Sealings - Oil retainer rings
Oil retainer rings are elements used to seal shafts in rotation motion against liquid or gaseous environments. Generally speaking, the environment that requires sealing consists of a lubricating oil or petrolatum.
They are available in different designs, dimensions and material quality according to the application they are used for.
The most important aspects we need to take in consideration when choosing an oil retainer ring are:
- sealing environment;
- shaft’s speed;
- exposure to outer filth (dust, sand, etc.)
