Walkersele X-Gen

Walkersele X-GenAdvanced Walkersele® technology for large diameter shaft and bearing sealing in the wind industry.

James Walker’s latest advances in Walkersele rotary sealing technology offer a new patented glass-reinforced seal construction with new lip profiles and spring formations, specifically designed to meet the demands of the wind industry.

This will provide the necessary assistance required to accommodate eccentricity/deflection and maintain a constant lip load at all points on the circumference allowing maximum sealing capability for increased levels of offset from loaded bearings and out-of-round shafts and housings.
