New Premium Sine Seal Oil Seal

DCS SEW Eurodrive Premium Sine Seal Oil Seal 1 400

January 10, 2022


Oil seals are used to seal rotating shafts and to both protect the gear unit against dirt from outside and to protect the production environment from leaking lubricant. The oil seals must be able to withstand variable speeds, the pressure inside the gear unit, various temperature requirements and a range of other conditions.

Sealing solutions for gearmotors

Oil seals in today’s production systems are subject to increasingly challenging conditions and requirements. Our gear units, and therefore the sealing systems, are used in machines that run at variable speeds or at continuous duty and therefore cause the temperatures in the drive system to fluctuate. The pressure inside the gear unit also varies according to the capacity utilization.

SEW-EURODRIVE employs a special sealing systems to protect your system against leaking lubricant, to protect our gear units against outside dirt, and to protect the motor against oil expelled from the gear unit.

In addition to conventional oil seals, SEW-EURODRIVE now offers a completely NEW, optional sealing ring that was developed specially for us: the Premium Sine Seal. This oil seal was developed for the input motor shaft in gearmotors in collaboration with Freudenberg Sealing Technologies.

The advantage of the new Premium Sine Seal is that its sinusoidal sealing lip exhibits substantially increased durability, and during servicing the new oil seal can be placed in the same location on the shaft because the Premium Sine Seal does not cause any run-in on the shaft. The special shape of the sealing lip means that the contact area on the rotating shaft is larger, which improves both heat dissipation and the transfer of lubricant at the sealing surface.

Benefits at a glance

  • Wear reduced: on the sealing lip by about 50%
  • Expected service life longer: by a factor of 2 (compared to othe
    systems on the market), which means longer maintenance intervals
  • No run-in: or wear on the shaft – replacement oil seals can be installed at the same location
  • Improved reliability: against leakage with increased system availability

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
