Lip seal for external tensioner shaft
for MAJOR CYCLONE TORNADE sanders
The main function of the sander's external tension shaft lip seal is to prevent dust and debris from entering the interior of the sander, which could damage internal components and shorten the life of the machine. It also helps to maintain the stability and performance of the machine by preventing external elements from interfering with the operation of the tensioner shaft.
The wear points of the sander's outer tensioner shaft lip seal depend on a number of factors, including the intensity of use of the sander, the types of material being sanded and the working environment. Here are some common signs of lip seal wear:
1. Dust leaks: If you notice dust leaking around the outer tension shaft of the sander, this may indicate that the lip seal is damaged or worn.
2. Reduced dust collection efficiency: If the sander is no longer able to collect dust efficiently during use, this may be due to a faulty lip seal.
3. Unusual noises: A damaged lip seal can cause unusual noises when the sander is running.
4. Reduced performance: If you notice a significant drop in the sander's performance, this may be due to a worn lip seal, as it can cause disturbances in the tensioner shaft drive mechanism.
In general, it is recommended that you replace the sander's outer tensioner shaft lip seal as soon as you notice any signs of wear or deterioration. It is essential to keep this component in good condition to ensure that the sander works properly and lasts for a long time. Replacement of the lip seal should be carried out in accordance with the sander manufacturer's recommendations and using suitable replacement parts.
