Press Release Summary:
I-Seal Fail-Safe Air Seal prevents spindle bearing contamination. Unit incorporates I-Beam design that evenly distributes air film around bearing. Seal cannot be damaged due to loss of air pressure, because centrifugal force is used in conjunction with air pressure. Product works at any duty cycle and can be used in high-pressure coolant applications. Air pressure of 5-10 psi continuously purges bearings through radial I-Beam distribution ring.
