Dryer shaft seals

March 26, 2003


Woodex Bearing Company, Inc. introduced fully-split dryer shaft seals that offer complete containment of dry powders and bulk solids on dryers and other rotating equipment where traditional packings cannot seal. Fully split seals simplify and speed installation and maintenance without disturbing the bearing or drive assembly.

According to the manufacturer, the seals can reduce vacuum dryer cycle time by up to 50 percent by holding the vacuum and are designed to accommodate 1ΒΌ4 -inch of total runout or misalignment.
