High-Performance Rotary Shaft Seals – Rotaflon™ Series
For sealing dynamic, rotary motion
Examples of a high-performance rotary shaft seal installation
AHP Seals’ high-performance Rotaflon™ rotary shaft seals are designed for rotary applications where the operating conditions exceed the capabilities of elastomeric rubber lip seals, where extended seal life is required or where mechanical seals are too costly Rotaflon™ High-performance rotary shaft seals are designed for:
- Dry-run, limited lubrication
- Medium and high pressure, vacuum
- Low friction under load
- Low torque and low energy consumption
- High surface speeds up to 10,000fpm (50m/s)
- Shaft eccentricity (seal designs with spring)
- Harsh and aggressive environments
- FDA compliance
All of our high-performance Rotaflon™ rotary seals feature a PTFE/Teflon® composite or other highly engineered polymer material for the dynamic running surface of the seal lip to meet the most challenging rotary sealing applications.
Our Rotaflon™ High-Performance Rotary Seals are classified as follows:
*Maximum values depend on seal material, seal configuration, media, temperatures, pressures, surface speed and working environment. Data provided are guidelines for ideal operating conditions. Seals cannot be operated at their upper pressure and speed ratings at the same time. For maximum seal life expectancy, do not operate your seal beyond 75% of any of its operating limits. Seals cannot be operated at their upper pressure and speed ratings at the same time.
