Poole, UK – Lasdrop the USA based shaft seal manufacturer of both ‘mechanical’ and face ‘lip seal’ shaft seals have recently signed a deal with Marine Components International to become their exclusive European distributor. For the first time the complete range will be on display at the Southampton International Boat Show on stand J295 from the 15th to 22nd September 2023.
Lasdrop Dripless Shaft Seals offer an environmentally friendly solution preventing contaminated bilge water from entering the seaways. A high-quality well fitted yacht shaft seal solution will keep water out and ensure engine and bilge water is kept onboard.
The Lasdrop range is manufactured and designed in the USA, are backed with a three-year warranty.
There are 3 variants, and each model is easy to install, requires little or no maintenance, and is sold as a complete kit:
Lasdrop Gen II Shaft Seal. A unique and extremely high-quality mechanical shaft seal, a ball-bearing drive system allows the seal ring to “float” and remain in constant contact with the carbon graphite seal surface, resulting in a seal that’s impenetrable to water and extremely long lasting, around 20,000 hours of use. This seal is ideal for heavily used vessels such as commercial fishing boats.
Lasdrop EliteSeal. is a high-quality lip seal designed for quick and easy installation and minimal ongoing maintenance. This option uses a Nitrile lip seal that is in constant low friction contact with the propeller shaft, preventing water from entering your vessel. The simple, affordable solution to a leaking tired stuffing box. The EliteSeal comes with a spare lip seal carrier and split face design allowing two spare seals to be stored on the tube, removing the need to remove the whole shaft seal to replace the lip seal.
Lasdrop DrySeal. is a compact, economical lip seal designed for quick and easy installation. It offers all of the features of the EliteSeal including the split face design. Spare seals would be held loosely on the tube.
The Marine Components International technical team will be on hand during the whole show to assist with any questions you may have or help specify a shaft seal for your boat.
