Axial seal RMTA-RTMO type
RADICE AXIAL SEAL TYPE RMTA – RMTO
The RMTA and RMTO are a special and innovative product, produced and sold by Eliche Radice s.p.a., which is destined to replace the traditional packing.
The self extinguishing rubber used to produce the RMTA has an elastometric base and it is a low-friction one which has also special characteristics of being oilresistant and suitable for temperature from -10° to +80°.
The seals RMTA and RMTO are of reduced dimensions, easily assembled and come complete with stainless steel clamps and to a dispenser of sea water-resistant silicone based grease, which reduces friction and keeps down the temperature produced by the propeller shaft rotation. Additionally there is a special protection to help the shaft fitting.
Project important points:
- entrance point for the lubrificant grease, including a special closing cap, in order to help the insert on the seal.
- separate attachment for the water entrance in order to grant the necessary hydrolubrification of the shaft and the possibility to mount the seal above or under floating water.
- both type of seals are suitable for speed up to 30 knots.
