Lagersmit - Bulkhead Seal
The Bulkhead seal consists of aluminum divided housing parts, comprising Supreme® lip seals that are fitted on the shaft by ball chains. The lip seals can be bonded in situ, making it easy to install and do maintenance. During shaft operation the lip seals will be lifted from the inside face of the aluminum housing, because of the circumferential force, being free from wear. To ensure proper lubrication at start-up and at slower speeds, the seals are pre-lubricated with silicon spray. In case of larger bulkhead passages for penetrating shaft flanges, a passage flange ring is available on which the bulk head seal can be installed. Lagersmit also provides gas tight bulk head seals at request. Safety on board should always be a priority. The Supreme Bulkhead seal is generally used to prevent flooding of the bulkhead seal’s adjacent compartments in the unlikely event of an accident.
