Limited space

In many cases, the available space is insufficient for a radial shaft seal having dimensions in accordance with ISO 6194-1 or DIN 3670. In these situations, special radial shaft seal designs must be used (fig 1).
V-rings (fig 2) are also suitable for applications with limited space because they can be positioned outside the actual seal position. V-rings seal axially by exerting light pressure against the counterface that can be a stationary or rotating machine component.
In applications with large shaft diameters, HS8 seals are an appropriate choice when space is limited (fig 3).
