KLS® Lip Seal Sizes
KLS spring-loaded lip seals have remarkable high-pressure performance, compared to other spring-loaded lip seals. This performance is due to the hydrodynamic interfacial lubrication of the extrusion-resistant plastic portion of the seal. This interfacial lubrication is provided during rotation by a patented hydrodynamic wave geometry on the low-pressure end of the seal.
Like all Kalsi-brand rotary shaft seals, the KLS seal requires a lubricant reservoir to accommodate the hydrodynamic pumping related seal leakage. Unlike most Kalsi-brand seals, the lubricant for the KLS seal can be supplied from a simple gravity fed reservoir.
The KLS seal was designed as a rotating control device (RCD) seal. It has been tested with 1,000 psi differential pressure at 545 ft/minute and 1,500 psi at 136 ft/minute. It can be used in most pressure-retaining applications that require high performance rotary lip seals.
Additional KLS sizes can be furnished, subject to a one-time tooling charge to help to defray associated engineering, machining and set-up expenses. Purchase orders and quote requests for this unique high pressure lip seal should be sent to the attention of Seal Sales via fax at 281-240-0255), or by e-mail.
