Selected Simplex sealing solutions for naval vessels
Simplan fwd seal
At SKF Marine we have developed the ultimate seal for water-lubricated sterntubes. The utilisation of unique, state-of-the-art material combinations and the expertise gained through over 60 years of experience has resulted in the SIMPLAN shaft seal.
With our SIMPLAN seals we offer a unique combination of SiC “hard against hard” sealing faces. We have developed materials for the seal which are unaffected by even the hardest sands or sediments. The durability of these sealing rings exceeds the operation lifetime of conventional sealing rings by far.
Carboplan Plus submarine seal
The Carboplan Plus is a mechanical face-type seal for water-lubricated sterntubes. It was developed to fulfil the highest standards in terms of quality and durability. This seal has been used internationally in the submarines of several navies since 1984. Every demand made on this type of product such as resistance to shock, vibration, pressure and corrosion, as well as ease of maintenance and repair is fully met by the Carboplan Plus.
