Robust sealing performance
For most machinery, even small oil leaks can be a big problem. Today’s increasingly aggressive lubricants can threaten seal performance, damaging vital equipment which can lead to unplanned maintenance.

With the right seals you can reduce friction, retain lubricity and keep contaminants out of the system. Simplex and SKF seals are available in a range of designs, sizes and materials and can be delivered around the globe, fast. SKF Marine helps identify the right seal for each individual application and all our products and solutions are designed to give you cost-effective, reliable sealing performance.
