Dynamic Seals

Gearboxes are highly complex systems: multiple interactions occur between different components in parallel, some synergistic and some antagonistic; some beneficial and some harmful. To transmit power from an energy source to machinery, gearboxes need four elements: gears, an input / output shaft, roller bearings and seals.

Healthy seals are critical for effective industrial gearbox function, with seal testing looking to become ever more demanding as OEMs maintain focus on this area. This article explores how Afton is leading the quest for a  deeper understanding of the mechanisms behind seal failure modes, to enhance gearbox and lubricant performance and durability.
