Low-friction seals for housings

Reduced friction for reduced energy consumption

SNL plummer block housings can be outfitted with the following low-friction seals to cut energy consumption:

Labyrinth seals

Extremely effective for high rotational speeds, labyrinth seals operate with no contact between the shaft and the housing components. Absence of seal friction results in lower operating temperature and reduced energy consumption.

TSN .. L contact seals
For fan applications with speeds up to 13 m/s, TSN ..L contact seals offer a low-energy solution. They generate little friction, resulting in low power loss and reduced energy consumption. Lower running temperatures also help extend grease service life.
