Timken Canada recently relaunched its partnership with Garlock Sealing Technologies to more aggressively pursue sales of their oil seal and bearing isolator products.
The announcement was made at a customer dinner event in Quebec City last month. Frank Mascia, managing director of Timken Canada, described the fit that Garlock product has with the portfolio of Bearing and PT products currently offered, and Mike Monica, Garlock’s director of global sales, emphasized the synergies to be recognized between the two organizations.
While Timken has been selling Garlock product since 2006, the market is now seeing the benefit to a rationalized supply base and the technical support that Timken technical sales representatives can provide, says the company. Timken now has a domestic inventory of seals and isolators supported by Garlock’s manufacturing base located in Palmyra, N.Y.
Premium seals, such as the Model 64, are assembled seals with a heavy duty metal outer case and a garter spring held in place with a stainless steel finger spring. They are available in three different Mill-Right elastomer materials. The Guardian Isolator is a bronze labyrinth non-contacting seal that is easy to install. Garlock says the isolator’s non-wearing components provide significantly extended equipment life.
