Axial shaft seals
Axial shaft seals are suitable as secondary seals in applications where the primary contacting or non-contacting seals would otherwise be subjected to excessive quantities of contaminants.
Axial shaft seals are available from SKF as:
- V-ring seals
- Metal-clad V-type sealing rings and axial clamp seals
- Mechanical seals
With the exception of axial clamp seals, axial shaft seals rotate with the shaft and act as flingers. They tolerate small misalignments of the shaft with respect to the counter face and also provide reliable sealing if the shaft is out of round or rotates eccentrically.
