IsoMag Bearing Seals: Superior Performance Compared to Labyrinth Isolators and Lip Seals

Isomag's unique design utilizes lapped flat faces to create a 100% positive seal that is governed by magnetic energy. Unlike lip seals, IsoMag bearing isolators do NOT damage your host equipment and can increase your Mean Time Between Repairs by 1000%. Unlike labyrinth isolators, Isomags perform reliably in all types of lubrication systems, including oil mist.

 

  • Lip seals use equipment's shaft as the primary sealing surface, causing wear to your host equipment.
  • Lip seals average life cycle is 3-6 months, leading to frequent downtime and less MTBR.

  • Labyrinths are designed with an inherent leak path.
  • Labyrinths only work well in certain lubrication conditions (e.g. circulated, splash) but are not efficient in others (e.g. oil mist, bath, flooded).
 
 

  • Isomag's o-ring driven sealing face rotates with the shaft, causing zero wear on your equipment.
  • Isomag's average life cycle is 5-10+ years, which greatly increases the MTBR of your equipment.

  • Isomag's design utilizes lapped flat faces that create a 100% positive seal leaving no leak path.
  • Isomags seal efficiently in all lubrication conditions, and are currently the only isolator that achieves zero stray mist leakage in oil mist applications.
