The WAO is a single-action rotary shaft seal for rotating or pivoting shafts. The sealing lip design without a spring produces less friction. As a result, the sealing action in comparison to rotary shaft seals with energised springs is reduced. The elastomer outer sheath provides good static sealing, good thermal expansion balance e.g. in light-metal housings, better sealing with greater roughness and secure sealing for split housings as well as good static sealing with thin fluid or gaseous media.
The nominal widths mentioned on the following pages represent the standard dimensions. They are generally in stock or can be delivered at short notice. Other dimensions and different designs, e.g. double dust protection lip, spiral on the sealing lip, springs or metal inserts made of other steel grades can be produced as well as all kinds of special designs. Minimum quantities may be obligatory for dimensions outside of the standard.
