Why Are Isomag Bearing Isolators An Improvement Over Labyrinth Bearing Isolators?

  1. Isomag bearing seals are a positive liquid tight seal, unlike a labyrinth bearing isolator which is a restrictive pathway.

  2. Isomag bearing seals work in both static and dynamic conditions. Isomag seals do not require centrifugal forces to function and does not use any host equipment component as a dynamic sliding sealing surface.

  3. Isomag seal perform optimally in horizontal and vertical positions. As well as optimal performance in grease, splash oil, circulated oil, and bath oil conditions. For applications using oil mist, Isomag seals prevent stray mist from escaping the bearing housing

  4. Isomag's allow for air egress but still maintain a liquid tight seal. No air pressure can build up in the bearing housing because air molecules can pass beyond the faces.
