Radial lip seal joining method for on‑site joining without the requirement for equipment strip‑down.
Walkersele OSJ offers the best of both worlds, combining the ease and maintenance economies of split seal assembly with the fluid sealing performance of an endless seal.
The many user benefits of Walkersele OSJ include:
Where reasonable access can be gained to the shaft and housing the original OSJ-2 system is the ideal option for on-site seal replacement.
We offer a full fitting service for Walkersele OSJ-2 or can train your own engineers to fit these seals. For customers fitting their own, a fitting guide is available.
Where access to the shaft and housing is restricted for whatever reason, we have developed the alternative OSJ-D fitting option.
Although the basic principles involved in the joining of the seal ends remain the same, a number of innovations have been made around the jig and clamping tool.
The new clamping blocks allow the seal to be successfully joined without being supported on a shaft. They hold the seal ends in place whilst bonding takes place where the use of the metal clamping band being applied around the outside of the seal to pull the seal together is not possible due to lack of access.
This new adaptation of the OSJ method allows the seal to be joined and then manoeuvred into its housing even in cases where access may only be available through small inspection or access hatches.
We offer a full fitting service for Walkersele OSJ-D or can train your own engineers to fit these seals. For customers fitting their own, a fitting guide is available.
As with any seal, correct fitting is essential if the seal is to operate correctly and provide a full and reliable lifespan.
The OSJ fitting process is simple and although it can be carried out by your own maintenance and engineering personnel, James Walker is able to offer support if required, including:
