Also for outboard seals Poseidon manufacturers shaft seals for water, grease and oil lubricated shaft installations. Every lubrication require its own specific sealing. Especially for cloes water lubrication Poseidon has developed a special seal: the Pegasas Outboard Seal. This seal is developed for NO leaking applications. Shaft sizes from 50 mm up to 200 mm (2″up to 8″).
The Pegasus seal allows both big axial and radial movements.
The housing is standard manufactured of seawater resisitant bronze but is also available in seawater resisting aluminium.
The Pegasus seal Deluxe is having a bronze liner that has a ceramic lay in the runways of the seal.
This gives an enormous lifesoan. The liner can be fitted on the shaft or against the propeller face.
The stand by seal is an by oil pressure inflated rubber seal that can be used in case of emergency.
When maintenance on the seal is required, it is possible to push the shaft backwards when disonnected from the gearbox without slipping the vessel.
Split seals are available. Using these it is NOT required to demount the shaft from the gearbox flange when changing seals.
The Pegasus seal is approved by all classification societies.
