The PSS Shaft Seal is the number one selling marine mechanical seal
worldwide and is installed as standard equipment by many of the worlds most
reputable boat builders / yards. The PSS Shaft Seal is also recognized as
the premiere retrofit (aftermarket) seal on the world market. Certified by
Bureau Veritas, ABS & Rina: Boat builders / yards recognize the advantages
and value of installing the PSS as it eliminates the maintenance, constant
adjustment & cost associated with traditional packing type glands. Aside
from these benefits, the PSS Shaft Seal helps to eliminate water in the
bilge (100% water tight) & wear to the propeller shaft. The PSS Shaft Seal
can be easily retrofitted and is available for shafts ranging from 3/4"
(20mm) to 6" (150mm).

The PSS Shaft Seal is a mechanical face seal that is created between
the flat surfaces of the rotating stainless steel rotor and the stationary
carbon flange. The stationary carbon flange is attached to the vessels stern tube with hose clamps and the carbon flange is attached to the front side of the bellows with hose clamps. The stainless steel rotor is fit on the shaft
in front of the carbon flange. The stainless steel rotor is used to compress the bellows before the collar is secured to the shaft with set-screws. This
compression (pre-load) maintains contact between the faces and allows the
PSS to compensate for the thrust from the propeller. The carbon flange is
bored larger than the shaft diameter allowing it to "float" around the shaft and thus compensate for most misalignment and vibration problems. The
stainless steel collar is sealed to the shaft by two o-rings that are
recessed into the bore of the collar. These o-rings rotate with the shaft
and stainless steel rotor and do not experience wear during operation.


**As with any rubber hose below waterline, the PSS bellows must be inspected on a regular basis for any sign of wear, aging or chemical deterioration.
PYI suggests as preventative maintenance that the PSS bellow be replaced in
six year intervals. During bellows replacement it is recommended the o-rings & set screws in the stainless steel rotor also be replaced."

Bellows may need to be more frequently inspected in an environment where
non-sealed batteries emit sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid vapor will accelerate rubber deterioration, as will an ozonater.

The Maintenance Kit includes the items you need to properly maintain your
PSS Shaft Seal. Included in the kit is one (1) PSS bellow, two (2) O-rings,
five (5) set screws, four (4) new hose clamps and an allen key.

FAQ

Return Policy

We don't want to see you stuck with a part that is not right for your application, or that you no longer need.  We issue refunds every day to make sure our customers have a positive purchase experience.  All these are issued as refunds, we do not maintain store credits. Returns must be initiated within 30 days of receiving the order.

However, for various policy, safety, and regulatory reasons, a small number of items are non-returnable for credit.  These are normally noted on the product page and visible at the time of purchase.  See our Returns Policy for full details on product returnability.

For orders where the item has been received is incorrect, defective or has been damaged in transit, we will pay return shipping and either replace the item or refund the amount paid, at the customer's discretion.

If the reason for the return is different, the customer is responsible for inbound and outbound shipping costs.  Shipping costs paid on the original order are non-refundable.  For orders shipped free on our $99 Free Shipping offer, an amount may be deducted from your refund to cover outbound shipping costs if returned.

Special Orders are normally non-cancellable and non-returnable because a lot of additional work must be performed to obtain a special order part that is not ordered very often.  If we are able to facilitate a special order return, you may have up to a 30% restocking fee deducted from your refund to cover manufacturer restocking fees and other associated costs.

Refunds can only be returned to the same method of payment that was originally used to pay for the order.
