Premium medium-pressure single-lip oil seal


Premium medium-pressure single-lip oil seal 

Medium-pressure single-lip oil seal with integrated steel reinforcement element

The dynamic seal lip is made of a premium low-friction Duralast™ material to reduce friction, heat build-up, and wear. The rubber-covered OD of the seal creates a tight seal with the housing bore.  A retaining device is recommended to hold the seal in place under pressures above 7*psi.  This seal is able to accommodate press-in fitment in housings with short axial length.  For dirty, dusty or polluted environments, our ASHP style with additional dust lip should be used.
