Split rotary seals 

Split lip seals also known as split rotary seals work exactly the same as your conventional oil seal or bearing seal except they are design with a split allowing them to be install without dismantling the equipment, this allows you to quickly and easily replace worn or damaged lip seals , the result is less down time, significantly less labour costs and ultimately less cost of production.

Why would you need a split bearing or lip seal ? 

Precision engineered bearings are designed to last thousands of hours, perform at high speeds, high loads and temperatures but the bearing seals manufactured to protect these bearings are not and often will fail well before the bearings do and cause oil or grease to leak or worse allow dirt into this critical area.


Once the seals fail you have no choice but to strip the equipment and replace the seals , in many cases bearing are replaced as well  just because the equipment is open.
