Sealing against water ingress …

Tens of thousands of seagoing ships must meet tough demands on the world's oceans. The drive equipment in particular must satisfy demands for high reliability, so that operation is possible throughout the year with very little servicing and without having to stop for repairs. When a ship's drive shafts pass through one or more bulkheads, bulkhead seals minimize the passage of water from one section of the ship to the next to a minimum, and thereby also give the maximum possible time to rescue the crew in the event of an emergency. Bulkhead seals from EagleBurgmann Espey are short, the sealing elements can be assembled and dismantled easily without removing the shaft. They offer excellent compensation for inaccurarcy in the surroundings with a large axial play. Many international ship operators and fitters trust bulkhead wall seals from EagleBurgmann. The large number of approvals from marine and shipping organisations such as Germanischer Lloyd or ABS, the American Bureau of Shipping, also reflect the reliability of these seals.
