Chesterton 50K face seals are high-performance face seals for heavy duty, dynamic rotary seal applications. These seals reduce the ingress of solid particles, dust, and fluids—protecting housing and bearing areas.
In severe applications, where exposure to external contaminants is extremely high, the 50K is used as secondary seal for additional protection in combination with other Chesterton rotary seals, which are in the primary seal position.
The unique design allows the 50K face seals to be used in a broad range of equipment across the heavy duty industries. High-performance elastomers create resistance to compression setting, wear, and aging. A broad range of engineered elastomers allow use in high and low temperature conditions and provide excellent fluid compatibility.
The 50K is manufactured by compression molding technology that provides accurate dimensional, geometrical tolerances, and improved fitting. According to industrial standards sizing, the 50K is a direct retrofit, which eliminates the need of equipment modification. The 50K is offered in different designs based on application requirements.
