Tätningselement - Radialtätningar innehållande tätningselement av termoplast - Del 3: Lagring, hantering och installation (ISO 16589-3:2011, IDT)
ISO 16589 specifies seals utilizing sealing elements manufactured from suitably formulated compounds, based on thermoplastic materials, such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). They are considered suitable for use under low pressure conditions.
This part of ISO 16589 gives users of lip-type seals guidance on the careful storage and handling and proper installation of rotary shaft lip-type seals; attention is drawn to the hazards involved and ways of avoiding them are pointed out.
NOTE ISO 16589 is complementary to ISO 6194, which covers seals incorporating elastomeric sealing elements.
