The available size range of HMS5 and HMSA10 seals includes a full coverage of the ISO 6194-1 and DIN 3760 dimensions for shaft diameters up to 250 mm (9.842 in.) as well as an extensive range of dimensions commonly used in the market. New dimensions are continually added. Main features include:
Optimized sealing lip material
Spring-loaded sealing lip
Optimally balanced sealing lip and flex section

Applications and operating conditions
HMS5 and HMSA10 seals are designed for oil or grease lubricated applications with operating temperatures ranging from –40 to +100 °C (–40 to +210 °F), short-term up to 120 °C (250 °F). These seals are also appropriate for sealing lubricants within a wide range of viscosities.
Circumferential speed: up to 14 m/s (2 755 ft/min)
Operating pressure: max 0,03 MPa (5 psi)
These values are the maximum value for each service condition and should not occur together. Consideration should be given as to how the operating conditions affect each other.
