Understanding the Dynamic Influences of Gear Oils and Radial Shaft Seals


Approximately 40 percent of long-term gearbox leakages can be traced back to poor interaction between the Radial Shaft Seal (RSS) and the lubricant. This paper highlights the most critical interactions between the industry's most commonly used gear oil formulations, with emphasis on synthetic oils with Nitrile- and Fluoroelastomers. Through an ideal combination of base oil and additives, the demand of life expectancy on the radial shaft seals can be met.
