Whether you are shutting your machinery down to perform scheduled maintenance or to repair a failed internal component, the most important factor to consider is how to minimize the equipment’s downtime. Colonial Seal Company realizes how costly repairs to your machinery are when you consider maintenance costs as well as lost production time and is here to help reduce that time and possibly eliminate it altogether. Colonial Seal’s Custom Seal capabilities allow us to provide our customers with unique sealing solutions designed to the customer’s specifications typically within 5 business days.
Colonial Seal’s Custom Metal-Cased seals are available in sizes ranging from 1.2” (30.5mm) OD to 68” (1,727mm) OD. Casing for these seals is available in Stainless Steel, Mild Steel and Brass with the seal lip material available in NBR, Viton®, Teflon®, Silicone, Leather and HNBR (FDA materials are also available upon request). Our unique design and manufacturing process allows us to quickly replace obsolete or discontinued styles including the following:
- Garlock 64, Garlock 53 and Garlock P.S. styles

No tooling charges or minimum order quantity along with our short lead time provides our customers with the seal they need as quickly as possible while remaining cost-effective. These solutions are ideal in situations when your failed seal is no longer being provided by the OEM and their only recommendation is to replace your entire assembly.
Beyond providing our customers with quality sealing solutions for custom applications or replacements for discontinued parts, Colonial Seal takes it one-step farther. We offer a complete line of Inpro/Seal parts including their unique Bearing Isolators. Is your equipment difficult to access? Does scheduled maintenance for replacing internal components lead to expensive, complete manufacturing line shutdowns? Bearing Isolators could be your answer!
The Inpro/Seal Bearing Isolator is a two-part dynamic seal consisting of a stator, most commonly press-fit into the bearing housing, and a rotor attached to the shaft. The rotor and stator form a non-contacting compound labyrinth seal with no wearing parts. This unique design allows bearing lubricant to be captured in the inner portion of the labyrinth and to flow directly back into the bearing housing. All outside contaminants attempting to enter the bearing is captured in the outer labyrinth paths and expelled through a port in the rotor by centrifugal force and gravity.
This Bearing Isolator provides you with a single sealing solution that can more than double the lifetime of your rotating equipment. This is an ideal fit for anyone who is looking to reduce the frequency of required maintenance shutdowns and/or looking to extend the operating life of their rotating equipment. Some of the most common applications that can utilize the Bearing Isolator include pumps, motors, gearboxes, pillow blocks, steam turbines, sleeve-bearing motors, paper machine rolls and various other types of rotating equipment. These isolators can be designed to fit your unique specifications, and all come with a performance guarantee. Designs can additionally be split for ease of installation, and all are typically shipped same-day.
Whether you are looking to replace an obsolete OEM part, designing new equipment that requires a non-standard sealing solution or looking to extend the operating life of your machinery while reducing maintenance downtime; Colonial Seal Company can provide you with an ideal sealing solution.
