Roto Variseal and Roto Glyd Ring

Turcon® Variseal® and Turcon® Glyd Ring® for rotary situations 

Turcon® Roto Variseal® and Turcon® Roto Glyd Ring® have been specially adapted for rotary situations.

The Turcon® Roto Variseal®, with its V shaped ring, has a flanged heel which prevents the seal from rotating in the groove.

Turcon Rotary Shaft Seals

Turcon® Varilip® PDR

Turcon® Varilip® PDR (Performance, Durability, Reliability) rotary shaft seals are constructed from one or multiple Turcon® PTFE based sealing elements which are mechanically retained in a precision machined metal body. The Turcon® sealing element provides positive dynamic sealing on the shaft, while the metal body gives a robust static seal against the housing, performing effectively at high rotary speeds. Characterized by low friction and stick-slip-free running, the seal reduces temperature generation, permits higher peripheral speeds and lowers power consumption. This results in a long-service life, with maximized mean time between planned maintenance and greater productivity.

Benefits of Turcon® Varilip® PDR include:

 Turcon® PTFE based sealing lip

  • Low-friction to facilitate reduced power loss and friction-induced heat
  • Unique self-lubricating hydrodynamic feature further reduces friction
  • Advanced geometries engineered to give excellent performance in almost every high-speed rotary situation
  • Multiple lip configurations to address most sealing needs
  • Material compatible with virtually all media
  • Available in FDA-compliant grades

Metal body

  • Durability in harsh environments
  • Effective sealing on static outer diameter
  • Resistance to thermal cycling
  • Choice of high-quality metals including stainless steel, aluminum and other specialized metals such as Hastelloy® or Titanium
  • High corrosion-resistance
  • Superior precision-machined finish for improved sealing on the static interface
