In the oil and gas industry, efficiency, reliability and safety are of paramount importance, in upstream oil and gas solutions as well as delivery systems. In today’s oil and gas landscape, not only is the demand for energy on the rise, but so is the desire for increasingly innovative and sustainable solutions. To meet these requirements, oil and gas equipment must operate at peak performance. This means contaminant-free operation, with systems running to spec in terms of lubricant levels, temperature, moisture levels, throughput and more.
Deficiencies in any of these areas can lead to contaminated product, lengthy repair times, rising maintenance costs and increased material spend. Reliable bearing seals are a critical component in meeting these needs, better ensuring consistent operation while protecting equipment and product alike.
Benefits of ISOMAG Oil and Gas Bearing Seals
Bearing seals are designed to keep lubricant from escaping rotating parts, as well as to keep contaminants from entering equipment. Faulty bearing seals can lead to equipment damage, rising temperature and moisture levels, introduction of contaminants, and oil or gas leaks. Each of these scenarios will drive up operating costs for equipment, repairs, cleanup and lost time — as well as potential regulatory risks if environmental leaks or spills occur.
Typical lip mount bearing seals are subject to failure at any time, due to their direct mounting to the shaft in a rotating part. This configuration leads to almost immediate wear and tear, with potential damage to equipment as well as to the lip-mount seal itself — often requiring replacement in just a few months.
ISOMAG magnetic-face seals are designed to work differently. With a contactless design that rotates along with the shaft, ISOMAG oil and gas seals can last for up to 75,000 service hours, with vastly reduced wear and tear, extended time between oil changes, and an exponential increase in performance and reliability.
