Case study APAC0033 – Chesterton products – Chesterton EPS
The input shaft of a gearbox was suffering from frictional corrosion (fretting) causing oil leakage which needed frequent repairs. With the elevated position of the gearbox, it is difficult and expensive to repair and replace elements within, and so our client was looking for a solution to stop the fretting at its root. The Chesterton® PLS (Polymer Labyrinth Seal) was suggested and has provided long lasting results for over five years.
