Bearing Sensor Wire (BSWS) Seals

Product Announcement from Conax Technologies

The Conax Technologies Bearing Sensor Wire Seal (BWSW) provides a continuous wire feedthrough for embedded bearing temperature sensors and seals securely to prevent oil wicking along the leads. This seal is designed to efficiently seal directly on the individual Teflon-insulated leads of an embedded bearing temperature sensor exiting an oil-filled bearing housing. Typical applications include large motors, generators, turbines, pumps, compressors and journal-bearing pedestals.

The BSWS seal consists of a reusable stainless steel fitting with a replaceable viton sealant. It features the Conax-designed "soft sealant" technology that uses the compression of a material within a fixed housing to develop a strong seal. No potting is necessary on this easily installed seal. For use in pressures to 50 psi (3.4 bar) and temperature range from ambient to +100º F (+37.8º C). Seals 2 to 14 wires.
