CinchSeal is the latest development in rotary shaft seals. Rotary shaft seals are designed to prevent dirt, water and oil-resistant seals around rotary shafts. They can cope with high-pressure operations, and split seal designs makes it possible to easily remove the seal for cleaning. It is a cost-effective option over other rotary seal alternatives because it lowers material losses, reduces maintenance, and offers increased durability. Moreover, it corrects many of the issues faced by the traditional lip seal, such as:

  • Leakages
  • Fractures
  • Friction and rotary shaft damage

The seal is composed of several parts which bring together a durable and self-maintaining seal. Here we’ll examine these parts and how they benefit the sealing process.

CinchSeal parts

Stainless steel housing and plate

The metal housing is what makes Cinchseal rotary shaft seals unique. Traditional lips are composed primarily of elastomer rubber, which means that over time it loses its flexibility and can undergo irreversible changes. When this happens, the seal can break, causing serious leakages. Since the seals often have to be replaced, they waste a lot of time and money. With metal housing, CinchSeals are protected against environmental factors that can cause the elastomer to degenerate. Moreover, they are designed to have split, making assembly and removal easy.

Split PTFE rotor cups

These cups are made of aluminium coated in Teflon. They are designed to create a large and tight sealing surface. This allows the seals to withstand even the most abrasive products. Moreover, again the split design gives easy access to sanitization and cleaning.

Split elastomer cups

The elastomer cups are the primary sealing element. They can react to fast-changing temperatures or pressure. This reduces friction and can significantly reduce the cost of maintenance and downtime.
