Adherence to environmental regulations are a key concern for ship operators when considering sealing solutions. Oil leakages can result in severe financial penalties, therefore the need for an environmentally compliant solution is critical.
The Wärtsilä Airguard seal addresses this concern through its sealing design, separating seawater and stern tube oil through a void space, which is constantly managed. This is further reinforced through its balanced, closed oil lubricated and air supply system, helping to reduce seal sensitivity, radial shaft movements and hull vibrations.
