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.

Type: AIGI 5505
5505 has a double split in two different locations (55 minutes and 5 minutes - on a clock face ) creating double the security and disrupting the leak path it is then locked in place with the specialized Arrowhook - creating the best engineered split bearing/lip seal on the market so that the oil or grease stays in and the dirt stays out. IF the seal wears out just take it off the shaft and put on the next one.
