Chesterton 53K seals are high-performance radial seals for heavy duty, dynamic rotary seal applications. These seals provide long-lasting sealing and protective solutions that withstand high speed and large misalignment of shafts and rolls in heavy industry.
The 53K represents advanced technology: Combined finger and garter springs in combination with high performance elastomers, which outlass the conventional radial oil seals in the most difficult applications. The outer metal case of 53K is cold pressed. The elastomer part is manufactured by compression molding technology that is vulcanized to the metal case which provides very tight dimensional, geometrical tolerances.
The unique design with a flat outer metal case ensures improved fitting in the seal cavity and an improved centric position. Additionally, this design allows installation in stuffing boxes without end covers.
According to industrial standards sizing, the 53K is a direct retrofit, which eliminates the need of equipment modification. The 53K is offered in different designs based on application requirements.
Typical Applications: High speed gear drives, high speed back-up rolls in cold mills, work rolls in hot and cold mills, aluminum foil mills, paper machines, cement plants, power plants
