High Precision Applications in Automotive, Marine and Rail Industries
The high-performance fluid power systems found in racing vehicles require mechanical seals that match the distinctively demanding capabilities and reliability needed for highly engineered vehicles. MAGSEAL is known worldwide as a critical support to this industry where traditional commodity automotive seals can come in last.
Since our seal solutions have a long and excellent track record in aircraft systems which require maneuvering through high speed, high vibration, high pressure environments, MAGSEALs uniformly loaded, low torque designs make them perfect sealing solutions in Formula 1 and other high performance racing vehicles including racing motorbikes. MAGSEAL has been supplying critical seals to one of the leading Teams in Formula 1 racing for over 14 years.
More recently, the rapidly growing advanced specialty automotive market is turning to MAGSEAL for customized seal design and development in applications applying kinetic propulsion, in turbochargers, superchargers, in-wheel systems and on electric vehicles where low start torque and uniform loading are a critical requirement for managing and directing efficient power consumption.
With support through strategic partners, MAGSEAL is able to offer a full complement of static and dynamic seals to meet the demands of the marine applications. With its commercial sealing solutions, MAGSEAL provides seals for gyro systems and a variety of marine pumps and equipment supporting marine system readiness, crew safety and cost management.
MAGSEALs can be found in rail health services and inspection systems. The MAGSEAL’s unique ability to manage shaft run out, mechanical and harmonic vibration and overall environmental conditions allows rail inspection to be conducted without interruption. Moreover since rail health systems often apply lip seals, MAGSEAL is able to provide a custom design that can be retrofitted into existing lip seal cavities without modification to equipment.
