Freudenberg-NOK’s energy saving seal (ESS) is designed to reduce friction-related energy losses by up to 75% compared with conventional radial shaft seals. With the ESS product line, the company's engineers have reinvented the radial shaft seal to help customers meet increasing demands for improved fuel economy and reduced emissions by significantly reducing friction. The technology combines an elastomer with a new optimized lip loading design that in many applications eliminates the need for the spring found in conventional shaft seals. The ESS seals also offer improved durability, according to the company.
