We believe in the principle that you can’t be all things to all people. Garlock has chosen to be the leading manufacturer of radial lip seals and bearing protection devices servicing the industrial marketplace. We believe the best method to get our products to the industrial customer is through strategic alliances with our distribution partners. Our commitment to our distributors, and the ultimate user, is to constantly introduce new and innovative products at higher levels of quality with an emphasis on compressed lead times - products that will last longer and reduce overall maintenance costs. All of our employees have a “can do” attitude and take pride in helping customers. You have a problem? We have a solution. All we ask is the chance to prove ourselves; you won’t be disappointed!
Thus, we offer a wide range of Klozure® oil seals and bearing isolators for the following types of equipment.
Pulp & Paper - Pumps, Paper Machines, Gear Boxes, and Split Pillow Block bearings
Steel / Mining - Ore Conveyors, Casters, Rolling Mills, Reversing Mills, Coilers, and Coating Lines
Chemical - Centrifuges, Extruders, Pumps
Power Generation - Boiler Feed Pumps, Coal Pulverizers
Our focus is to solve sealing problems with engineered cost savings. Together, we look at each sealing application and evaluate cost related to cycles, down time, fluid loss, power consumption, equipment wear, as well as the cost of the sealing product itself. Combining those factors, we then match the product that will provide you the lowest overall operating cost. Below are some examples of a few of these products.
Process pump bearing frames typically utilize lip seals. The lip seals harden and groove the shaft, and eventually leak. Motors typically do not have any seals, and allow contamination into the windings. Pumps need to be taken out of service to replace lip seals and repair shafts and motors.
