Tides Marine's Spare Seal Carriers were developed as a convenient device for storing spare lip seals on the propeller shaft between the SurSeal® and the propeller shaft coupling. These carriers (with spare lip seals) can be installed with each SureSeal.
The SureSeal design allows the vessel operator to replace worn lip seals in the housing with these spare lip seals without uncoupling the shaft from the transmission. If necessary, the worn lip seals may be replaced in the water – no haul-out required.
The spare lip seal carrier is a lightweight, two-piece composite housing which is clamped over the spare lip seals and onto the propeller shaft between the SureSeal and the propeller shaft coupling. They are available in both imperial and metric sizes.
