LIP SEALS -- STRESS AND DEFORMATION STUDIES
Lip-type seals are employed in oil-lubricated stern-tube sealing systems of large, modern merchant marine ships. The seals, which are made of elastomers, have a tendency toward frequent failure. This paper presents the results of the analyses in the form of a comparison between radial force, stress, and deformation obtained on lip seal configurations in current use. Also discussed are the effects of seal supports on the reduction of radial lip seal forces.
