Seal For Many Applications

A shaft seal functions like other kinds of mechanical seals. There is an inner surface that is in contact with a face (usually an enclosure of the machine) and an external face that usually extends to the outside along that length, which is sealed. Between these two faces is an outer packing box or gland which is the term used by engineers or, in the case of many contemporary seals an interlocking component consisting of elastomer and rotors, which is joined to the inner face, creating the seal.

It is common to find shaft sealing in nearly every processing and manufacturing environment in which seals for screw conveyors are used, from food processing to refineries that refine gypsum to manufacturing by other manufacturers to factories that manufacture or pack personal health products.

They reduce the amount of waste and product contamination by stopping the leakage of oil and lubricants, as well as preventing the possibility of damaging packaging for products by ensuring that the shaft is securely in place, while simultaneously reducing friction, which results in high amounts of heat.

They make it easier to perform maintenance and allow a range of items to be made more efficient and at a lower cost in addition to extending the life span of packaging machines, conveyors as well as other automated equipment used in the manufacturing process.

Companies that employ non-standard machinery (generally made to fit the specific requirements of their manufacturing process) and custom shaft seals are made available that are able to fit the machinery of their choice and stop the loss of nearly any material such as slurries, powders pastes, fluids or even gas.
