A Rubber Seal is a device that is used to prevent the leakage of lubricating oil in mechanical equipment by closing the spaces between the moving and stationary components of the equipment. Rubber seals come in various sizes depending on the equipment capacity. These seals fit on various valves, pipes and any other openings where the leakage of lubricating oil needs to be prevented. The seals are used to perform two important roles, i.e., to hold the oil in place and help in lubricating the machineâs moving parts by ensuring there is no lubricant leakage. Rubber seals also ensure that harmful contaminants do not let it leak in various parts of the equipment.
