The Safeseal Type SB1A is a single-cartridge seal for use with clean fluids and lubricants. It is versatile, easy to install and maintain. Although the design of the seal is simple, it contains advanced technical features, such as patented seal face holders and elastic mating ring. Seal faces are installed using a patented heat shrink process ensuring correct, distortion-free face alignment at all recommended temperatures.
