Simplex Sterntube seals

The Simplex seals have set standards in the shipping industry and, after almost 60 years, remain at the cutting edge of sterntube seal technology.

The spectrum of applications for Simplex seals is practically unlimited and many different versions are available to meet every need, be it for jumbo container carriers or luxury yachts, cruise liners or inland waterway vessels, submarines or supertankers.

The figures bear ample witness to the global success of the Simplex seals: since 1948, approximately 50,000 seals have been installed in all types of vessels worldwide.

Thanks to their utmost reliability, they protect the environment at the same time. For instance, the Simplex Lip ring seal with Airspace-technology helps to ensure absolute separation of seawater and sterntube oil.

The comprehensive range of Simplex seals is rounded off by intermediate shaft bearings, sterntube bushes as well as the Simplex FlexiTube and SternTube, packages which includes bearings, seals and bushes as complete turnkey solutions.
