SureSeal Shaft Seal
The SureSeal shaft seal is an innovative product that has now become a best seller. It is a self-aligning, drip-free propeller shaft seal that supports shafts of various sizes, from one to eight inches and 25 to 160 millimeters.
A SureSeal model is also available for twin engine vessels, and this product features dual injection fittings, thus allowing the installation of a passive crossover line between the two seals. This is an advanced product, as it supplies lubricating water to cool the engine if you have a breakdown or if you are trolling with the engine idling. Propeller Depot offers competitive pricing on the entire line of Tides Marine SureSeal marine shaft seals.
Easy to Order
Ordering a SureSeal shaft seal is not a complicated process. You must simply confirm that adequate installation space exists between the coupling and the stern, and take accurate measurements of the stern tube's OD and the propeller shaft's diameter.
SureSeal is associated with the following benefits:
• Easy installation
• Replaceable lip seal, even when in water
• Lower maintenance costs
• Durable housing that does not absorb water
• Bearing longevity
Lip Seal Replacement
SureSeal's patented design includes a removable front cap, thus improving lip seal access: a worn out lip seal can be removed and replaced, even underwater.
The SureSeal water injection fitting is manufactured from 316-grade stainless steel and features a cap made from durable plastic. Therefore, if it is necessary to remove the injection hose, the cap prevents a rush of water from entering the vessel.
