Oil Seal Engineering has developed sophisticated tools and techniques which enable the end user of the oil seal to expect a high degree of reliability from a very inexpensive product. This paper portrays the development steps necessary to bring a line of oil seals from an idea to the market place. Emphasized are the design considerations, the test methods employed to verify the design parameters, and discussion of the performance characteristics as they relate to applications. The result—a seal design that can be utilized in a variety of applications with a degree of reliability not previously attainable.
