The present design guide will provide engineers with the necessary information and data on the shaft seals, including the wide variety of the designs and materials involved. The content was written by the RL Company, one of the world leaders in the field, currently tooling for over twenty thousand sizes of the standard shaft seal.

However, it shall be understood and remembered at all times, that each seal should fit its specific application and be designed accordingly. Several important factors shall be taken into consideration when determining the most suitable seal for the particular application, such as materials to manufacture the seal, its type, condition under which it is going to operate, dimensions, and others.

The seals addressed in this guide are commonly used together with the rotating and reciprocating shafts and their purpose is to contain the fluids. Another objective of their application is to exclude the contaminants. Among the strengths of the seals there are effectiveness in different environments, ability to be easily installed, and efficiency. All of the factors have been dealt with in detail in the guide, since they significantly influence the seal design.
