OIL, GREASE, OR LIP SEAL O010_5

A spring loaded elastomer seal commonly used to seal bearings. Sometimes called a “lip seal”.

This is the standard method used by most manufacturers to seal the lubricant in a bearing. A better choice would be:

  • A labyrinth seal or
  • A bearing face seal

Grease seals are notorious for damaging the rotating shaft under the lip. See fretting for an explanation of why this happens
