concept of good clearance. Manufacturers of Labyrinth seals employ a variety of forms to construct these seals. However, the fundamental principle is to place the rotor (spinning) as well as a stator (stationary) element with a radial gap to separate the two parts in a seal.
When selecting labyrinth and clearing seals, both the operational rate and temperature have to be considered. Most often, they don’t operate effectively at slower speeds. Laminar sealing rings, which utilize a sequence of washer-like flat rings made from metal that have different diameters, to form an labyrinth-like seal, is another kind of labyrinth sealing seal that can be cleared.
Labyrinth seals often use several non-contact metal rings or other tools to form a labyrinth that makes difficult for undesirable material to get through while safeguarding the critical lubricants. Clearance seals can control the distance between the outer dimension of the sealing band as well as its spinning shaft.
Labyrinth and clearing seals, different from single-lip seals because they distribute pressure across the seal rather than only one location, feature grooves that act as lips. There are numerous options available for tooth design, which include one-piece, multi-piece divided halves, stepped and split.
