How it works
The chamber between the two oil-repellent lip seals is filled with oil and the resulting pressure effectively keeps water outside and oil inside the thruster gearbox.
The new Supreme Ventus Thruster edition is one of our green solutions. The seal has been approved by DNV GL to be in line with the Vessel General Permit.
The Supreme Ventus air-type seal is the seal that guarantees zero emissions of oil, an absolute minimum of wear and enables you to check the condition of the seal. The new Supreme Ventus uses a vacuum to dispose the leakage and has pressure compensation for every draught. This air flow decreases clogging in the drain pipe. The seal is self-regulating and adapts to the amount of leakage.
The Supreme TS3 shaft seal is designed for regular applications and consists of bronze housing parts, a chrome steel liner, 2 oil-repellent and 1 water-repellent lip seals.
The Supreme TS4 is a heavy duty design, equipped with an additional water-repellent lip seal.
