General Specifications Timken industrial seals offer a leading combination of quality, technology and high performance. However, there are additional considerations - such as shaft finish, temperatures and other operating factors -that can impact the level of performance achieved. We recommend the following practices to ensure that you are maximizing the efficiency and the life of your bearings and machinery. For specific application assistance, contact your Timken sales representative. Shaft Finish The amount of contact between the shaft surface and the sealing element, and the condition...

Engineering Data Engineering Data 6. Adjust machine’s rotational speed to 60 RPM. 7. Measure the axial movement of the thread while the shaft or sleeve rotates for a period of 30 seconds. 8. Look for movement at both edges of the shaft by placing the thread there as well. 9. Reverse the direction of the shaft or sleeve rotation and repeat the test. 10. Refer to Table 2 to determine results. Comparing Shaft Lead – Lead Angle The lead of a shaft is compared with other shafts of differing diameters by calculating the lead angle. This is found by dividing the string advance by the product of...

Shaft-to-Bore Misalignment Shaft-to-bore misalignment is the distance by which a shaft is off center relative to its bore. To measure this, calculate the distance between the shaft center line and the bore centerline, as shown in Figure 5. Dynamic Runout Dynamic runout is the amount by which a shaft, at the sealing surface, does not rotate around the true center. You can measure dynamic runout by holding a dial indicator against the shaft surface while it is slowly rotated. The resulting measurement is called a total indicator reading, or TIR. See Figure 6. Pressure Data Table 3 shows the...

Model 145 Face Seal Dimensional Data DIM # IMPORTANT NOTE Recommendations printed in this catalog pertaining to shaft finishes, misalignment, runout, speeds, temperatures and tolerances are generally applicable. The combination of a selected seal with a certain application, and the operating circumstances involved, could modify the performance of the seal and/or the equipment. To get the most out of your Timken seals, submit full information to ensure that the seal(s) you receive are suitable for your application.

Equipment Inspection and Preparation Before installing any lip seal, equipment should be thoroughly inspected. Follow the specifications below for best results: Shaft Surface Finish [Roughness Average or AA (Arithmetic Average)] • With the exception of PS-1 (Model 61), all shafts should have a surface finish within 10-20 pin. (0.25-0.50 pm). • For PS-1 (Model 61), the surface finish should be within 4-8 p in (0.10-0.20 pm). • The surface finish direction of all seals must be perpendicular to the shaft axis of rotation. Bore Surface Finish, Ra ([Roughness Average or AA (Arithmetic...

Installation Instructions Seals • Typically, the shaft has a wear groove created from previous seals. Make sure the new sealing lip does not seal in the same location. • When drive features such as keyways or splines are present, they must be covered using an installation tool similar to the one shown in Figure 10 below, and using “Installation Method D” shown in Figure 10 on the next page. If the use of a tool is prohibited by the size of the shaft, use one of the following options: Installation Methods Installation Method A Thru Bore: Installation tool bottoms on machined face...

Seals Installation Instructions • Continue by rotating the wooden block to the appropriate positions (3 and 4, 5 and 6, 7 and 8), hitting the center of the block with the mallet each time. IMPORTANT NOTE The 0.015 in. protrusion will be built into the width of the seal. The depth of the bore housing should be machined to the seal width specified on the package. • Repeat the pattern until the seal is properly seated in the housing bore. The seal is fully seated when the difference between the seal surface and the housing surface is equal to or less than 0.010 in. (0.254 mm). Split Seal...
