Marine turbines

Marine turbines must be able to work for a long time without human intervention: here begin the challenge for PXL SEALS which supply sealing solution to the manufacturers.

hydro-exploitation

Subjected to the hostile marine environment, the rotations of blades and matt bearings from the marine turbines must be protected from any outside aggression which can alter their functioning.
To avoid that the sea water will be mixed with the bearings grease the sealing systems insure a long life barrier between the bearings and the sea water.

Besides the protection of the bearings, the large seals insure the mobility of the blades. Conditions of use are an mix between the pressure of the swell and the rotation speed from the system.

There are various systems of marine turbines depending the manufacturer, the power which is expected and the implanted area. PXL SEALS gives its expertise and develop or adapt the sealing systems to the customer specification..

For more than 20 years, PXL SEALS implements sealing solutions in the marine and river environments: our partners, the big OEM naturally trust PXL SEALS to lead their sealing’s projects for marine turbines application.
