Abstract : This invention relates to means for sealing an annular joint between an outer cylindrical member and an inner cylindrical member. The sealing means is designed to use a minimum number of component parts, while permitting considerable play or motion between the inner and outer members. A feature of the sealing means is that it can be installed between the inner and outer members without removing or disturbing other components. Another advantageous feature is that the sealing means can be installed or removed quickly in a single-step operation. Considerable radial misalignment or play can be tolerated between the inner and outer cylindrical members without harming the seal or interfering with the seal installation-removal process. In its installed position the seal takes up a relatively small space in the axial direction. (Author)
