CEA-Seal Propeller Shaft Seal
    C.E.& A. Co.'s own design and manufactured seal.    

The CEA-Seal is a simple, robust, low cost compression type oil seal suitable for propeller shafts from 2" to 10" diameter.
Manufactured from marine grade gun metal and a specially formulated neoprene rubber the CEA-Seal has now been fitted to many hundreds of vessels around the Australasian region.
These seals can be fitted both outboard and inboard. For the inboard seal a cooling jacket is required and a shaft clamp and compression assembly.

Our Inboard Shaft Seal Assembly comprises custom manufactured Cooling Jacket, CEA-Seal, Compression Plate/Compression Springs/Shaft Clamp. The Cooling Jacket also incorporates sterntube Oil Drain and Oil Vent.

To compliment the Inboard Shaft Seal Assembly we have an Oil Feed System comprising Gravity Oil Feed Tank and a Manual 'Flow-Thru' pump.

In addition to our standard CEA-Seal we can also supply a modified No 9 seal as a direct replacement to the early Carrington Slipway manufactured seal.
This seal was fitted to many vessels built at Carringtons in Newcastle, NSW during their many years of operation.
Our No 9C will replace the seals on a 204 to 228mm shaft with a propeller mount of 12 x 1/2" holes on 335mm PCD.

We have also produced a mould to manufacture a replacement rubber insert for this seal. Only one size has been produced but if you have a vessel with a Carrington's seal fitted, talk to us and we will see if we can help.
