LIP SEALS

Dynamic Lip Seal Single Double Acting + Dustlip

Accofluor PTFE lip rotary shaft seals push beyond the limits of traditional elastomer radial shaft seals. By leveraging advanced materials and innovative design techniques, these seals deliver optimal sealing performance for various applications, while maintaining a compact seal profile.

Standard elastomeric rotary shaft seals face limitations in terms of temperature, surface speed, media compatibility, and pressure. Additionally, they often struggle in applications with insufficient lubrication due to the inherent constraints of different elastomer grades. In contrast, Accofluor PTFE lip seals are notable for their low friction and stick-slip-free operation, which reduces heat generation and allows for higher peripheral speeds.

A key feature of Accofluor’s PTFE compounds is its inherent memory, enabling a distorted PTFE component to revert to its original shape from the sintering cycle of its manufacturing process. This characteristic ensures the necessary radial load of the sealing lip on the shaft, eliminating the need for the energizing spring used in elastomeric seal designs.

Applications Examples:

  • Rotary Applications
  • Transmission Axle systems
  • Trucks and Trailers
  • Sports cars
  • Pumps and mixers
  • For use at low-pressure and high speeds
  • No vulcanizing to mating surfaces
