Rotary Seals

Walkersele radial lip seals - general rangeEvery item of rotating plant and equipment - from a lawn sprinkler to a hot steel rolling mill or hydroelectric power scheme - relies on rotary sealing systems to keep it working efficiently.

The four main points to consider are...

  • Bearing protection
  • Lubricant retenion
  • Exclusion of contaminants
  • Minimising the leakage of fluid media.

James Walker caters for these needs at every industrial level with five complete families of seals, and a patented installation technique that avoids costly dismantling.
