Chesterton 52K seals are high performance radial seals for heavy duty, dynamic rotary seal applications. These seals provide long-lasting sealing and superior protection against ingress of solid particles, dust and fluids, protecting bearing houses and gearboxes across the heavy indiustries, even in the most hostile working environments.
High-performance elastomers provide 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 52K is manufactured by compression molding technology, that provides accurate dimensional, geometrical tolerances. The unique design with a flexible stiffener ring ensures improved fitting in the seal cavity and allows installation in stuffing boxes without end covers. A helical garter spring maintains the seal lip contact and sealing force on the shaft.
According to industrial standards sizing, the 52K is a direct retrofit, which eliminates the need of equipment modification. The 52K is offered in different designs based on application requirements.
Typical Applications: Gear drives, back-up rolls in hot and cold mills, work rolls in hot and cold mills, pulp and paper industry, pumps, wind mill applications, rotary applications in cement plants
