HSS seals for metals

Reinforced, all-rubber protection for big bearings

Providing the stiffness of a cotton fiber-reinforced seal with none of the drawbacks, HSS seals for metals deliver robust, proven protection for large-size bearings in mill stands.  

Fabric-reinforced rubber seals can allow multiple leakage paths and entry points for water, scale, and other contaminants. They can also shrink when exposed to moisture or water, further increasing the risk of leaks, and eventually, bearing and roll neck failures. All-rubber HSS seals eliminate these fabric-related risks, providing mills with a cost-effective, easy-to-install sealing solution. 

Optimized, fabric-free design

Featuring a high performance sealing lip design, HSS seals are available in a range of rubber materials, including NBR, HNBR and FKM. A harder grade rubber material at the outside diameter makes HSS seals more resistant to high temperatures and wear, and provides improved stability during operation and installation. An extremely smooth outer diameter surface enables excellent static sealing and accommodates housing bore imperfections.
