The Effect of Operating Parameters Upon Radial Lip Seal Performance 841145
Radial lip seals are used throughout industry in a variety of applications that operate at widely varying conditions. These operating conditions can vary from high speed shaft rotation with a light oil mist to very low speeds in muddy environments. Variations in these operating conditions will affect seal performance.
Studies have been made to determine how variations in sump temperature, sump pressure, shaft speed, eccentric misalignment and fluid type affect lip temperature, torque, power consumption and seal life.
