PALMYRA, NY--(Marketwired - October 27, 2015) -


  • Ideal for food and pharmaceutical applications
  • PTFE-based sealing lip excludes aggressive and abrasive media
  • Patented GYLON® material ensures FDA approval, SIP/CIP compatibility

Garlock, a leading manufacturer of high-performance fluid sealing and pipeline protection products, proudly introduces the PS-Seal® to the North American market.

Specifically designed for use on rotating shafts at high circumferential speeds, high pressures, vacuum environments and temperatures of -130°F (-90°C) to up to +500°F (260°C), the PS-Seal® reliably prevents intrusion of damaging abrasive and aggressive media in a wide variety of food and pharmaceutical applications.

"Our laboratory and field tests have shown the PS-Seals provide a unique combination of exceptional performance within demanding conditions along with the ability to meet the strict requirements of American food and drug regulations," said Robert Bourdelais, Portfolio Leader, Dynamic Seals.

The PS-Seal® operates reliably in extreme conditions where traditional elastomeric radial shaft seals fail due to the use of Garlock’s patented GYLON® material, which also ensures FDA approval and SIP/CIP compatibility.

"The PS-Seal’s exceptional wear and chemical resistance, low friction and good dry running characteristics have been trusted by customers in Europe for years," said Garlock Product Manager Baha Kutup. "We’re proud that our North American customers can now also benefit from a practical and cost-effective GYLON-based sealing solution for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industry."

Garlock PS-Seals are usable in many different applications and can also be an alternative to mechanical seals and braided packings. The PS-Seal® is available in a wide range of configurations and styles, including:

  • Dual Opposed
  • Dual Tandem
  • Single Lip
  • Single Lip Reverse
