Wind turbine main bearing lip seal with integrated anti‑contamination lip
The DL variant of our Walkersele X-Gen D10 seal adds an integral anti-contamination lip to the proven benefits of James Walker’s latest generation rotary seal for large diameter wind turbine applications. This specialised fingerspring energised design is specifically optimised for the sealing of the main bearings of the very largest wind turbines and can cope with dynamic radial eccentricities of up to +/- 3 mm (1/8").
By combining the primary lubricant sealing function with protection against the ingress of environmental contaminants in a single seal profile this integrated design simplifies the bearing sealing configuration, reduces component count and saves space / weight by simplifying the design of housing required.
