Tired Of Replacing Mechanical Seals?
ERL’s OBAF gives support to the pump shaft directly above the mechanical seal. This greatly reduces the stress on the mechanical seal from vibration caused by the diesel engine and the pump. The result is a longer lasting mechanical seal and less maintenance.
100% Stainless Bearing Housing
ERL’s OBAF Housing is completely constructed of 300 series stainless steel for long life. CNC machined to tight tolerances to allow for proper fitment of the bearing and provide proper support the mechanical seal.
ERL aligns the OBAF with the mechanical seal through a male snap fit. This ensures the OBAF gives the mechanical the support it needs for the longest life possible.
A lip seal is provided to seal the top side of the bearing from water and cargo to ensure maximum life.
Sealed cylindrical bearing eliminates the need for maintenance to grease the bearing and eliminates the potential for contamination.
Stainless Steel Sleeve
The bearing is attached to the shaft with a Stainless Steel Sleeve which eliminates potential corrosion issues to aid is disassembly. The sleeve also features ERL’s shaft saver technology which eliminates the potential for marring the shaft when tightening the set screws to the pump shaft. The shaft saver utilizes a hardened steel ring which ensures a tight shaft connection without damaging the shaft.
