Turcon® Varilip® PDR
Turcon® Varilip® PDR (Performance, Durability, Reliability) rotary shaft seals are constructed from one or multiple Turcon® PTFE based sealing elements which are mechanically retained in a precision machined metal body. The metal body gives a robust static seal against the housing, preventing thermal cycling, while the Turcon® sealing element provides positive dynamic sealing on the shaft, leading to excellent performance at high rotary speeds. Characterized by low friction and stick-slip-free running, the seal reduces temperature generation, permits higher peripheral speeds and lowers power consumption. This results in a long-service life, with maximized mean time between planned maintenance and greater productivity.
