PTFE Rotary Shaft Seals - PTFE Lip Seals - Best Choice
PTFE Rotary Shaft Seals (PTFE lip seals) are often used in applications where traditional elastomer solutions would be unable to deliver the required level of performance.
Equipment which is required to operate with high pressures, high speeds or that requires a dry running rotary seal, can often only be accommodated by using products where the seal lips are manufactured from the latest filled PTFE polymer technology.
Several standard ranges of PTFE lip seals are available to cover a broad range of applications. In the case of very demanding or extreme applications, a custom designed solution may present the best opportunity to deliver the required level of performance.
PTFE shaft seals are the perfect choice in applications where the operational parameters are too severe for tradional elastomer solutions.
High shaft speeds, oil free operation, high pressure, long life and low friction are some of the parameters which align perfectly with the performance characteristics of the PTFE seals manufactured by ElringKlinger Engineered Plastics. With a comprehensive range of standard "off the shelf" seals to cover a wide range of applications, ElringKlinger Engineered Plastics is also specialized in custom solutions which are often produced to offer a "no compromise" solution to specific set of operational parameters.
