Stern Tube Seals by Simplex – Lip-Types
Simplex-Compact SC 2000 stern tube seals set the industry standard today. Our seals are designed for oil-lubricated propeller shaft bearings and must achieve two important things: prevent the leakage of oil into the engine room or water and keep water out of the stern tube.
Simplex stern tube seals comply with industry classification requirements and are type-approved by all major classification societies. As such, they are designed to withstand the following conditions:
- High water pressures and high circumferential speeds
- Radial and axial shaft displacement
- Operating times of 6,000 hours and more per year
