Paddi Seals are particularly hostile environments for seals; axles and PTOs are typically running in a rice water medium. Even with multiple wiper lips, Elastomer seals may not be able to achieve a satisfactory lifespan, and with the slightest oil leakage potentially ruining the crop, a tougher and more effective sealing solution is required.
To combat these conditions, Pioneer Weston designed Paddi seals, which are unitised mechanical seals that can withstand the harshest conditions. These seals do not wear the shaft and with rubber OD and ID are simple to replace.
A further benefit of these seals is that they can tolerate a greater radial movement that Unitised or Lip seals.
